10 Ways to Use Your Generosity for GOOD This #GivingTuesday

6. Meet a Neighbor

It might sound silly, but in our technological world today, it can be easy to come and go, without ever knowing the people who live around you. Whether you know them or not, take time on this #GivingTuesday to bake some cookies or bring a meal to a neighbor near you.

7. Hang With the Elders

Nursing homes everywhere are filled with people who have a lot of life left to live, but are often constrained to the walls of the caregiving facility. Spend your lunch break visiting with our elderly neighbors on this #GivingTuesday. You can simply sit and chat, play games or even bring some nail polish and serve up some quality manicures.

8. Offer Your Services

Take today and give a set of parents in your life a much-needed break by offering to babysit for the evening. Maybe you can offer your truck and your muscles to help someone move, or to help deliver coats, food and necessities to homeless people in town. Perhaps you are a housekeeper extraordinaire and know a single mom who really just needs help organizing. Get creative with it, and offer yourself in whatever ways might help someone on this #GivingTuesday.

9. Tip Generously

If you’re anything like me, you probably tip somewhere between 15-20 percent when you go out to eat. Well, this #GivingTuesday sounds like the perfect night to go out for dinner and to leave a generous tip for your waitress. It doesn’t have to be some elaborate $5,000 tip, just simply more than the usual percentage.

10. Spread Awareness

If you couldn’t already tell, the hashtag, #GivingTuesday is trending, and it’s an excellent way to start the conversation about the day of giving. Whether you use it to tag the photo of your QR code for Chick-Fil-A, or simply in a status to coordinate a group effort, use the hashtag and spread awareness for a cause that’s close to your heart today.

We all have the power to do good. Sometimes it just takes a little reminder of how easy it is to do something more for the people around us.

Join us this #GivingTuesday as we spread love, kindness, and generosity in our communities.
