This is a difficult period for many of us. Psychologically, physically, and financially. But nonetheless, don’t forget about giving back. Nonprofits of all types need our support. It doesn’t have to be money. Donate your time as a volunteer. Participate in a fundraiser, such as a walk. Take those with no transportation to doctor visits. Or do any number of other tasks. And yes, monetary contributions help too.
Look at our other posts on this topic. And remember that both the donor and donee benefit!
Be Thankful: Don’t Forget About Giving Back
Life has been a whirlwind since we first heard the term COVID-19. Over a few short weeks, the coronavirus pandemic has posed profound health concerns and an array of challenges and disruptions, from canceled events and school closures to supply shortages and financial uncertainty.
While we’re all feeling the effects in different ways and to different extremes, so many of us — fortunate to be in a position to give — are asking the same question: What can we do?
We asked the community of Certified B Corporations what those who are able are doing to make an impact while complying with current health regulations and best practices. Inspired by their stories and ideas, here are 10 ways that we can all get involved right now:
- Support a small business.
- Volunteer virtually.
- Be mindful at the grocery store.
- Reallocate unused funds to local charities.
- Give blood.
- Patronize companies that give back.
- Share your knowledge.
- Get takeout.
- Check in on a neighbor.
- Keep connecting.
