6 Ways To Give Back Using Your Own Home
Dec 12, 2019
There are so many ways to make a difference this holiday season.- and you don’t have to look any further than your own home. Read below for 6 ways to make a difference!
- Be the hostess who gives the mostess! You provide the food and drink- your guests provide the donation! A great way to support a cause or charity you care about is to ask your guests to bring a donation in lieu of a traditional hostess gift. This is wonderful way to spread the word and help inspire your guests. (You can even offer to match all donations made at the party to help incentivize the giving spirit!) Your guests will leave with full bellies and happy hearts!
- Donate your space for a fundraiser! Do you have a great kitchen? A living room you’re especially proud of? Share your good real estate fortune with a nonprofit to host a fundraiser. Intimate fundraisers are an important way for charities to get one-on-one time with busy, high profile donors Creating a bespoke experience can help facilitate or deepen valuable relationships. Space in NYC is always in short supply but you can make a difference by sharing yours!
- Host a packing party! Looking for a fun way to reconnect with friends in the midst of the crazy holiday season? Invite your friends over for a toy packing party. They bring toys to gift to children in need, and you provide the wrapping supplies (and necessary libations!). This is great for families and people of all ages. You can donate the toys to a local community center or religious organization in your area. The more local the better!
- Make a furry friend. The holiday season is the time that many are thinking about giving to our friends and families, but we shouldn’t forget our furry companions! Shelters and rescue organizations are always looking for ‘foster’ moms and dads to help provide temporary homes for cats and dogs. You can provide love and companionship to an animal that will help it find its forever home- what better gift could there be?
