Valentine's Day is coming up yay!
There are so many people in need who we sometimes forget about that we can show love to on that day! Here are a few ideas of ways to give back on Vday or ANY day!
Volunteer and offer to help at a local community organization or soup kitchen. Google your local area to find those in need.
Take a stand against violence- Show love and support for those who are being abused and unloved. Google domestic violence or human trafficking organizations in your local area.
Give Blood! What better way to spread love than to save lives? I recently gave blood after not doing it for a few years and it felt great to help others! Whoo hoo!
Mentor someone in need. Big Brothers Big Sisters is a great organization to find someone to mentor and you should be able to find other organizations in your city to help as well!
Give a Bear Hug! Mother Bear Project is dedicated to providing comfort and hope to children affected by HIV/AIDS in emerging nations, by giving them a gift of love in the form of a hand-knit or crocheted bear.
Deliver handmade cards- Make beautiful Valentine's Day Cards with inspirational quotes or poems and drop them off at nursing homes, community organizations servicing troubled families in need, or give one to your mailman! Is there someone who really blessed you in your life? Make them a 'thank you for your love/support' card too!
Donate- Drop off food at a local food bank or donate clothes to Goodwill or a local organization who is accepting clothing. Bring some handmade cards along! ;-)
Send love letters to the troops- Check out sites like A Million Thanks and Any Soldier. There is also a great list of organizations you can send to at Support Our Troops.
How are you inspiring others and giving back this Valentine's Day?
