How To Donate To Charity

Oct 12, 2007
There are many ways that you can make a charity donation, but you don't have to use money to do so. There are many who think that if they don't have thousands of dollars to give to a charity that there is no point in making a donation. You don't have to have a lot to donate, and there are plenty of other things that people need you can give. You can give your time, your old items, and even your blood. Sometimes, these things are even more useful than a money donation.

If you want to give a charity donation but you don't have a lot of money, you can give what you can afford. There are many charities in your community that would appreciate ten or fifteen dollars if that is all you have to give. If you see a red kettle around Christmas, it only takes the change in your pocket to make a difference.

These types of small charity donations are what keep many charities going. Though the large amounts can do more, the tiniest amounts can add up quickly. Your small charity donation may do more than you think, as long as you are giving it to the right charity.

You can also use time as a charity donation. You can spend your time doing many things. You can clean up your community, spend time with underprivileged children, or you can work in a soup kitchen. You can also make a charity donation of many of the older items in your home.

You can give old clothing, household items, and books and toys, as long as they are in decent condition. If something is broken or stained it is not a good charity donation. If you won't use it for those reasons, chances are good that no one else will want to either.

When you think about making a charity donation, make sure you are sure about who you are giving your money to. There are many, many great charities out there, but there are a few who mismanage money, and even some scams that just want to take your money.

Do some research online before you give a charity donation to anyone, so you can be sure your money is being put to good use. Remember that even though you don't think you have a lot to give, even an hour of your time can make a difference in the life of someone else.
