    Where there is sort of a cost to this (but it's kind of like the credit card idea) [smile][dot][amazon][dot][com] is a way to donate to a charity of your choice. A percent of your purchase goes to a charity of your choice.

    I know this is late since Christmas has passed, but if anyone has Amazon gift cards, you can go to amazon by putting a "smile." in front of the address.

    Thought I'd offer a tip somewhere since I'm asking so many questions in the debt threads. *blush*

    You should be passionate about it

    I could not agree more with all that you've said. But I guess you must be passionate with what you are doing. No matter if you are donating your time and effort, it would still be useless if you don't like what you are doing. I really love this thread!

    Your post is certainly true. You don't have to be rich in order to be a part of any charity works. Aside from that, charity works are not only for wealthy men and women. Your post has greatly imply that even ordinary people can help without spending more. Their time and skills are already enough, and this can make a huge difference.

    All Great Ideas

    I think it is a shame that there are not more people who want to donate their time energy or whatever to help others. We unfortunately live in such a self centered world that we see these things less and less.

    I try to help the homeless every week by making food and sending it out to them where they are on the streets.

    Fantastic post and replies too. I usually donate money to orphanages and home for the ageds. But there is so much more you can do that just give money.

    Time

    Hi appreciate this post so much. I myself is a volunteer,I love doing charity works, and joining different groups and institution that help and support people who need caring and attention. Offering your time is a big help, it can provide so much assistance to other people. Though we know it's really hard because we also need to work for ourselves, but you'll know in the end it's worth it.

    I agree with donating my skills... Anyone need my service, (i'm an artist) i'm here in Tennessee, but if you think i'm too far, I can outreach my hand to you through prayers... Also, donate by clicking is a nice idea...

    A great idea is to volunteer where you can. We can always help out local community organisations and things like that - it's a great way to give something back.

    My compromise on the stealing/taking what you pay for deal from hotels is that I take the stuff that's opened and the hotel can't use again: soap and shampoo mostly.

    I have a friend who's very involved with a refugee group locally. Food stamps (at least here) does not cover non-food items, so people arrive literally with the clothes on their back. They appreciate getting soap, even if it's been used once or twice, since otherwise they have to choose between bathing and eating! I think it's a win/win. The stuff doesn't get wasted and it goes to a good cause at the same time..

    Please don't think that I don't agree with you when I tell you I had a friend who tried not doing the office gift exchange and she became known as scrooge. Personally I think you have a good idea.

    If you stay in hotels and motels small size shampoo, soaps are free. There has been some arguements that this is stealing but other say this is figured into the cost of your room. Lets not argue about it just do it the way feels right for you.
    Two freebies I like to send to our Baptist Center is baby formula and woman's hygine products.

    Thank you for these posts! They're almost all new to me.

    Here's one that isn't listed above:

    Items you get for free or nearly free with coupons or rebates are usually appreciated at your local food bank, nursing home, or woman's shelter!
