3 SIMPLE WAYS TO GIVE ON A LIMITED BUDGET WITH A BUSY LIFE

How many of us blame a lack of time or resources for why we aren't more generous­­ Here are 3 simple things you can do NOW no matter how much or little­time and money you have:

1. ­Give What You've Got: ­Take a stack of books or clothes your child no longer can use or wants AND donate them on your way to work. ­Local libraries take gently used books. ­Good Will takes gently used clothes. ­While dropping off the books, your child can sign up for the summer reading program. ­WiN/WiN!

2. ­Text a Loved One in Need: ­It takes a matter of seconds to send an encouraging text to someone who is struggling with the loss of a loved one, a job or is going through any kind of difficulty. ­You can be the difference they need that day!

3. ­Be Inconvenienced: ­Helping someone in need often means you are inconvenienced. ­Helping a coworker can mean missing your lunch break. ­Visiting a sick relative often means getting home from work late. ­Volunteering can mean giving up your much loved weekend time. ­But, in the cost benefit analysis you will always win when you choose to give no matter what. ­Keep this in mind the next time someone asks for your help or the phone rings when you are in the middle of much "busy-ness" and its someone you know is hurting.
