  37. I volunteer in various ways for a local animal charity.

  38. I plan to take all of my clothes that i dont want and my sons clothes that hes grown out of and some of his toys down to the battered womens shelter and donate it to them. I also want to make little food/gift bags and give them to some of the women down there. I think its so worth it to see the look on their faces and to know how excited they are to have someone who cares.

  39. I get involved with a lot of charities at work because I work with a lot of charitable ladies! Most recently, a friend of mine helped put together a charity that requested any toiletries, sample toiletries, memo pads and purses so that she could put together a “purse stuffing party” in order to hand out the purses out at a homeless shelter in Detroit. I like assisting in charities that are women oriented. I plan on getting more involved in domestic violence charity fundraisers this year as, where I work, I see a lot of it and it really hits the heart.

  40. I follow on twitter – @ktkatherine

  41. TOMS Shoes is a great company! I blogged about them a long time ago, and they sent me their DVD. I actually donated it to my library, in the hopes that other people will learn about their great work too!

    I just graduated from graduate school with a MA in International Human Rights, just this past week actually. It is my hope to get a job in human rights, particularly in poverty alleviation, which I would consider a great contribution to my community or whatever community I get the chance to serve.

  42. I always help around my community. It may be as simple as raking leaves for an elder, or helping serve dinners at church or smoothies to little kids. But, it could also be as big as putting on a church camp for the local kids. I enjoy helping others. I feel like It’s not only my duty but that it’s something that will bring so much happiness to not only the people but me, knowing that I helped them in a way. 🙂

  45. We donate to the local food bank and buy gifts for the angel tree.

  46. I bake cakes and desserts for a local homeless shelter every year at Thanksgiving and Christmas

  48. my daughter volunteers calling bingo at an old fols home and I drive her every week.

  49. Stephanie Craver

    I know that it doesn’t seem as helpful as others, but I volunteer at this place called Rock City. They hold musical events there and such. Music is very important to me and a lot of other kids who go to these shows. Without these events (which are very safe), who knows what I’d be doing right now. I could be on the streets doing things that I would regret later. Or have a death that is much too early for me. So I volunteer an help there for myself and other kids.

    I also love children, so I volunteer at the Boys & Girls club and play with kids, clean after them, and it’s a lot of fun.

    I don’t know if it counts, but my family and I are also sending some stuff to the troops for Christmas. I’m pretty sure it’s gonna be a tradition.

  50. donating to a family at work [email protected]
