Giving back without spending

When we think about giving back or helping others; the first thing that comes to mind is “I have to give money?” Well, there are other ways to help make a difference without having to donate money.

Things you can do:

  • Volunteer
  • Cook for someone
  • Mentor a student if you are good at a subject
  • Be a Positive Big brother or Big Sister to a younger person
  • Volunteer at your local animal shelter
  • Assist Seniors
  • Setup a walkathon or run for a cause like cancer


  • Work with your Village, Town or City Council to plant flowers in parks.
  • Spend some time at schools during pickup and drop-off times to ensure the safety of the students.
  • Spend some time at your local Elderly Home.
  • Help a senior with grocery shopping, cleaning, or lending a helping hand in the kitchen can be a huge support for homebound seniors.
  • Whether you’re looking to work with kids, support the arts, or help the elderly, sign up and get in touch with a nearby nonprofit that needs your help.
  • Consider cooking up meals, deliver meals, assemble the meal kits.
  • Mentor a student, volunteer to become a team leader, writing coach, SAT tutor, or critical thinking advisor, among other options.
  • Walk dogs, care for kitties, and ultimately make a difference in many animals’ lives.
