How to Help Your Favorite Charity Without Donating Money
Charitable giving is a great way to support a cause you trust, but you don't always need to donate money to give back. This holiday season, as millions of families and children around the world struggle with hunger and poverty, your help is needed more than ever – and every little bit counts.
As a Save the Children supporter, you can help make change for children. Join us.
Here are 8 ways to give to charity without donating money:
2. Donate your birthday
Asking friends and family to make birthday donations on your behalf instead of having them purchase gifts is a simple and easy way to give back.
3. Stay informed
Many non-profits provide the opportunity to sign up for news and alerts via email. Those emails can provide additional ways to get involved like volunteer opportunities, supply drives or social posts to share. To stay up to date on Save the Children's news and stories, sign up here!
4. Donate supplies or gently used items
Local organizations often need supplies like food and clothing to continue their good work.
5. Volunteer your time
Volunteering is a great way to support your favorite charity. Volunteering opportunities can range anywhere from cleaning up the neighborhood to planting a community garden. Save the Children offers volunteer opportunities, learn about volunteering with us!
6. Write to your elected official
Writing to your elected official is a great way to make your voice heard and make change for your local community. Save the Children’s political advocacy arm – Save the Children Action Network – offers many opportunities to help raise your voice for children in need.
7. Leave a donation in your will
Including a charity contribution in your will is an easy way to give back and can be done for free. At Save the Children, we have many resources to help you leave a lasting legacy.
