You’re online all day anyways, so you might as well do something kind that has the power to change the world. The best part is, these things don’t require much effort… or even putting on pants.
1- VOLUNTEER YOUR SKILL
Platforms such as Catchafire and Volunteer Match will match your skills with an organization in need. Some need help with branding, design, creating copy, marketing, etc. Basically you can volunteer with a non-profit without even getting offline.
2- GIVE A GIFT TO A COMMUNITY
3- GIVE A LOAN
Through Kiva, you can give a loan and help empower someone to better their lives. On their website you can browse the stories of those seeking loans – some to grow their business, return to school, or switch to clean energy. Then once you’ve found someone with whom you connect, click ‘lend’ and send them as little as $25. All Kiva loans are disbursed by field partners who vet and work closesly with each borrower. You can track their progress and get updated when your loan is repaid. You can then withdraw or loan that money out again to another borrower.
