Feel good

Giving to charity is immensely satisfying.

In a world that seems increasingly bleak, it feels good to do something charitable just for the sake of making the world a better place. If you are wealthy or a small business owner, donating to charitable causes can be a great tax write-off as well.

There are all sorts of charities out there that need your donations. But donating to charity doesn’t have to mean opening your wallet. There are thousands of organizations who are happy just to have your time as a volunteer. There are also many charities that are looking for different sorts of donations. Organizations such as Goodwill, the Salvation Army, and Planet Aid are always looking for used clothing, shoes, and winter jackets for families in need.

The new trend in travel is a combination of a vacation and volunteering. Known

as voluntourism, this hot new concept allows people to use their vacations at home and abroad to do a little good. — edubook.com
