With all the devastation that is going on in the world I have been pondering over + over how I can help, in any way. I was having a conversation with my friend + I was telling her how I wanted to help but just couldn’t have to. And she was telling me how donating money isn’t the only way to help. It turned into a whole conversation about different ways to help. Then I had the idea to put all the ways to help others after devastaion that we talked about into a blog post that I could keep updating. This is that post. If you have more ways/idea please let me know in the comments! I look forward to reading them + adding them to the post!
#1. PRAY– To me, this is the most important one. There is so much power in prayer! And I truly believe it works + miracles happen! If this is the only thing you can do, please know that it is just as important + useful as anything else!
#2. DONATE [Money, Time, Unused Goods etc]– There are so many charities + GoFundMe’s that honestly its overwhelming sometimes. It hurts my heart to see how many people are suffering + in need. But I want to remind you that you don’t have to only donate money. You can donate your time, clothing, unused goods etc. People are in need of everything so anything you can donate will be so appreciated it!!
#3. SUPPORT LOCAL BUSINESSES’ FUNDRAISERS– [I wrote this back when Ukraine was first attacked but the premise still applies] A local bakery near me did a fundraiser this past weekend that sales from their cupcakes that were decorated blue + yellow, the proceeds or part of went to helping Ukraine. I thought that was awesome! You get a treat + you’re helping not only Ukraine but a local business. So many businesses are doing that for so many amazing causes!
#4. SHARE WHAT YOU FIND!- Sharing is caring ha! Social Media + word of mouth are great tools [if used correctly] to share knowledge + ways to help others! Even if its just promoting it! If you find a great organization, share it so more people can learn about it + support it ya know?
#5. EDUCATE YOURSELF – With the recent barbaric events that happened in the Middle East, I think its a good idea to educate yourself on the history of the land, the people etc because making any comments when taking a side. The land in question has been inhabited by people for thousands of years, therefore their history is vast + complex. I’m not here to tell you which side to pick, if any. I’m only here to say to educate yourself before speaking passionately to others about it or making harsh comments to others who have different opinions.
#6. BE KIND TO OTHERS! -There are so many voices in the world these days its defining. Some louder than others. But no matter what someone’s opinion + view points are, we all need to be kind to each other. We can all agree to disagree + move on. Especially on social media where you don’t know the person personally. The hateful, harsh, mean comments have to stop! They don’t help anything, they just make things worse. The world has enough hate + evil in it. Let’s not add more, instead lets add love + kindness into the world! It needs it!
I know I only listed 6 ways but each of those ways are so powerful + so helpful! Please please please, if you know or have any other ways to help, let me know in the comments below + I’ll add them to the list!!!
