Fall is a busy time of year with back to school, new sports starting up and the fast approaching holidays. With so much on our schedules it’s easy to forget that this is the start of the season for giving back.
Instead of waiting until Thanksgiving or Christmas to do your one day of volunteering/giving back, consider starting sooner. Not only will you feel good about doing something important for your community or favorite charity but you can involve your family and friends which develops a deeper relationship in the process.
In a world that seems a little out of whack right now, one thing that can keep us all grounded is to do something (small or big) to give back and teach empathy to our kids.
Here are a couple ideas to start your own fundraiser this fall to support your favorite charity:
Host a Chili cookoff
Remember to get as creative as you want and recruit your friends, family and social network to help you so you don’t get so overwhelmed. Also, it’s a good idea to check in with the organization you plan to fundraise for to see if they can help you plan and if they have logos, marketing materials and fundraising software for you to use.
Happy Giving Back season!
