Last Sunday for my Senior Sunday School Class of 18 -I bought grab bags for $1 each which had 20 Avon items. They were so surprised and thankful
We support an 8 yo boy from Baleze-it enables him to go to school and buy his uniforms and supports his whole family.
We grow vegs and share,
I read the news paper and pass it on to my 78 yo aunt who is on a limited budget.
I clip coupons that I will use and pass the others on to my aunt.
We do freecycle.
I do seed swap w/ others.( and plants)
I am frugal in all ways and pass on the info as soon as I learn something new.
Take clothes that my 10 yo has out grown to church and pass them on -as another member does for me.Quote:.

Some things that I do….
2. Help the church with administrative work, host functions, etc.
3. Contribute $ to St. Jude and other various health organizations.
4. Sponsor a child from Nicaragua.
5. Host a Stocking Stuffer collection to donate filled stockings to the Stockings for Kids program. (Now is a great time to stock up on stocking stuffers to donate, with back to school supplies!)
7. Donate items to Vietnam Veterans.
8. Give to friends in need.
9. Host a food drive.
10. Over-tip for great service…..Just the other day, we went to Pizza Hut, and the waitress – who was probably around 18 years old – was so incredibly pleasant. I observed her waiting on a few tables and noticed how attentive and kind she was to everyone. I decided to give her a $20 tip, basically a 100% tip – and told her that she was a VERY pleasant young lady and to stay that way!

I believe we all are able to help others no matter what our income is.
So I am asking what do you do to help others along the pathway?
Some things that I am thinking of are:
cutting coupons and laying them by the item in the grocery. (A good
project for the kids.)
Take your extra produce from your garden to the food pantries.
Give away stuff on freecycle.
Take unused band instruments to the high school band teacher.
Pay for someones groceries if you are able. That person ahead of you
in the grocery line at the discount grocery that has just a few items.
Leave the quarter in the grocery card at Aldi’s
Give your newspaper to the people next door if they don’t receive one.
Send a dollar or two to a teenager that has nothing.
Buy pencils, etc. for some kids that you know can’t aford it.
Please help me think of more things to do. Especially ones which do
not cost money. I would like to help more people.
