Maybe you’ve had a bad day and feel like the world is against you. Maybe you’re feeling lonely or negative about your future. Maybe you’re just bored, but don’t want to spend your time alone! Whatever it is that has made you sad, let me tell you that there are so many ways to help others (organizations, people) and why it will make you feel better about yourself.
Because You Care About Their Mission
–You care about their mission.
-You want to help them succeed.
-You believe in what they are doing and you want to contribute to that success by volunteering your time and talent.
Because It’s Easy To Do
Don’t worry if you lack expertise in a particular field. Many people are good at helping others simply because they’re good at doing something else. You might know how to do graphic design, or create a website, or market yourself online—and these skills can help you get involved with non-profits where your talents will be put to use. Additionally, you can volunteer your time to causes that require it. People who wish to give back and improve their community have a variety of opportunities to do so.
If none of the above options sound appealing to you, there’s one other option: donate money! This is by far the most common form of giving among Americans today, according to recent surveys from Gallup and Pew Research Center.
Because You Can Use Your Skills To Help Them Grow
When you help someone else, you can use your skills to help them grow. You can help them at their current skill level or you can help them grow their skills.
-You can help people in your organization grow their skills by teaching them something new or introducing a valuable tool that they might not have known about before.
-By educating them on something new or exposing them to a useful tool that they may not have previously known about, you may also use your skills to help individuals in other organizations.
-Or perhaps you teach yourself something new and get certified in it so that when someone asks for advice on how to solve a problem, you’re ready with helpful information!
Just Because You Want To
You don’t have to be a professional, an expert or even someone with experience to help others. You can help in many ways and in many situations. You just need to be willing and able. For example, you might have skills that are applicable for helping organizations but not necessarily as part of their official capacity as an employee. Maybe you’re good at writing and editing documents for them so they can be more effective at sharing information with the world outside their walls; maybe you’re skilled at social media management—or graphic design or data entry—and would like to give those skills away for free (if not paid).
The same goes for individuals: we all have something unique about ourselves that makes us special, so why not use our talents to help others? If you know how computers work inside out and love helping people learn how they work too (because let’s face it: most of us don’t know), then offer your services as a tutor! Or maybe there’s something else about yourself which is useful that comes naturally because it’s part of your personality or something that has been cultivated over time through practice; whatever it may be, share this knowledge with others who could benefit from learning from someone like yourself!
There Are So Many Ways To Help Others
The first reason to help others is because you care about their mission and want to see it grow. One of the best ways to do this is by offering your skills in a way that helps them achieve their goals. For example, if you’re an accountant and you know how taxes work, then offer your services Pro Bono! It’s easy!
The second reason to help others is because it takes very little time or effort on your part but can make a huge difference in someone else’s life. For example: volunteering at a shelter or soup kitchen once per week will not only benefit those who need food but also give you perspective on what other people are going through and help remind yourself of how lucky we all are for our current situations (even if they aren’t ideal).
There are so many ways to help others. You don’t have to be a saint, or even rich, to do it. Just figure out what you care about and go for it.
