Let’s All Participate this National Give Something Away Day

Let’s learn how we can balance work, our personal lives, and philanthropy on National Give Something Away Day.

Today is National Give Something Away Day.  As the name suggests, this day is dedicated to sharing our good fortune with others who may not be as blessed as we are.  Often, we tend to get so caught up with our responsibilities that we forget to serve others in our communities.  On this day, we’d like to suggest to take a step back, consider taking a moment to acknowledge with gratitude that what we do have and dedicate ourselves to helping others.  Here are some of the simple things that we can do to honor this National Give Something Away Day.

  • The best adage is to give of our time, our talent, or our treasure. Any way you look at it, it’s a win/win/win.
  • On this day we can give our time. The simple act of volunteering can make a huge impact on the life of an individual, a community, or a cause.
  • We can donate gently used clothing, shoes, glasses, and so on. The clothes that we no longer want or need, could be a valuable gift to someone in need.
  • We can donate hygiene and basic care products. Things like toothbrushes, shampoo, soap, feminine hygiene products, can go a long way toward improving the quality of someone’s life.
  • We can donate school supplies such as notebooks, pencils, pens, coloring materials, and backpacks. Donations such as these can serve underprivileged students and help to ensure that they receive the educational experience that they deserve.
  • We can donate non-perishable food items to food banks or homeless shelters to ensure that no one goes hungry.
  • As always, we can donate money to a charity or organization that serves those in need. A monetary donation doesn’t need to be huge to make a difference.  Let’s give what we can to help make the world a friendlier place.

These are some of the simple ways that we can celebrate National Give Something Away Day.  We at The Maria Sanchez Show hope you will join us as we give back to those in need.  Don’t forget to check out our latest program, Shadow Politics with Senator Michael D. Brown.  Tune in on Sundays at 4:00 p.m. PDT/7:00 p.m. EDT.
