Tomorrow is Donate a Day’s Wages to Charity Day!

Donate a Day's Wages to Charity Day!

Donate a Day’s Wages to Charity Day is a great reminder of the power of giving back.

Tomorrow isn’t just any other day in May. It’s Donate a Day’s Wages to Charity Day. On the second Wednesday of each May, we’re encouraged to – you guessed it – donate a day’s wages to charity.

Giving just one day’s pay can have life changing repercussions for those in need. One day of pay here in the US is often enough to cover basic living expenses for weeks, if not months, for families in underdeveloped nations, as well as towards our own non-profits in the United States.

If some of us can’t give up a day of pay, don’t worry! There are other ways to get involved. Consider volunteering after work, or perhaps checking out options in our communities to see if there are any sponsored opportunities to make a difference (e.g. a 5k for charity).

Giving back helps others and ourselves. Thinking about others takes the focus off of our own challenges and struggles, and is scientifically shown to make us happier!

Having served on numerous Boards over the decades, it hasn’t always been possible for me to donate funds.  But there is an adage, be it time, treasure, or talent, giving comes in all different forms.  Mentoring a youngster, rolling up our sleeves to pick up trash in our parks or our beaches.  Serving meals in a shelter.  Reading to a child who is not at home for domestic reasons.  These are just a few examples of giving back, if we are unable to do so monetarily.

How will you get involved in Donate a Day’s Wages to Charity Day tomorrow? Let The Maria Sanchez Show know in the comments. We want to join you!
