It’s Cyber Monday, a day filled with all kinds of deals online. Instead of filling up someone’s closet or junk drawer with impersonal gifts, consider making a gift with real impact – food, clothing, housing, medical care and other necessities for a child in need.
Non-profits, like The Settlement Home, depend on your contributions, both financial and donated items, to serve their clients and fulfill their mission.
One way to help non-profits through a busy end of year, is through donations. I read a great article on DailyWorth about ways to liven up online donations. Donating online is simple and quick, and it allows you to be the hub for donations. You don’t have to made the donation yourself, you can help recruit donations from those you know. This adds up and provides non-profits with much needed support. In the article, experts recommend promoting your cause on social media sites and setting up regular automatic contributions.
The article also quotes the Center on Philanthropy, which says that the average person makes 24% of their annual donations between Thanksgiving and New Year’s.
