Tip: Give Time and Talent

givingpresent participle of give (Verb)

  1. Freely transfer the possession of (something) to (someone); hand over to: "they gave her water".
  2. Bestow (love, affection, or other emotional support): "his parents gave him encouragement"; "he was very giving and supportive".
 As we approach the season of giving it's important to remember that "giving" doesn't have to be financial.

There are many other ways to help:
  • bake cookies and deliver them
  • sing to someone, or a group of someones
  • volunteer to read with a group of children or elderly
  • volunteer at a soup kitchen
  • create something using your unique talents, donate it as a gift or to be auctioned or sold
  • teach
  • repair something for someone, or teach them how to do it
  • give your time, call a service agency that interests you and ask what you can do
  • pass along information of needs, use your internet networking skills to increase awareness of a need or relief effort
  • give manual labor
This is just the tip of the iceberg, I'm sure there are as many charitable outlets as there are people.

I'd love to repost this list in the future with more ideas, please add yours in the comments.
