Kindness is a “Special Magical Power” that we all have. The power to improve other’s lives through charity. 

I always loved the saying “One person’s trash is another person’s treasure” Just because you may not have a use for something doesn’t mean that someone else won’t. The beautiful part of the spirit of giving is that it can be more than a one-time occurrence because there are so many fun and creative ways to give back, that it becomes a habit. Reaching out to others in need is a way of life, you are using your Special Magical Powers by showing compassion and kindness towards others who are less fortunate or are going through a difficult time in their lives. 

There are so many ways to give back to others that won’t cost you a thing. 

  1. Donate clothes and toys. 

Periodically go through your closets rooting out clothes you haven’t worn in a while, which can be given to the Salvation Army or Goodwill for distribution to the needy. Select which clothes or toys you wish to donate.

  1. Help neighbors and the elderly.

Do things for the elderly that they have trouble doing for themselves. Pick up sticks in your neighbor’s yard after a big windstorm. Mow the grass for Grandma. Wash Grandpa’s car. Clean their windows in the spring. Help them plant flowers. Rake the leaves of an elderly couple. 

  1. Raise money for a charity.

5K races are so much fun! It’s a great way to get your whole family involved to get outside in the fresh air and be active, while raising money for an incredible cause.

I hope that everyone understands that the spirit of giving to others is magical, and it should be a way of life because kindness is a gift, we can all afford to give.
