Kindness Revolution Day 21: Donate to Your Favorite Charity

Every month I see the advertisement for a charitable organization called Smile Train in one of the magazines I read.† The organization provides surgery to children who have been born with birth defects and cleft palate.† Let’s face it:† growing up with facial disfigurement of any kind must be difficult.† Children (and adults for that matter) can be cruel.† It seems to me that a simple surgical procedure for many of these children may transform the way they are treated and possibly the way they feel about themselves.† I keep thinking that I’d like to donate to this organization so today’s the day.

If you have a soft spot in your heart for a charitable organization, consider donating to them.† It doesn’t have to be money if you don’t have much.† You can also donate your time, some furniture or clothing you’re not using, or something completely different.† If you have ideas, please share them with other Kindness Revolution participants below.

If youíre just joining us for the Kindness Revolution, Iím trying to spread kindness in the world by giving 29 gifts in 29 days, inspired by the book 29 Gifts.† And, Iím asking you to join me.† If youíre just tuning in, check out the first blog in this series.† And, don’t forget that it’s never too late to join the Kindness Revolution.† Start today!

And, donít forget to add your comments to my blog because, with the help of the kind people at Care2.com, Iíll be giving away more free copies of my books† next Saturday!† Winners will be selected from the comments!

On Friday donated two bags to a charity shop. Helps me by getting rid of things, helps someone who needs what we have donated and it helps the earth by recycling.

There are all sorts of ways you can help: I'm often skint, but give blood, take library books to a housebound man, take stuff (mine and also things passed on by others) to charity shops, and act as a trustee for a local community centre. And, of course, when I can, I give money. Buying things at charity shops is also a way of contributing.

I have several charities I donate to throughout the year, charities for people and for animals.
