Charity is not always about serving food in a soup kitchen or donating bags of gently used clothing. If you want to spread joy to members of your community while having fun, the following ideas will inspire you.
Give Kids a Safe Place to Play
You can build a playground with affordable, basic play equipment or go all out and create a unique play space that is fun even for adults. Simple projects may include a few swings and slides with soft grass or mulch underneath while more substantial projects may include climbing walls and obstacle course features. The sky is the limit when planning your park.
Teach a Class
Whether you are a black belt in karate or enjoy scrapbooking, there are members of your community who want to learn those things but cannot afford classes. Offer classes for free, and you will have fun while influencing others in a positive manner.
Throw a Fashion Show
How many little girls in your community dream of modeling? You can give them the opportunity of a lifetime by holding a fashion show featuring models pulled from the local streets. Make it a fundraiser and encourage teenagers and young adults in the area to spread the word. A small entry fee will bring in a substantial donation for a designated charity while giving your neighbors an enjoyable, safe evening or afternoon out.
Can you think of other fun ways to contribute to your community? Put those ideas into action and see what difference it makes for your life.
