Your Guide to Giving Back This Holiday Season
Social networks like Facebook have made it easier than ever to collect charitable donations in lieu of birthday and holiday gifts. While not everyone is ready to give up their holiday gift-giving entirely, more and more people are looking for opportunities to give back to their community this holiday season.
Giving back is a wonderful way to get into the holiday spirit, but with so many worthy causes, it’s hard to know where to start. If you want to get in the giving spirit this holiday season, start with these resources from TriVersity for information on the best ways to give back during the holidays.
Consider putting together a drive to collect items for those in need. This can be toys, clothing, coats, food, you name it.
