If you’ve faced any problems in your life and found a solution that has helped you out of your tough time, very often you want to give something back.
As a young parent with a non-sleeping baby maybe you got some great advice or maybe you were in need of some help getting a job and a charity stepped in to help you back into employment. Whatever the case, sometimes it’s great to pay forward all the kind favors that have been done for you. We bring you some random acts of kindness that can make the world a better place for everyone.
If you feel passionately about a cause, maybe it’s time to put your money where your mouth is and make a donation. It might be that you’re not in a position to donate great sums of money so why not start today by setting up a Direct Debit to a charity of your choice for just a few dollars a month. These small but regular acts of generosity soon mount up and create a regular income stream for charities when they need it most.
Pay it forward…in coffee
Has anyone ever done you a real favor and expected nothing back in return? Do you think you could do the same? Next time you’re buying a coffee in a café, why not pay that favor forward and buy a coffee for the student in the queue or the older person behind you? These kinds of favors transform society. They change how people think about others. They put a smile on someone’s face and they might just be inspired to pay it forward again to someone else.

Make a Will
No one wants to think about it but by leaving a donation to a charity in your Will you will be leaving more than money, you’ll be leaving a legacy of kindness and generosity.
Perhaps you just want to help. Why not make a conscious decision to sign up to a charity that’s looking for help? As well as giving back to your community, like Elan Shukartsi, you’ll get to meet some like-minded people and see first-hand the difference volunteering just a few hours of your week can make.
You probably do have a charity or a cause that you feel passionate about and at one time in your life, you probably have had someone show kindness for no real reason other than kindness itself. It’s time for all of us to give something back so let’s pay it forward with some random acts of kindness or spend some time helping out at an animal shelter or charity clothes shop.
You won’t regret starting or that deep sense of satisfaction you’ll get from turning your down time into time spent helping other people. If you have a little extra cash, as well as time, find a charity that’s become close to your heart and set up that payment scheme today. Give back something and receive a whole lot more all over again.
