Little low on purchasing power this year, but still want to give back? We’ve got some ideas…
For all of us who will not be enjoying the spoils of the $500 million Powerball, we came across a Real Simple article about “How to Give When Money is Tight” and wanted to share it with you.
The article offers six strategies: Dole it out in Pieces, Tie it to An Event, Do it with Friends, Give Giving as a Gift, Save Separately, and Go for the Goods.
Here are some ideas on how to support the work of Food For The Poor using these smart tips.
Dole It Out in Pieces – Any amount helps! Through Food For The Poor, you can feed a family of four for an entire month for just $14.60.
Tie It to an Event – Through our Champion program, you can use that upcoming birthday, wedding, dinner, auction, movie night, contest, concert, etc. as an opportunity to raise funds.
Do It With Friends – Mobilize your team, co-workers, small group, church or social media friends to work toward a fundraising goal like building a house for $3,200.
Give Giving as a Gift – Check out the FFP Gift Catalog for some great gift ideas!
Save It Separately – Setting aside a portion of your income throughout the year for charitable giving is just a good idea in general 😉
Go for the Goods – Another good reminder to be aware of socially responsible companies that give back.
So no worries about what’s in the bank account (or not in the bank account) – we can all do something!
