Paying It Forward

on Mar 01, 2016 @ 07:58 am

I have been looking for a unique way for my daughter and I to help out some of the less fortunate people in our community. I have seen people do a prom dress drive and give to those girls that could not afford one and have also heard of people buying baby hats and blankets to take into the local marternity ward at the hospital. I am looking for something unique and fun for my daughter and I to do, I would like to teach her how good it feels to make others happy and give.. All suggestions are welcome :-)

The best way (I do it a lot) is to make a complete supper or give them some homemade baked goods.I just yesterday shovelled snow for two families. It makes me feel good.

I have always been an advocate for volunteering. Lately I have been collecting unloved nail polishes from my friends and family... once I have about 20 or so, I bring them to the local women's shelter. I am hoping to find some time in the future to actually go and do manicures for the women and girls (and even boys if they want!) there in person. I know there is usually a police check involved with actually working with the women but if you want to drop off nail polish then it's usually just a matter of calling the shelter and asking if and when you can drop off the items :)

Other than that, I think it's always nice to do a spring clean up at my local park when the weather gets better and all the garbage resurfaces from under the snow.

I would love to see what other Chicks have to suggest :) Love this idea!!
