Helping others with your Creative Skills
Mary Nelson Zadrozney put together an excellent article on this subject. There are many ways to help others with your talents and so often these things don’t take much time. Her article lists the organizations that can use a variety of handmade items to offer comfort to babies, children, men, women, and animals in need, along with links to their websites. Don’t have time but still want to help out? Many of these organizations can use donations of supplies. Don’t forget your local animal shelters too; many of them have a continual need for soft blankets for the animals, cage covers, etc. You can read her article here: http://www.justimaginedesigns.com/helpothersarticle.html
For those who like the challenge concept, there is also http://www.29gifts.org/ – creating positive change in the world by giving away your gifts of time, money, handmade items, smiles, kind words, etc.
