The Gift Of Giving Back
The best gift anyone can give is the gift of giving back. Throughout December you may have faced a number of easy ways to give back, donating to homeless shelters, Christmas Jumper Day or gifting presents to those less fortunate. If you’re looking to give back on Christmas Day, volunteering at a homeless shelter is a great way to do so. It is also important now more than ever to consider the elderly in your community who may spend Christmas Day alone or spend the whole season lonely.
You can find out more on ways you can help at Crisis - https://www.crisis.org.uk/get-involved/volunteer/volunteer-for-crisis-at-christmas/ and Age Uk - https://www.ageuk.org.uk/get-involved/volunteer/. Taking this mind set of giving back through to the New Year however, is the best way to make an impact.
