Giving Back – Acts of Kindness That Go a Long Way
Life, for many of us, can become incredibly stressful, often leaving us feeling deflated - and it is because of this that we often seek to do things that make us happy; be it by making a change to our routine or going out of our way to do something special. Today, more and more people are looking to give back in their spare time, whether it’s by working alongside a charity to help raise awareness for a good cause or simply by helping a stranger on the street. Either way, there are many great ways in which we can give back; ways that can often leave us with a sense of pride and fulfilment afterwards.
Of course, every individual has their own issues that can often leave them with a new outlook on the way they live their life, but more often than not, this can be the stepping stone to could give them the motivation they need in order to realise and give back to those who need it.
You, yourself, may have been through something that has inspired you to give back to others - whether it was a change in health or a memorable event that took place in your life. 
What we often don’t realise is that there are so many different ways and causes that we can help support in this day and age that it’s often difficult to decide where to start and who to assist first. 
Volunteer With a Charity
First of all, you could look to volunteer for a charity that resonates with you and help to raise funds towards a good cause.  It may be a local charity that you opt for or a charity that goes further afield to help those currently suffering from world conflict and disaster. 
The benefits of volunteering for a good cause are endless; supporting your local community, doing something that makes you feel good, restoring faith in humanity - you could even organise a fundraising event to raise funds which will result in raising awareness for the actual campaign itself, too. 
Give a Hand to a Stranger
Amongst the many millions who are suffering from poverty in developing countries, it’s important to remember that there are many people on our very own doorstep who are suffering from homelessness, poverty and starvation, too. Should you ever find yourself walking past someone who is sleeping rough or looks like they could do with a hand, our wealth certainly won’t lessen if we shared a little out of the goodwill of our heart. Sometimes, the most spontaneous and random act of kindness can leave us with the nicest feeling. 

Donate to a Good Cause
However, if you would prefer to give back to a specific cause, then why not look to donate to a charity that resonates with you? There are countless charities that accept donations over the phone, online and in person; and it’s not always money that you can donate, it can be in the form of food, warm clothing, basic amenities and even your time. Some countries in particular could really do with your support right now; countries that have been affected by world disaster or even as a result of world conflict. Donate to a charity to support those in Burma or set up a regular donation if you wish to commit to a specific campaign. 
There are many things we can do, whether we have the convenience of time or not; whatever you decide, just know that your support can go a very long way and could inevitably mean the difference between life and death for some.
