3 Awesome & Inspirational Ideas to Help Make the World a Better Place

Sometimes it can feel like the world is full of bad news. We see it on the TV, we read negative stories in the media, and sometimes we even see examples of it with our own eyes. Whatever it may be, and however small, when you add all these negatives together, it’s easy to find yourself feeling a little jaded at times to say the least.

But what we have to remember is that the world isn’t all bad. In fact, far from it. It’s just up to us to open our eyes to all the good that exists, and get out there and try and make the world a better place ourselves. So, ‘How do I go about doing this?’, I hear you ask. Well, luckily for you, this post is here to help you answer that very question. Because we’ve come up with three awesome and inspirational ideas that will help you to look on the bright side, and make the world a better place to boot.

1. Volunteer
As a result of the economic recession, many charitable organizations have had their funding cut, and many are now struggling to continue their good work. So, if you’ve got an hour or two to spare each week, why not dedicate that time to do some volunteer work in your local community? Do a little research beforehand to see where your help would be of most benefit. If you love animals, why not see if you could help at the local dog shelter? Such places are always looking for dog walkers, and people to help out at feeding time.

If you simply don’t have the time to spare, then not to worry, because there are still ways that you can make a difference. If you have children who have outgrown their toys, you could pack them up and donate them to your local children’s hospital. Equally, animal shelters are always looking for donations of food and blankets. So, it’s a great opportunity to have a clear-out and do a good deed at the same time!

2. Litter Collecting
If you don’t mind getting your hands a little dirty, then why not get some rubber gloves on and get out there and do some litter collecting at your local park? Littering is sadly, a big problem in the US. So not only will this help to set a good example to the younger generations, but cleaning up your local park is something that will be of benefit to the whole community. It’s also a very effective way of helping to protect and preserve the local environment.

3. Charity Work
What better way is there to spend a spare afternoon than by raising funds for your favorite charity? If you’re a little stuck for fundraising ideas, then here are a few to choose from. If you’re a bit of a chatterbox, you could do a sponsored silence, or you could have a yard or bake sale. If you were feeling really brave, you could even do a sponsored head shave!  

Gandhi once said, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves...
