Kindness and Motivation Tips Challenge Groups to Make A

Difference

Do you belong to a group that helps make a difference in people’s

lives? Does your group struggle to find ways to help others? Tired

of the same old Bake Sale-Car Wash routine?

Below are five ideas your group can use to make a difference.

These come from the e-book,

Ways to Change the World.

1. Organize a Group or Neighborhood Yard Sale and

contribute the proceeds to a worthy cause. One neighborhood

adopted an orphanage in Thailand and worked together to send

thousands of dollars from their garage sale. In addition to the

money they sent, neighbors became closer and new friendships

were made.

2. Organize a Homeless Shelter (or other needy group)

Scavenger Hunt. You’ll need a group of people – the more, the

better.

Call the Homeless Shelter or group and ask for a list of needs

Ask them to put the things they need most or get the least of,

at the top of the list.

Assign point values to each item – with the most-needed items

getting the most point value.

Send everyone out with their lists – let them know that the

team or person that creates the most points with what they bring

in, will win the contest.

Either put up a prize yourself or ask a local restaurant if they

will provide a free meal to the winners.

Younger adults really enjoy the search for items and what a

great lesson – it’s fun to give to others!

3. Have a Toy Drive for a local Battered Women’s Shelter, Safe

House or Homeless Shelter that has kids. The toys don’t have to

be new.

Have members go around their neighborhoods

Ask each family to donate ‘gently used’ toys their kids don’t

use anymore. There will be tons – what a great way to involve kids

in the joy of giving!

4. If you play a sport, have your teammates bring in their old

equipment. Much of it will still be in good shape.

Donate it to a team in a less fortunate part of town

Find a group overseas to receive the equipment for teams in

their own country

5. A group of 50 of classmates went to their Community

Center.

They painted it, fixed the chairs, and basketball hoops.

They bought more balls and equipment with money raised

from a School Rummage and Bake Sale.

They repainted the lines on the courts and planted some

flowering plants in the front.

A few dads repaired the Jungle Gym, the slide and the swings

out back.

Then they painted all of them rainbow colors and weeded the

back lot.

They had a lot of fun and made a big difference at the same time!

And the children learned the value of caring about others.

Remember, your ability to make a difference depends on your

choice to do it. It’s just that simple. So visit
