‘Tis the season to be giving. With Thanksgiving just around the corner, many people seek out volunteering. Some of us need an extra push to get off the couch and start giving. For those of us, here are 5 reasons to volunteer and 5 ways KindCause can help you give back.
5 Reasons to Give
Many people wish they knew how to say thank you for their blessings. Giving back by volunteering is one way to say thanks and to pay it forward.
You really can make a difference.
Things are improving in the world. Progress has been made in all 17 of the United Nation’s sustainable development goals, so it is probable for the trend to continue. This improvement in the world confirms that philanthropic efforts will improve things in the world.
Volunteering improves mental health.
Research shows that volunteering has positive psychological effects. In one study, those who volunteered once a month reported better mental health than participants who volunteered infrequently or not at all. In the current mental health decline associated with COVID-19, this benefit of volunteering is especially important.
To promote a cause.
Do you wish something was better in your community or the world? You can join with an organization that aligns with that cause. A great place to look for nonprofits is greatnonprofits.org/.
Learn new skills.
Nonprofits often train individuals, so they can be successful volunteers. Training results in volunteers gaining new skills. These skills can aid in personal and career development.
