You don't need money to be able to help others, sometimes it'd little kind gestures which mean the most to people! Signing up as a listener on 7 Cups of Tea is a great way to help people, it's free, very rewarding and you can do it for as little or as long as you're able to! :)
The two simple things I do to help people are to smile often and hand out kindness cards. Sometimes a simple smile changes a person's entire state of being.
You can help people by volunteering at charities. That costs nothing, and depending on the cause can help a lot of people. You can also become a listener here and help people who come on the website to talk.
Through volunteering, or fun sites like 7cups, you can help people locally or from all around the world. By doing a quick search for your community's food banks or other community services and signing up to help out, you can make a huge difference in helping the people around you, and it won't cost a thing!
By giving them money, yes? I don't see why I need all 100 characters for this simple, silly question...
I know I could help people without money but donating clothing, blankets, socks, and shoes whenever I can. I could either give them money for food or better yet, buy them groceries, which can last. I could also send them to a shelter near by so they have a place to stay or even just take a shower. Sometimes just talking to them, listening yo their stories can help brighten their day.
This site is 100% free, volunteer programmes, and helping the environment by picking up litter are all ways you can improve people's lives
the simple reply is to give them money but it may not be that simple. i would have you rather give them food or water or even a job if you can do it.
Well, it would depend on how in debt they are, setting up a fundraiser or charity fund for them might help, :)
You can refer them to goverment aid or maybe talk to them about getting a job And what they like to do to help them choose a carrer path
You could maybe try donating to a charity or something that could help them beneficially. That's what I would do.
Try finding a local charity, and volunteering/donating. There might be a food bank near you where you can donate food to the less fortunate.
All I can say to that is an ear is priceless... I personally would rather someone take the time to sit, listen and encourage me
Give them your time, sometimes all people want are time, human interaction. voulenteer your time to places that's looking for people to voulenteer. babysit in your community.
By providing a listening ear. Sometimes, intangible help will have a longer lasting impact than tangible ones - help by contributing time, staying committed to the conversation, and be constructive & sensitive when talking to others! Intangible service may take time to bear its fruits of labour, but in the long run, it's definitely more beneficial x
Simply volunteering your time or other resources are just as helpful. Money isn't the one and only requirement to help others. There are many opportunities, like here on 7 cups, to volunteer your time :)
Joining a site like this is a great way to start, as well as any other volunteer work you can do online or in your community.
Offer them your time, time is more precious than money! Especially so, because it is so selfless to give money, but even more profoundly selfless to give your time.
There are many ways to volunteer resources such as old clothes, time and.or money. There is almost always some sort of charity group in every area but if there isn't, raising awareness for a cause is a great way to help them. On a day to day basis there are things you can do if you want to help a specific person who is having financial difficulties, whether it's helping them find a job or even giving them something to do, hiring them. As the recipient of charity I can tell you that the feeling isn't great when someone just hands you something out of pity, many people are hungry for the opportunity to earn the money through hard work.
Money, although helpful, is not the be all and end all of life. Without money you can still impact people's lives in a positive way. Start by seeking out volunteer opportunities. Find your strengths and don't be afraid to give something new a try.
you can give away all the clothes you don't need anymore, you can even make a small association to collect what people don't need anymore and give them away to poor people :)
Find out the reason why they don't have - if they gamble, that's another story, or if they are in dept - different, if they are unemployed. For every situation different story.
Simply smile to people around you and greet them politely. Try to be nice to everyone and cheer up people around. Listen to them without judging when they needed someone to talk to. These are all free!
Be kind. It often costs nothing except maybe some of your time, and it can mean the world to someone.
In any way you can. Donate as much or as little as you can to charities - smaller organisations are more trustworthy - and make a change in your own way.
Pass them resource links, such as links to food pantry's and what not, or churches that may offer support for people without money
teach them how to fish. then teach them to sell the fish they catch and pay you a hefty commission. now you're helping people to help you help them.
The best way to help a person without money is to provide a support system, and a shoulder to cry on.
There are many things that money is not involved like being there for some one or listening to some one. Giving support to someone is also a big help. It might not mean much to you but it means a great deal to the person you have helped.
lets imagine we are going to work, and on the way we see a poor man on the side of the sidewalk and we feel we want to help him but we don't have any money in our pocket, so instead we start talking to him, listening to him. after a while maybe we sit beside him on the sidewalk even that its dirty, I think he would prefare that talk more that 2oo dolars.
