5 Ways You Can Give Back This Easter And Even After

Easter is known to be the most important festival of the church as it denotes the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Friends and family usually get together at this time to celebrate the resurrection of Christ. Most importantly, people  give back or give up certain things and render help to those who need it.  Here are 5 simple ways you can help those in need:

Surprise a neighbor or family

If you know a loved one who is unwell or a friend who is just always by themselves, Easter is probably a good time to spend sometime with them. You can have them over or just pay them a visit. You can take some food and have a good time. New immigrants, Elderly neighbors and single moms or dads are great examples.

They would be glad you remembered them and you would also feel good deep within yourself.

Help the needy or elderly with their chores. Look around your neighborhood and see if there are people you can help in any way. Do they need help with grass cutting, groceries or maybe they just need someone to talk to?

 

Volunteer at a soup kitchen

There are community kitchens around us that provide food for those who cannot afford a good meal. Consider volunteering at a soup kitchen. People who go there for food  are sometimes students, aged people, young families and because of this, it is important to make the community kitchens warm and welcoming by greeting the people who come in there with a smile. Try  entering “Soup kitchen volunteer opportunities” on google to find a kitchen near you.

Donate

When you have family and guests over at Easter, encourage them to donate to charity. You can all decide on one charity. This can be a yearly tradition. You can decide to donate to the same charity every year or even a different one annually. If you can’t decide you can ballot and the highest vote wins!

Watch the kids

Give up a few hours and help a family you know take care of their kids for free! Newcomers who in most cases, have no family members around them (no grandmother/father, aunt or uncle) and parents with many children hardly have anytime for themselves since they are always busy taking care of their children and cannot afford the services of a babysitter. If you know any family in this situation, this is a good time to lend a helping hand to them.They will appreciate the kind gesture and may also reciprocate when you need that help too!

Organize your own food drive

Gather canned foods for local food banks, tell your friends and family to make contributions as well. There are many drop off points. A google search would help you locate nearby banks. One thing to keep in mind though is that when putting these items together, make healthy choices. Think about what you would love to enjoy during the holidays. Great choices would be canned beans, cranberry sauce, chicken noodle soup and evaporated milk / powdered milk.

Are there any other ideas you’d like to add to my list? I’d love to hear from you. Please leave a comment. Thank you.

  1. Wow, Great article on giving back. I quite agreed with what you stated below.

    I always like giving no matter how prudent I am and I am happy with what I am doing.

    I think I have tried all the point you touched here but I never try to surprise my neighbor. Good idea though.
    LOL

    Thanks for giving me an idea on this.

    • I feel it is important to give back and I’m glad you agree as well. Surprising a neighbor would really be a great thing to try though! Taking out time to spend with others in need is what we all need to do even if it’s just for an hour.

  2. Hello and thanks for sharing 5 ways you can give back this easter and even after. The world that we live in has so many needs, all we have to do is just stop and look around us and even though we may not be able to help everyone we can still make a big difference in the lives of those that we come in contact with. Your post is really awesome great job on your post and having such a kind heart.

    • We can definitely make a difference in any part of the world we reside. Little steps go a long way and I believe everyone should be willing to give back in their own way. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. I am reading this now and Easter is over… but what I like about your article is that we can do these things any time, just as you say. In fact I don’t hold much to the idea to only give or do at certain times of year. They are good ideas – I started tithing a few months ago and also find this very rewarding. (Not connected to any religious ritual or custom, but just because it makes me and others happy.)
    Like your title says, Planet Earth is ours and it is up to all of us to make a difference!

    • It is good to give back whenever we can and this really shouldn’t be limited to certain times during the year. Tithing is great too and very rewarding indeed! Thanks for dropping a comment.
