$7 on the 7th

Filed under: 7 on the 7th — by Jamswife @ 12:41 am

Giving back is easy.  It doesn’t have to be big or grand, just something to help others.  My family has always been involved in supporting the community in some way.  From participating in church outreach programs, to giving to the food bank all year round.  No matter how much or little we had I was taught that you always have something to give, and it doesn’t always have to be money, your time is valuable too. 

That is one reason why I LOVE the idea of $7 on the 7th, which I came across from the Liz Logelin Foundation.  Such a sweet and simple idea, donate $7 on the 7th of the month.  WIll you really miss the $7?  What is that, a couple of coffees, a lunch out.  So easy to give, and you may not think that $7 makes a difference, but if I give $7, and then a few more people give $7, and then a few more, it can make a difference.  For me it is the small things that count, and being able to give $7 is something I can do.

This month my $7 is going to the Liz Logelin Foundation.  I think I will alternate between different charities each month, as I have many causes which are close to my heart.  What is your favorite way to give back?
