Sharing the Love

One of the things that has popped up a little bit on my blog over the past 8 months has been the idea of Charity. I have always supported them, and eventually I'd really like to end up working for one so I wanted to do a little post today. Helping out those in need, even volunteering for that afternoon, or donating that £3 really does make all the difference. One of the best ways to make yourself, and others happy, is to make someone else happy.


I'd really like to do more for other people and charities, and I'd love to hear more about what other people do for them. I think its inspiring to hear about how other people have helped, so I thought I would start a hashtag called #ShareTheLove for people to write about experiences they have had with others, where others have helped them or they have helped others. With all the horrible things happening in the world at the moment, it would be nice to spread some positivity instead.

My little input will be that recently I helped my Dad at the Lunch Club some wonderful people run down at his church. A team run this event on the third wednesday every month, and they are all so kind. They invite some of the elderly people in our village to have a dinner and spend some time with other people. It was so touching to be able to volunteer here. The people were all lovely, and it clearly meant alot for them to be able to come and eat with some other people, especially as many of them don't get the chance to go out often at all.

If you do end up doing a post about your experiences with charities or helping other people, please do link me to it in the comments box below! Remember to use #ShareTheLove!

What have you done to help others recently? Do you think charities are important?
