Here is a unique idea to give back, with your time and not your money! Check with your local community center or library to see if they would support you using their location to hang a community giving tree.
You can do this with a paper tree and leaves on the wall, or you can make it pretty by cutting a tree branch, and placing it in a decorative container. Make pretty leaves to be clipped or hung on the tree. Place an envelope, or some sort of container with blank leaves.
Invite community members to place a need or wish that they know of on a leaf and hang on the tree. Invite the community to pick a leaf off of the tree to fulfill that wish or need. You may not make any money on this one, but you can spread the “wealth” in other ways….by taking care of others.
*Note – Some ideas would be “clean up trash on Main St., or offer rides to elderly residents who do not have their licenses, weed planters at a local park, bring a meal to a family in need, or walk the dog of a person who is ill, etc”
