10 Ways to Give From Home During #COVID-19
Here we go! Our first of many at-home giving ideas as you hunker down during #COVID-19
Celebrate Meatless Monday – This animal give will have you being creative in the kitchen if you regularly eat meat. Find some vegan recipes online using the ingredients you have at home and make it a meatless day!
Donate $5 to a Charity – Charities, like local businesses, need our help. They too are at risk of shutting their doors for good during this time. $5 makes a difference. Donate online and keep their doors open!
TV Shows and Video Game Give – Let someone at home choose their favorite TV show or video game. This is a nice gesture and give to a brother, sister or your parents. If you are living with a room mate, let them pick.
Extra Chores! – With everyone at home, there are bound to be more chores to do. Ask your parents for an extra chore without them having to ask you first. If you live with others who are not family members, just pick a chore yourself and do it.
Cook a New Recipe – Try a new recipe and do something different for dinner! If you love to bake, try a new cookie, pastry or pie recipe if you want to do something sweet.
Virtual Meet Ups – Have a virtual dinner party, virtual coffee or just a chat with a friend or family member. It is a great way to connect and feel less isolated when you have a visual of another person.
Support Local Businesses – As businesses are told to close their doors during #COVID-19 our online support of them is critical at this time. Give a local business a shout out online so they remain on people’s minds. If the business is doing deliveries let your online community know!
Recycle and Create! – Make art projects from the recycled materials around your home. Do this with your kids, online with children or just by yourself.
Start a Gratitude Wall! – WE normally suggest that we post gratitude notes around an office, at school or in public spaces. During #COVID-19 start your own gratitude wall at home and add to it every day. You will feel happy doing it and the energy will go out to the universe.
