National Make a Difference Day

Tomorrow is National Make a Difference Day!

I’m going to challenge you to use this day donate an item that will help someone else.   Be that a book your child has outgrown, a suit you no longer can wear or a pair of shoes. How about stopping by for a visit to a sick friend or a relative with a mobility problem. Sweep the leaves off of someone’s porch or sidewalk.grandma's hands photo-1454875392665-2ac2c85e8d3e

You see to someone who can’t afford to buy their child or grandchild a book this would mean the world to them.

How about the man who is just got a new job but doesn’t have a good suit to wear and since he just got hired he does not have the money to buy a new one. Maybe your old suit is just what he needs to help his family get back on their feet.

Speaking of feet. If you have a child you know how fast they grow. Imagine being in a situation where you could not afford shoes for your kids. Maybe you spend money on the kids but not on you? Your shoes are flat-out worn out. Mom’s and Dad’s often sacrifice for their kids. You can’t walk in their shoes, but they can in yours. Donate them.

Create a dress-up box for a kid in the hospital or one that is house or bed bound. Being a pirate or a ballerina for a little while will give them a little break.

Your clutter can make a difference to someone who needs it.

What do you have that you could give to someone to make a difference in his or her life?

It could just be an hour of your time. It really doesn’t take much to make a difference. Just a smile at a stranger on the street or invite someone new to join you for coffee. Introduce yourself to a neighbor.

You all have made a difference in my life. I am glad we met. Have a great day and pass it on!

Thanks Pamela

  1. We’ve just had a big clear-out, practically everything goes to the charity shop, occasionally on ebay, very little if anything goes in the bin and if it does it’s the recycling bin! Great post, good reminder. 😊👏🏻

    Did you know tomorrow is is Make a Difference Day? This is a great reminder from Pamela that what we no longer have use for can greatly benefit others, and even a small amount of our time can make a huge difference to someone who is ill, immobile, rushed off their feet with little ones or just new to the area and a bit lonely. I recently cleared out my wardrobe and most of it went to the local hospice shop, my husband repairs old bikes and donates them to the same shop or to our local Combat Stress for those ex-servicemen and women to use during their stay. Our old piano went round the corner to a new neighbour who has always wanted to learn. It doesn’t take much to bring a smile to someone’s face, what will you do to Make a Difference?

  3. What a wonderful sentiment and a fantastic opportunity to pass it on. Whether it’s unwanted clothes from a declutter, donations of food items or just shouting someone a coffee and extending some kindness, I just love this idea. Thanks for letting us know Pamela.

  4. What a lovely post.. it aligns with one of my posts from yesterday about ‘being there’ and pure coincidence as I didn’t realise it was ‘make a difference day’ today.. Some great ideas in here to ‘make a difference’ and I’ll definitely be pulling some things together as suggested for those who may just need that little helping hand.. xx
