WINNIPEG, MB - This St. Patrick's Day, do more than just wear green. If you want to really increase your luck, start by helping others. Remember, what goes around comes around, so check out this list of ways to give back.
Do every day good deeds. If you want to help your community, start small. Pick up litter when you see it, give generous tips, and give spare cash to the homeless. These small deeds may go unnoticed, but they are essential to making the world a better place.
Donate to charity. Giving to non-profits is one of the simplest and most effective ways to help those in need. If you are feeling extra generous, set up a monthly gift instead of just giving once. Make sure you do lots of research on different charities, so you can choose one that really suits your interests. For example, if you are interested in women's rights, check out Beautiful World Canada, which provides education to women in sub-Saharan Africa.
Volunteer. If you are someone who is hands-on and likes to see their work in action, consider volunteering. There are tons of different ways to volunteer for non-profits, so there is bound to be something right for you. Again, find a charity that suits your interests and reach out to them about wanting to help.
