In honor of Martin Luther King Day today I like to heed MLK’s legacy and give back to others. I always choose my girlfriend’s non-profit Children’s Lifesaving Foundation – I clean out my closet and donate items to them which they in turn give to a family in need.
Splurge on yourself today – it feels soooo good to give back!!
Here are some other ideas to do today:
Send A Letter Or Care Package To The Military
Writing a letter or sending a package of goodies to a member of the military is a fun and unique way to say thank-you for serving our country.
Visit ourmilitary.mil/care-packages for more details.
Volunteer At Your Local Mission
Your local mission has several ways for you to volunteer. Whether you donate items they need, help sort donations, or feed the hungry — a couple hours of your time can make a big difference. Los Angeles Mission
Donate Books To Your Library
Have a stack of books you’ve already read? Drop them off at any one of your favorite libraries, so someone else can dive into a literary adventure.
If you’re not already in the habit of giving blood, MLK Day is a great time to start. Contact the American Red Cross and help save a life.
Share Your Dessert
Bring a smile to someone’s face at a senior center, hospital or veteran’s club today by bringing them your favorite sweet and a smile.
