Giving Back and Volunteering
I know as a personal finance podcast we go over how you use money to pay the bills and take care of our loved ones, which are good things to keep an eye on, but I also believe life is about more.
Giving back to others, to the community fills another need. And yes sometimes that means donating money to charity and causes that matter to us.
But sometimes our giving becomes more personal and involved with volunteering.
There are so many wonderful opportunities out there where you can directly give and participate in. Finding that connection can incredibly fulfilling and meaningful.
But what if there isn’t that perfect fit. What do you then?
Starting a Non-Profit
For some who have the time, energy, and passion, the answer is start a non-profit that addresses those specific needs in the community and aligns with their values.
In this episode, Dorethia Kelly joins us to discuss:
- how she got into the world of non-profits and how you can too
- she also has tips for those looking to start their own
- she’ll go over the pitfalls to avoid
So if your heart is moving you to get out there and do more, I hope this episode helps.
