$20 or Under!
$20 and Under:
Hand out food bags in a poor neighborhood. They are easy to put together and are almost never turned down. For $10-$15 you can have a nice bag to hand out. Try and buy things that you enjoy but can’t afford when money is tight. For example: Little Debbie snacks, Pasta, Coke, Pop Tarts, etc. The kids will be grateful!
Find someone who is struggling with bills due to sickness or because they are caring for someone who is sick or disabled. Send them a $20 in the mail with an encouraging Bible verse and no return address.
Invite a widow or widower that lives alone, to have dinner with you once a week, or see if you can bring dinner over. Cost $5-$10, depending on the meal.
- Pick up a bouquet of flowers to give to someone in the nursing home or someone who is going through a difficult time. A short visit and a bouquet of flowers always helps to add a little cheer, and it’s a great way to encourage someone in need!
- Know someone who could use a listening ear or some helpful words of wisdom? Offer to take them out to lunch or out for a cup of coffee. A little time and a little mocha joe can do a world of good at times.
