When it comes to making a donation, many people think with their wallets. They assume that those organizations only need cash, and they think that donating money is the only thing they can do. There are a number of ways in which people now donate to breast cancer awareness charities. These organizations put women in touch with doctors and give them resources that help them until they can leave the hospital with a clean bill of health. No matter what your financial situation is or how much time you have, you can still make a donation to one of those charities.
Donate Your Time
There are two ways that you can donate your time to breast cancer charities. You can either take part in an event happening in your area, or if there are no upcoming events, you can host your own. Marathons are one of the more popular types of cancer awareness groups. Participants accept donations from others for every mile or kilometer they remain in the race. You can also host an event that raises money in other ways, including a bake sale, a community rummage sale or a car wash.
Cancer charities use property in a number of different ways. One group might use the donation of land or a commercial property as a new headquarters. If you have an old car that you no longer use, you can donate that vehicle to the organization. Some even make donations in the form of soaps, shampoos, makeup and deodorants. If you are a smart shopper and take advantage of coupons, you can buy dozens of health, wellness and beauty products for a fraction of the retail cost and donate those supplies to other women.
Shop Online and Off
Shopping with partner companies is one of the best ways to give back to a breast cancer charities. These organizations partner with companies that sell everything from vacation packages to clothing. Every time that you make a purchase from one of those retailers, the retailer gives a portion of the sale back to the charity. You’ll also find a number of online sites that partner with those charities, which makes giving a donation even easier. You can feel good about making a donation to a good charity at the same time that you buy the things that you already need.
There’s a baby shower coming up or a newborn in your family or circle of friends. You want to get a gift, but as everyone knows, this isn’t always an easy task. It’s likely that your idea has been thought of by someone else and you don’t want to be the one who showed up with the same gift as someone else. So the question remains: what do you get for the baby or baby-to-be and have your gift stand out as unique? Well, here are some ideas for baby gifts that will ensure your gift will be remembered.
1. Blankets- Every newborn is going to need a blanket, and as we’re sure you already know, one blanket isn’t going to be enough. A baby’s blanket is something that needs to be comfortable, aesthetically pleasing, and give a sense of security to the child. Beautiful designs and lovely colors will make your gift blanket a hit with the new mom. The softness and warmth will be pleasing to the baby and he or she will have something wonderful to cuddle with or just be covered for the night.
2. Bath time- As cute and wonderful-smelling as babies are, they’re going to need many baths to keep them healthy and clean. You won’t know which babies are going to take to water or have difficulty adjusting, but picking out the right bathing gifts will make bath time easy and fun no matter how the baby takes to water. Toys like the classic rubber ducky are always a hit, and there are the classic colors or special themed ones to choose from. Hooded towels, washcloths, combs, manicure kits, and more can provide much-needed comfort for the new mother as well as the baby.
3. Jewelry for Kids- One might typically think that jewelry is only for girls. This is not the case at all! There are jewelry items for boys and girls, and we have a nice selection for the new baby. Bracelets, necklaces, candy bracelets, charm bracelets, and matching bracelet and necklace sets are available. The little girls can look beautiful and colorful and the little boys can have something stylish and cool to wear.
