This time of year is when children start thinking about being good and helping other people. Follow their lead and start helping other people with these simple tips.
Many children are neglected by their parents and relatives. You can make a big difference in their lives as a mentor or a friend. Try the local Big Brothers Big Sisters affiliate to start with. You can also help grateful pets at the SPCA, particularly if you have skills with uncommon animals like reptiles or large animals. You may also have a specific animal or breed rescue in your area. You do not need to adopt or foster to help; even volunteering for a couple hours a week can make an enormous difference.
