National Make a Difference Day

Did you know tomorrow is is Make a Difference Day? This is a great reminder from Pamela that what we no longer have use for can greatly benefit others, and even a small amount of our time can make a huge difference to someone who is ill, immobile, rushed off their feet with little ones or just new to the area and a bit lonely. I recently cleared out my wardrobe and most of it went to the local hospice shop, my husband repairs old bikes and donates them to the same shop or to our local Combat Stress for those ex-servicemen and women to use during their stay. Our old piano went round the corner to a new neighbour who has always wanted to learn. It doesn’t take much to bring a smile to someone’s face, what will you do to Make a Difference?

Tomorrow is National Make a Difference Day!

I’m going to challenge you to use this day donate an item that will help someone else.   Be that a book your child has outgrown, a suit you no longer can wear or a pair of shoes. How about stopping by for a visit to a sick friend or a relative with a mobility problem. Sweep the leaves off of someone’s porch or sidewalk.grandma's hands photo-1454875392665-2ac2c85e8d3e

You see to someone who can’t afford to buy their child or grandchild a book this would mean the world to them.

How about the man who is just got a new job but doesn’t have a good suit to wear and since he just got hired he does not have the money to buy a new one. Maybe your old suit is just what he needs to help his family get back on their feet.

Speaking of feet…

  1. I tend to be the one called on to fetch peoples prescriptions from the chemist – and I’m glad to help and be trusted that way. I also give (and buy *ahem*) at charity shops. The above comment struck a note in that we shouldn’t need a special day to help someone out, but everyone’s lives are so busy these days, that a gentle nudge doesn’t go amiss. If everyone did just one little thing a day, the world would be a grander place. 🙂

    I will look for something I can do with my wife and kids tomorrow… (I know that I shouldn’t need a special day to do this… but it is nice to have the little extra reminder/incentive )

    1. What a lovely thing to say, thank you, Adam😊 Yes, sometimes we need a little prod when we’re in the midst of all that stuff, it is good to be reminded that there are people worse off than ourselves who could do with a little help. Thank you for taking up the challenge 😊🙌🏻
