Giving to children’s charities and charitable giving funds is probably one of the most fulfilling things that you can do. You may be ready to give, but you may also have the problem of indecisiveness. So many charity gifts and options exist that it can be confusing knowing what to do and who should receive your amazing offering. The following are five ideas that you can use when you make your choice of action:
1. General Children’s Charities
One way that you can go if you’re not quite sure who to send your money to is the way of general children’s charities. You can make a monthly donation to a group that handles collective charities. These groups distribute the money to various tasks such as education, research and medical attention.
2. Disability Charities
A disability charity is a more focused way to give your donation. There’s nothing wrong with being a person who wants to know where your donation is going and ensure that the company is using it for the intended purpose. Disability charities tend to focus on a single disability such as muscular dystrophy or multiple sclerosis. They take the donations that people give and put them toward children who have such sicknesses. Your monthly donation goes to their hospital care and things like that.
3. Struggling Child Sponsorship
You can also donate to struggling child sponsorships. In other words, you can choose to donate monthly to a specific child in another country or a specific child in your own country. Some organizations try to make other people’s lives better by helping them fix up their homes and villages. You can choose to be a part of that experience.
4. Church Donations
If there’s a specific church that you like, you can give your donation to that particular church. They will distribute the funds and then put them toward a specific cause. If you trust your church leaders, then you can donate each month to the cause that they have in mind. If you have any reservations about such a fund, then you may want to choose another way to donate, which is okay.
5. Personal Donations and Charitable Gifts
Finally, you could choose to do personal donations and charitable gifts. Personal donations are donations that you select for one specific person. For example, you may know of someone who is in the hospital or someone who has lost a loved one. You may desire to personally give that person a cash donation or buy something like a stuffed animal, clothing, groceries and so forth.
It doesn’t matter how you choose to give as long as you do it and the effort comes from your heart. Review the previously mentioned choices and see if you can connect with one of the suggestions. There is more information available at the Christian Blind Mission website.
