How to Find and Choose Charity Events or A Cause to Support. How you can help, get involved & find charity events
Charity events are always happening whether that’s awareness days, donations, physical events like charity walks and galas. There are so many charity events and charities it can be hard to know where to start. People often ask which charity to support, event to attend, how to find charity events near me, how to find places to volunteer near me, how do I find a volunteer match listing to respond to or cause should I donate to? I have a problem saying No, so I really have to consider which ones I feel I can be of most value to.
How do you choose a charity to support
Firstly, how do you want to support the charity? Are you looking to donate, attend events, or volunteer? What charity cause are you passionate about? It’s normal for us to want to support the charities that are the most meaningful to us and/or that our skillsets supports.
How to find charities and charity events near me? Where can I volunteer near me?
Facebook Events | Causes
One of the easiest and fastest ways to find and filter through all of the fun charity events you can get involved in in your area is to check facebook events. Whether it’s a fitness class, beauty event, gala or sitting on your couch hitting the donate button. Facebook events lets you filter by exactly what you’re looking for by location, event type, and on the dates that you’re available.
If you’ve been googling ‘what places to volunteer near me’ another way to find a charity to support if you have more time and are able to volunteer is on Volunteer Match. I used this volunteer position listing site when I first moved to Las Vegas 8 years ago and didn’t know what was here. My very first volunteer position was as a fitness trainer at the Blind Center of Nevada which was one of the most rewarding things I’ve done.
Whatever cause it is you’re wanting to support or skill you have you can filter by and find what’s right for you and help your community the most. Whether that’s charity event planning, mentoring, food distribution, in office work or fostering children.
