Volunteering makes a difference. Even an hour of volunteer work per week can help nonprofits and community causes achieve success. Why not look for a volunteer opportunity by searching Idealist.org, Global Volunteer Network, or UN Volunteers?

No time to volunteer? Even a minor donation to GlobalGiving.org can support critical projects in communities around the world.

Or why not become a microlender via Kiva.org? Lend to a person in need, and watch as they achieve their aims and repay your loan.
