Philanthropy is defined as the desire to promote the welfare of others. This definition is purposefully broad to include many different ways in which you can help and engage those less fortunate within your local or global community. While many of us would love to donate lots of money to worthy charitable causes, as young adults ourselves, we at Generocksity understand that student loans, rent and textbooks tend to get in the way of our abilities to give back.
But have no fear, there is a solution. Giving back with your time can be just as valuable as donating your money. For this reason Generocksity has decided to launch across all our branches, Good Deeds, an opportunity for young adults to come out on trips to help others in the community, such as by serving food at a soup kitchen, distributing blankets at a homeless shelter or making a sick child laugh at the hospital. And since we know how busy you all are, we'll coordinate everything with the charitable organizations and even arrange your transportation, all you have to do is show up!
During our Good Deeds, you will not only be able to do some good but also learn tremendously about different local charities and the marginalized populations they support. This can also be an opportunity for you to sample different forms of volunteering to discover which is the best fit for you.
