Give Your Help

Everyone Needs Help

Everyone has problems and needs. It doesn’t matter who they are or what their status is. You should continually look for ways that you can help people. Take action when you have discovered a need that you know you should help with.

Do not just tell the person to let you know if you can help. Most people will not ask for help. Think about ways that you can help that person. Offer to do specific things and let them know that it would mean a great deal to you if you could do it for them.

Some Ways You Can Help Others

  • Cook and take meals to families when one of them is sick.
  • Take care of the children of a family for free just to give the parent(s) some time to do something they want to do.
  • Mow and trim a neighbor’s lawn.
  • Help clean someone’s house.
  • Pick up lunch for a friend or coworker.
  • Listen to someone that needs to talk. Keep the conversation confidential!
  • Loan your car or give a ride to someone when their car breaks down and is being repaired.
  • Take care of pets, plants, mail and newspapers of that person is away from home.
  • Pray for them and with them about their need.

Things to Consider When Offering to Help

If you make a commitment to do something, then do it! You have only hurt things more when you build the person’s expectations up only to be disappointed.

Help the person with a heart of love. You should not do it out of a sense of obligation or desire to get something out of it for yourself.

Offer to help in a specific way. Do not require the person to come to you and ask for help.

I love receiving Everyday Giving. As the President of a national health agency local chapter, Everyday Giving lifts me out of my traditional way of thinking and reminds me there are many ways to contribute and be giving. It also reminds me of the opportunities I have outside of my work to make a difference.
