8 Ways You Can Help Charities Without Donating Money

help charities without donating money
Many people love to dine out and shop online, but not many realize that their meals and purchases can actually benefit charities. With the holidays approaching there will be more than the usual dining out and shopping online, which means even more opportunities for everyone to use those meals and purchases for the good, to help charities without donating money.

The Original 1-800 Charity Cars, America’s #1 car donation charity, relies on the generosity of people who make both financial and vehicle donations to our car donation/distribution organization to help struggling families in need of transportation. It is because of this that we realize the importance of donations for charities, and we want to help bring awareness to ways people can help charities without donating money, such as through dining out, or shopping online to support charitable organizations.

Below is a list of helpful links you can visit to find out how you can help charities without donating money, by taking those online purchases, and dining out trips, and turn them into ways to support charities, and help people in need:
