Favorite Little Thing: Our change can make change

Hey Girls,

It's the little things that mean the most in the world, little acts of kindness, the time and thoughts and care we give to others means something. Our goodness means something to the energies and people around us.

Not everyone can donate hundreds and thousands to charities, but no matter your income I hope in your life you have a foundation or cause in mind that touches your heart, because here's an idea for how you can give throughout the year, through your change rattling around in your handbag.

I save all my change, you know when you go run errands and you find that you're carrying around all this change in your bag and it's weighing you down, well I throw it in a cup every day and at the end of the month I have least $12, sometimes a lot more, sometimes $30 or $40 in change.

Our change can make change right? So, think about a cause that means something to your heart and at the end of the month, not just at the holidays but throughout the year, when you can, your pocket change or rattling around handbag change can help to help others.

Money isn't everything either, volunteering is also a great way to give. Grab some girlfriends and spend the day by working with a charity, volunteering at a fundraiser, reading to kids, helping out at a food bank.

Happy Holidays, remember the best gifts to give someone can simply be to listen or be there for them, to care, and your time is precious.
