Understand Who Represents You

Help the world by being politically focused. Learn about your representatives in Congress. Their stance on every issue should be your concern. Write or call your representatives if you notice problems occurring at the state or federal level. In a democracy, it's your duty to question the authority. Applaud the representatives when they're performing well, but also hold them accountable when necessary. Today's policies mold your future successes. They also impact charities and needy people around the world.

Align Yourself With Charitable Organizations

There are thousands of charities in the world. Unfortunately, some of these charities are scams to take in funds for personal gain. Don't let this fact stop you from helping a truly valuable charity. Research various charities in your area. Follow your interests, such as religion or animals, to find that perfect charity. After verifying their legitimacy, consider a visit to a meeting or other gathering. Furthering a cause, including democracy, is a noble challenge for any passionate individual.

Recycle Every Conceivable Item

Helping one or two charities is a goal achieved, but there's even more that you can do for the world. Take a look around your home. Most people have a lot of extra items that they don't really need. Recycle or donate any items that aren't being used. Ideally, give away any items that haven't been used in the past year. Someone else benefits from your generosity while you free up room in the home.

Give Your Time

You may not have a lot of money to give, but time is ample. Nearly every program, including a National Endowment for Democracy business, needs volunteers. They cannot possibly pay every person who helps out. They simply need volunteers to help their cause. Ask about any opportunities arising during your free time. Passing out blankets, participating in a fundraiser and other helpful actions are always welcome. You benefit from these actions too. When you fill your heart with joy, both the charity and your mind improve in leaps and bounds.

Adopt Through Reputable Charities

At some point in life, it may be difficult to help on a personal level. Health ailments, personal responsibilities and other challenges simply make the process impossible. You can still help by adopting a wild animal, needy child or region around the world. These adoptions aren't typical "take home" situations. The adoption is merely financial with a fixed fee charged each month. These contributions do make a difference so that elephants remain safe from poachers or children receive vaccinations in their war-torn countries.

If you have children, be their role model by working with various charities. Your actions will inspire them to help many programs as they grow up, including entities within the National Endowment for Democracy. Be proactive today because your work does make a difference.
