Summer is right around the corner! Woo-hoo! That means backyard Bbq’s, roasting marshmallows by the fire and long days at the beach.  WAIT, which also means MORE TIME to make a difference, your schedule is not as crazy, you’re stuck in a class room all day, now you have more seconds, more minutes, more hours to creative kindness and give back! Enjoy our list of 10 ways to make a difference this summer:

  • When you’re hanging out at the beach all day, grab a trash bag and hit the sand, PICK UP TRASH AT THE BEACH.
  • Not everyone gets sunny days off, and this summer is supposed to be a record breaking hot for us, so HAND OUT POPSICLE’S TO OUTDOOR WORKERS.rtd blog1
  • At that next backyard BBQ ask all your guests to bring 1 extra canned food item then needed and instead of using it, DONATE IT.
  • We have all heard about spring cleaning, well what about summer cleaning!? CLEAN OUT YOUR CLOSETS AND DONATE OUTGROWN CLOTHES, SHOES AND TOYS.
  • Don’t forget that your mailman doesn’t have air conditioning, LEAVE AN ICE CREAM GIFT CARD FOR YOUR MAILMAN.
  • PEOPLE! people people people! CALIFORNIA is in a drought, cut your showers short AND DONATE to water.org.
  • We may be in a drought but it is extremely important to stay hydrated, HAND OUT ice cold waters to the homeless people in your area.
  • Sometimes nothings better than a delicious Starbucks ice cold coffee, next time you’re on line PAY FOR THE STRANGER BEHIND YOU.
  • rtd blog 2The bible makes it a point to be a good neighbor, HOST A FREE LEMONADE STAND.
