Help Poor People

Make a monetary donation. If you have more money than time, it makes sense to make a financial contribution to non-profit organizations that help poor people. You can find organizations that help all kinds of people--from the people in your neighborhood to people in countries around the world. Volunteer your time. If you still want to make a difference, but simply don't have any money to spare, you can help the poor through volunteering. Find an organization that needs manpower. You could help build a house for a needy family, help make meals in a soup kitchen or work with homeless youth. If you find an organization that fits with your interests, you'll be more likely to stick with it. Train people for a new career. If you have specialized skills, take the time to train people that may be interested in the same career. Basic computer skills, for example, could really help someone out. If you own a business, consider participating in a program that aims to place poor people in good jobs. By hiring people, you are helping them to help themselves.
