Give As You Live!
Each week we provide you with simple ways to give. Participating in these small acts of giving allows you to reflect on your philanthropic behavior and engage more regularly with Locus.
Perform a Random Act of Kindness. A small act of kindness on your part can mean the absolute world to someone else. This week, we ask that you take time to think about ways you can help homeless community. Often left feeling dehumanized, a simple act of kindness can be the greatest source of change for those most in need. Some suggestions include: giving water, warm food and clean socks to homeless shelters or to individuals.
The Importance of Donating Blood Although many don't realize it, one of the most effective ways to give back is by donating blood. In fact, a single blood donation can save up to three lives. Blood donations are needed every single day, and only 37% of the population is eligible to donate. Click Here to find out if you're eligible and where to donate!
