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. One small act of kindness per day can make a huge impact on the world. This week, we encourage you to treat everyone with respect. Learn the names of your office/school security guard, and other people you see every day. Greet them by name. These acts of kindness are so easy, and are contagious!

Homelessness. Next week is national Hunger and Homelessness awareness week. In New York City and beyond, homelessness is an American epidemic. This week, we highlighted not only the issue itself, but also different ways you can create a positive impact. Check out this week's articles and make a plan to give back.

For the chance to have your Give As You Live story featured, send us an email or message us on Facebook or Instagram!
