Charity Starts At Home
Uncategorized January 11, 2018
Times are tough and charity is probably the last thing on your mind at Christmas. It’s always hard to balance giving your family and friends everything they need; especially during the months of December, January and February.
December is packed with buying food for the biggest dinner of the year, followed by presents for everybody and their uncle. Not to mention payday which falls early in December meaning January is even tougher; it’s as if by the end of February someone decided to make the month shorter just to help us out!
Every year people around the world make resolutions in January to be better people; that could be done by giving time to a charity, consuming less junk food or wasting less. The beginning of a new year brings opportunity; time to take a step in a different direction and actively do something positive.
How can I help?
It’s always difficult to consider ways in which you can help. Let’s face it, very few of us are Bill Gates, so we can’t often afford to stick our hands in our pockets and make a large donation.
What if we told you we had a way in which you could donate a lot more than you think.
Charity Really does start at home
If we told you we’re sure you or your family received at least 1 gadget over the Christmas period; we’d probably be right.
9 times out of 10 the gadget it replaced is still sat where it was last used and will probably stay there until it’s ‘tidied’ into a drawer somewhere.
Donating your old gadgets for a charitable cause can enable you to donate far more than you usually would. For example; an iPhone 5s 64gb can be donated for around £77, which is probably a lot than the change you’d donate in your pocket during a tough December and January.
Charity Can Save The Planet
Working with Gadget Drive can help you raise money for a local or personal cause. Alongside charity, it’s important to remember Gadget Drive recycles and restores gadgets to ensure they are never chucked into landfills or transported to other countries to be disposed of.
