Charity CHAMPs – get involved with microphilanthropy now!


Ways to give back that aren’t so “micro”, but still easy and fun by sylvng

Since Charity CHAMPS is about microphilanthropy, this blog has featured many ways for you to give back with a few spare minutes or dollars – from sending free e-cards to save 1 square footage of rainforest to playing trivia games to donate rice to the hungry. But once in a while I come across some non-micro ways to make a difference that are just as easy to get involved in as click-to-donate sites. So I thought I’d share some of them with you:

  • Getting married? Crashbar photography will do your wedding photography, and all they ask for compensation is a donation to a charity of your choice. Afterward, if you’re willing to part with your dress, donate it to Brides Against Breast Cancer.
  • Booking a vacation? Auction for Wishes auctions off luxury vacation packages as well as other items for the Children’s Wish Foundation. Auctions are hosted on eBay and start at 99 cents. Or, why not join a volunteer vacation trip? There’s lots of tour operators out there, from GoPhilanthropic to STA Travel.
  • Are you an athlete? Be an athlete for Africa makes it easy for you to raise money for promoting and protecting human rights while doing whatever it is that you normally do for fun, whether it’s climbing a mountain, making a bike trip, or playing in a football league. Raise over $200 and you can become an official Athlete for Africa member.
  • Looking for dance lessons? Some places, like Salsa for Charity in Toronto, offers lessons where 100% of the lesson fees go toward charity.

That’s just a few examples – more in a later post if there’s interest!
