It’s been a long, blurry year. As 2020 winds down, many people try to focus on the good. This time of year, we look inward. It is a time to be thankful for what we have, and consider giving back to those that are less fortunate.
The holiday season sparks generosity in most people. For charities and nonprofits, it’s an important time of year for fundraising. Most non profit organizations have 3 major ways to give back: donating, volunteering, and raising awareness for their causes.
Donating refers to giving, simply sharing what you have with others. Being a millionaire is not a requirement to help those in need. Offering something that others could use, makes an immediate difference.
If you don’t have resources to offer you can always volunteer your time. This could be assisting at a fundraising event, answering phones, or even serving at a soup kitchen. By volunteering your time, charities can focus their resources on giving back to their cause instead of paying for labor.
Last but not least we have awareness, this means sharing with others your experiences and what you have learned about specific charities. Communicating with friends and family the importance of the cause is always valuable. Sharing information about how to give back could change the perspective of others and potentially encourage them to donate as well.
Before we get further into giving of time or money, we’d like to give thanks. With Thanksgiving around the corner, ThermoPro would like to say thank you. Thank you to our innovative client partners for trusting ThermPro to bring your projects to life. It’s been an honor to be a part of your journey. We would also like to thank Yamaha for recognizing us as a top 10 supplier for Yamaha Motors.
We will continue to make reliable, affordable, and innovative products for our customers in 2021.
Ways to Give Back
In addition to giving thanks, ThermoPro is proud to support The Tommy Nobis Center. This is a Georgia based non-profit organization focused on helping people with disabilities find meaningful employment. They envision supportive communities where people with disabilities are afforded the opportunity to work.
But there are hundreds of charities helping people throughout Georgia. Here are five examples, apart from the Tommy Nobis Center, to consider.
- Bert’s Big Adventure is a nonprofit organization established in 2002. They provide a magical, all-expenses-paid, five-day journey to Walt Disney World® for children with chronic and terminal illnesses and their families.
- Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta provides specialized care in more than 30 pediatric specialties to kids from all walks of life. They have kid- friendly waiting rooms and equipment that fits patients of all sizes. Every detail is designed specifically for kids.
- Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit organization that helps families build and improve places to call home. They believe that affordable housing plays a critical role in strong and stable communities.
- Hands on Atlanta connects changemakers to nonprofits and schools in need while engaging socially responsible companies to help make a difference in the community. They have multiple programs based on various causes. They assist with the environment, youth, family, arts, wellness, hunger, homelessness, and seniors.
- Atlanta Community Food Bank’s mission is to fight hunger by engaging, educating, and empowering Atlanta’s community. They work with more than 700 nonprofit partners to distribute over 65 million meals across metro Atlanta and north Georgia.
Having so many options, categories, and ways to give back could be overwhelming for some people. Everyone wants their donation to have an impact. Whether you donate time, money, or awareness, the important thing is to take action; big, or little, every bit counts.
How we can help
Giving back does not stop when you share your resources with others that are in need. Incentivizing others to help, share, and act for someone else is a very important part of the process.
If you are looking for a way to support a charity but want to something more than a cardboard box, we may be able to help. We make a deluxe donation stand that can be placed in store, at fundraising events, hospitals, or any other (socially distant) high traffic area.
Placing one of these in a prominent position provides an easy way to raise money for causes close to you. This stand is proudly made in America and is an effective way to increases awareness while collecting donations; two out of three of the most popular ways to give back!
Whatever you decide to do for the holidays or everyday, we are thankful for you. For more information about the deluxe donation stand contact us today.
