How can you help out your favorite orphanages during Covid-19?
It is vital during this difficult time that we all follow the advice of our governments (wherever in the world you might be) and stay home, respect social distancing guidelines, and keep safe.
However, it is still possible for you to help out with your favourite orphanages remotely during lockdown.
Here are a couple of ideas of how you can help out from the comfort of your sofa – comment below if you think of any we’ve missed!
1. Promote their good work on social media
We’re probably all spending more time on social media than usual right now, and your favourite orphanages can definitely benefit from our increased screen time.
Use whatever social media channel you choose to re-tweet / re-post items from orphanages own accounts. This helps to spread their message and let more people know about the excellent work that is still going on
2. Donate (if you can) and encourage others to do the same
Whether it’s by running a 5K and nominating others to do the same or simply donating a little bit to your favorite’s orphanages, every little helps.
Many people are worried about finances right now and there is a lot of uncertainty for many jobs and industries. Understandably, donating may not be the right thing for you at the moment, which is totally fine.
3. Volunteer online
Even before the Covid-19 crisis, many orphanages look for volunteers to help remotely with donations.
Many orphanages will advertise for volunteer positions via their website – it’s definitely worth a look.
