Making the world a better place sounds like a colossal task but every good deed contributes to the advancement of the world we live in. Making the world a better place can range from holding the door for someone to saving a life. Your contribution does not have to be huge to make an impact. But what are some of the ways you can make the world a better place?
Donate To Charity
One quick and easy way to improve the state of the world is by donating to charity. There are multiple charities worldwide, each designed to aid different people in need. For example, Children of Adam strive to provide people in need with food, clothing, education, shelter, and clean drinking water.
There is nothing more satisfying than knowing that you can save a life with just one hour of your time. People with an O negative blood type should especially consider blood donation, as this is what is known as a universal blood type, as it can be given to all patients regardless of blood type.
Donate Used Clothing
There are many places that you can donate your used clothing: clothes donation bins, charity shops, and homeless shelters. Each of these will make a difference to someone who needs it.
Foster An Animal
Animals have a shorter lifespan than us, therefore the impact that we have on their lives is even more significant. Fostering an animal gives them a warm, comfortable, and loving space before they find their forever home.
Join A Bone Marrow Registry
Much like blood donation, bone marrow donation could save a life. It is incredibly easy to sign up and there is great demand for male blood donors between 17 and 40 years old, and female blood donors who are aged between 17 and 40 and from BAME backgrounds.
Change Your Diet
Changing your diet can certainly have a positive impact on the world. You might try veganism, vegetarianism, or alternatively, have one meat-free day a week, buy free-range produce, or buy organic and fair-trade products.
Make Your Purchases Support Your Values
Buying from huge corporations supports the exploitation of people, animals, and the environment. However, buying from local or independent businesses greatly contributes to someone’s livelihood. Similarly, buying fair-trade ensures that the produce is bought from farmers at a fair price, whilst the company buying the products invests money into the communities where the goods are being sourced. Additionally, buying organic food means that no harmful chemicals are used in the growth or production process.
It is difficult to completely strip the presence of huge retailers from your life, but if you try and change a few of your purchases to reflect your morals and values, it can really make a difference.
The best thing that someone can be is kind. If you see someone who needs help, help them. If someone is being cruel to someone else, call them out. Being kind is one of the easiest ways that you can make the world a better place and is arguably the most important.
Ultimately, taking the necessary steps to make the world a better place is not a difficult task. Sometimes all it takes is to treat someone with compassion when they are having a bad day. Sometimes it is just giving something you no longer want to someone who desperately needs it. The ways that you can make the world a better place are in no way exhaustive; the possibilities are endless. Not only does this make the world better for others, but it also makes it better for yourself.
