It always feels good to help someone else improve their life in some way. Here are a few ideas for giving back to remember loved ones.
Volunteer – to find an organization near you visit http://www.volunteermatch.org/. One place to volunteer is Feed My Starving Children http://www.fmsc.org/home. You spend a few hours packing food for the poor. See video: http://youtu.be/ech5XOryipM
See Amy Lyon’s blog for a personal story of how she eases the grief of losing a child by giving back. http://rememberourlovedones.blogspot.com/2012/10/nourishing-my-wounded-spirit.html
Sponsor a Chinese orphan through http://halfthesky.org/en. Give a one-time gift or ongoing sponsorship to someone in honor of the memory of your loved one. See the amazing progress that Jenny Bowen, founder of Half the Sky Foundation, made in China! See a video interview on Good Morning America at http://halfthesky.org/en/news/5764.
