How Donating & Volunteering Will Improve The Community
CEO/President of YSMF
We've come up with four simple ways that donating and volunteering can improve the community. There are different aspects of how we can improve the community through service. Safer communities are built by bringing people as volunteers together. It’s also healthy socially, by promoting communication between groups that might not usually come together, but will for the greater good.
Volunteering and donating also builds bridges between small businesses, large corporations, local, state, federal governments, citizens, and residents. Think about the many changes that can occur, and the power that can be harnessed, and the equity that will be established to further rebuild and improve on America's decimated communities. When these sectors combine ideas, capital, resources, and strategy to accomplish goals the results are very beneficial.
How Much Money Are we Talking?
There are several nonprofits that partner with various sectors to advance the community. For instance, Habitat for Humanity. Which is a global nonprofit housing organization working in local communities across all 50 states in the U.S. and in approximately 70 countries.

Volunteering helps to increase voter turnout and spurs political participation. When citizens are engaged change happens rapidly! When you start connecting and socializing with the local people you become more involved in the policies that created the problems or solutions. Volunteering also brings empathy for your fellow neighbors and that translates to better care, healthcare choices, and more funding for those in need in the community.
How Donating & Volunteering Will Improve The Lives of Others
CEO/President of YSMF
Donating and volunteering have helped improve the lives of millions of people here in America and throughout the world. Donating and volunteering not only benefits others but also you through your service.
You, friends, and your family can donate your time, money, clothing, and goods. Businesses can donate cash, supplies, or grant sponsorship to a program. Sponsors can help amplify the impact and reach of the Nonprofit's programs they help fund.
Did you know scientific research has proven that Performing good deeds can be contagious?
Yes, it’s true! Humans are motivated by good deeds! We often enable others to do good. When the opportunity presents itself to help others, we usually take it. Research further suggests that when people observe others helping people, they will also join in and help out.
The Ripple Effect
It doesn't stop there. Good deeds have a ripple effect on your life and those around you. Children who observe and young teens who volunteer are more likely to become more generous, helpful, and kinder adults. Compared to children who do not volunteer.
Another form of Donating can be through social media. You can contribute to a nonprofit by a share or like on any of it’s social media post. Remember the more you share, and like the more it helps the nonprofit to better help others. Think about it! Supporting social media posts helps the nonprofit promote its mission and increase its donations and impact. The more people we can reach, the easier it will be to help more people.
Science has proven that the more people we help, the more thankful we become.

We recognize the many benefits in our work at the You Saved Me Foundation every day that we serve. Many times during the week when we provide food to the hungry with our hunger relief Care Plate Program. Or during random distributions, we give warm blankets to cold unsheltered neighbors in need, along with our Emergency Care Kit Program. We came to realize that even animals know the power to care and love. Many serve as compassionate, loving companions to our neighbors we help. Knowing how important mental health is we feed them from our More Than A Pet Program. You instantly feel the gratitude and the love. This is why the programs at You Saved Me Foundation are free of charge for anyone and pets in the community.
The personal benefits of donating and giving do not stop there with you. They branch out in all aspects of your life. For instance, Improving Your Personal Life by creating many more positive social experiences than usual. Remember there is real Power in each act of Donating and Volunteering.
