Valentine’s day is just around the corner. If you’ve been wondering how to celebrate it this year, we suggest doing something meaningful like crowdfunding. Something that adds value to society, or benefits people of lesser means. The few bucks you spend on chocolate and roses can actually have a huge impact on the life of a child, or an aged or ill person in need.
We recommend celebrating Valentine’s day by giving to charity. You can be a valentine to someone in need, and we promise it’ll be worth it!
Here are a few ideas for Valentine’s day, and how to celebrate it in a meaningful way this 2017:
Switch your expensive dinner by feeding the hungry
Instead of going out on a date to an exorbitantly priced meal for two, you could stay home and cook a home cooked meal for your loved one. The money that you save from that one expensive meal can be donated to a program or a charity that feeds the hungry.
Switch your bouquet of roses for a tree plantation drive
Rather than buying a bouquet of roses, you could support an environment foundation by giving your savings to a tree plantation drive that will make our environment a better place to live in. Breathing clean air is definitely worth the bouquet of flowers you pass on!
Switch your romantic weekend getaway by providing to a shelter home
A weekend away to celebrate Feb 14 with your loved one is a great idea. But you could also consider directing the money you spend on the trip, to provide shelter for homeless or needy people.
We hope this list of small and meaningful ideas helps you to reach out to those in need. Celebrating with random acts of kindness can be the most rewarding feeling in the world. So, go ahead and be a valentine to someone in need!
