Charities and not-for-profit organizations are always seeking donations. Be creative and see what you can raise for your favourite organization. Businesses with a break room or lunch room might encourage employees to have coffee in the break room or bring a lunch from home instead of going out. If they donate what they would have paid, the money will add up, even if they only do it once or twice a week.
I hope you enjoy these and I would really appreciate your spreading the word. My stories are spread by word-of-mouth so this is the way that others might also see them.
