There are an endless number of people in the world doing good and helping others. Some do it in their day to day walk. Others start a foundation or raise money to contribute to a cause. Many of those people start their endeavor because they have been inspired by a specific person or event. Others see the worthy outcome of something and realize they need to invest with either their time or money. Then there are people like me.
Where do you begin if you have had no particular inspiration or any one cause that tugs at your heart? How do you choose one over another without feeling as though you have decided which cause is more important?
Although I haven’t yet found the precise answer, I believe I have learned where to start. Why not begin by determining my strengths and talents? Some organizations may not consider my love for baking a necessary contribution. That was just an example but this has also presented me with yet another dilemma; discovering my strengths. Do you put effort or money into a certain cause or area of need? What led you to do what you do?
