How You Can Make A Difference In The World This Year

by Martha Simmonds

Most of us want the world to be a better place, but the harsh reality is that many of us don’t actually do anything to make that happen.

This is often because we think that to save the world, we need to always be doing big and dramatic things. And while these things do make a difference, small changes can be just as effective, so there’s no reason why you can’t make the world a better place. If you want to learn a few ways that you can go about this, keep reading.

Donate to charity

Most people think that if you are going to donate to charity, you need to donate a large sum of money in order for it to be effective. But that’s simply not true. Of course, if you want to donate a large sum of money, that’s amazing!

But even if you can’t donate a lot, every little bit counts, so don’t feel ashamed if you can only contribute a small amount.
Also keep in mind that if you do decide to donate, you should donate to a legitimate charity, and one that is close to your heart. Charitable giving doesn’t just make the world a better place – it can also help you feel better about yourself.


Another popular misconception is that you need to be rich in order to help the world. That’s also not true – there are many ways for you to help the world without spending any money.

For example, you may not have a lot of money to give, but you might have some free time on the weekends, so why not consider volunteering?

Many non-profit organizations like pet shelters are in desperate need of some extra hands, although if you do work with animals, you need to know how to deal with fearful dogs.

Be more eco-friendly

If you’re looking for a way to help make a positive change in both the world and your life, being more eco-friendly is an easy way to achieve this. The environment is under a lot of strain, and even small changes can help to make a difference. This means that you don’t necessarily need to live an entirely eco-friendly life, but rather try to make small, positive changes.

Make small changes

As mentioned above, you don’t need to do anything drastic to make the world a better place. Sometimes, you can simply start at home.

Look at your family and friends and think about some small acts of kindness that could help those around you. Maybe you know someone who has been feeling lonely, so why not invite them on a coffee date? Or perhaps you’ve noticed that you’re quite negative and that it’s bringing those around you down, in which case you could look into ways to be a more positive person. These changes may seem small, but don’t discredit their value. If you’ve had a positive impact on even one person’s life, you’ve had a positive impact on the world.
