Those were the words of Mother Theresa, a saint in her own time. Never underestimate the power of an individual to change the course of the world. It takes something special but who’s to tell us not to try. If you have the call within you, to make a difference, then all you need to do is try. Now all of us can’t be Mother Theresa, and you don’t need to take out title loans to make your patch on this planet just that much happier.
A good way to start is to volunteer with non-governmental or charity organizations that work in and around your neighborhood. This gives you the opportunity to give back to the community that houses you. You also have the additional advantage of knowing the people you work with and thereby making a difference in the lives of people you care about. Most localities have at least a dozen socially responsible organizations that mobilize events that you definitely could be a part of. There are also a number of companies that offer title loans that could help you get a bit of money to start your work.
The big question is, “What do I do?” Well, the best way to pick an NGO is to first, after some serious introspection, figure out the area in which you’d like to work. This will help you commit to the work and thereby produce much better results. If you can’t make up your mind, try your hand a couple of things and you’re sure to find one that’s up your alley.
Another proactive option is to start your own small NGO. Identify a need that hasn’t been addressed and then figure out a way to help answer that need. You might need a bit of capital to start up. If you’re looking for funding, there are a number of options available; from garage sales, to rallies, or even title loans. You could use a title loan to set up your organization and slowly pay it back with portions of the money you collect by raising funds. All you need to do is to give a little to get a lot!
