Giving Your Time: Why Gilbert Starleigh Makes it a Priority

12 Jul

Internet and television campaigns bombard people with requests for donations for their nonprofits. Many people see those commercials, but don’t have the money to make that kind of financial commitment for every cause that they are interested in supporting. Gilbert Starleigh encourages to people to give their time to support causes or nonprofits they believe in.

When you donate money to an organization, you help make a difference by contributing to that cause and what they are able to do. When you donate your time to an organization, you help a cause by doing what it is they do. Donating to the ASPCA to help buy food to care for rescue dogs is great. It is, however, much less useful without people there to do the feeding.

Gilbert Starleigh says that donating his time to organizations and causes he cares about makes him feel fulfilled. “Being able to be one of those people going in there to do the actual work is an amazing feeling,” says Gilbert. Gilbert Starleigh says that people can find somewhere to lend a hand, and probably do it much closer to home than they ever imagined.

Do a Google search for animal rescues or soup kitchens in your area. You’ll be surprised at what you find. Gilbert Starleigh also encourages people to call specific ministries and find what their specific needs are. For example, animal rescues and shelters are often in need of newspapers to line animals’ cages and crates. Lending a helping hand in that situation is as easy as walking down your street and asking your neighbors to save their newspapers for you.

Gilbert Starleigh believes that taking even a small amount of time to contribute to the betterment of the world around you is something that every single person should make a priority. Even a few minutes of your time can make a big difference.
