Have you ever realized that you could actually help others by Organizing Your Life?
Donating is my favorite motivation tool to help someone get organized. It not only helps clear your life of items that you no longer use or need, it allows someone else to benefit from them. To you; these items may just be clutter that really doesn't mean much, but to someone else, it could really brighten their day or better yet, change their life.

Become an Organized Angel
:
The mission of this group is to influence people that have recently organized their homes, to donate their unneeded/unwanted items to others. Wether it is a charity, family in need or you donate that red sweater you never wear to your sister because she has always loved it, it is still donating! I started Organized Angels years ago on a website and it worked well so I am going to start it again. I love the idea because many readers end up finding a special organization in their area that they want to help. This encourages them to organize their life and see what they can part with in order to help.

Here's how you can be come an Organized Angel:
-Comment to this post that you "promise to donate items your no longer need"
-Give an example of what you donated and to whom (this is important because it shares ideas) so please share your examples throughout the year
-I will email you an Organized Angel badge to proudly display on your blog! By doing this you will be a mentor to others and help this group to grow.

Ideas to Help You Get Started:
-Linen Closet: Animal shelters can always use extra blankets and pillows
-Publications: Nursing homes, hospitals and doctor's offices are a great place to donate these. Be sure to remove the address label.
-Toys: A local needy family, a domestic violence shelter-if you don't know of one check with your local YWCA because the location of these is usually confidential.
-Pantry: This is a great time of year to give food to the hungry-check online for local food pantries.

Who Can You Donate To:
-Search charites and non-profits in your area on google
-Ask your local schools or churches if they know a family in need
-Local YWCA or SPCA
-Here are some other resources: www.womenandchildren.org, www.throwplace.com, www.charitynavigator.org

When donating please make sure items are in fair to great condition. Don't waste an organization's valuable (and sometimes limited) resoures by donating items that should be thrown away. And don't forget to ask for a tax receipt so you can claim your donation as a tax write-off.

Come on! Help me start an Organized Angels movement: clearing clutter AND helping people!
