You could make your life a gift to the world

You don’t have to become Mother Teresa, although that would be fantastic. You can make your life a gift to the world in any number of ways.

You can donate money to an organisation that is helping the world. These organisations can’t operate without donations so you are helping the world even if you aren’t at the front line.

You can do volunteer work. But do something that really makes a difference in people’s lives.

You can use your talents. If you are a web designer you could offer to update a charity website. If you are a nurse you could offer to help train volunteer ambulance staff, if you are a brilliant teacher then take a job in a low socioeconomic school where you can really make a difference. If you feel you don’t have any particular skills (you do if you look) then go door knocking to raise funds for a charity that means something to you.

You could convince your employer to give you and your team the day off to go around town collecting money for a specific cause.

Or simply raise your hands in a heartfelt prayer for world peace because as Mahatma Gandhi said:

Prayer is not an old woman’s idle amusement. Properly understood and applied, it is the most potent instrument of action.
