10 Ways to Give Thanks This Thanksgiving

2 of 11
Goodwill

Donate to a favorite charity, such as the Salvation Army or Goodwill.


Some items in your home may no longer be of use to you, but they could be extremely valuable to others. Gather up gently used toys, clothes, home furnishings, or other items in your home and deliver them to the Salvation Army, Goodwill, or another charitable organization. You could also give a monetary donation — even small amounts are welcomed. Include a little note on a piece of paper or on the check about why you've chosen the charity and why you support the cause.

Next: Visit a hospital.
