What kind of world do you want to live in? 147,989 of our neighbors in Charlotte live in poverty. All around us there are people that feel alone and have nowhere to turn. No one to listen to them.

Step in to your giving.

We create the world around us. We CAN make a difference. If we all take small steps it turns in to large steps and transforms the world around us. We’ve put together this simple guide to help you turn the compassion in your heart into action.


What do you want to give? Time? Money? Skills? What are your strengths? How can these be of service to others? Are you an accountant or a successful entrepreneur? Offer financial counseling and business mentoring. Are you a doctor? Volunteer your services at a free clinic. Yoga teacher? Artist? Lawyer? Listener? There is a need for what you have. Take a look at Dale Mullinex’s TEDx talk we’ve included here. It’s a great place to start.


Scroll down and look at our Giving Guide to connect to organizations we’ve worked with. Or do some research on your own and figure out where to put your talents to use. There are many amazing organizations here in Charlotte. Use the Google. Check out Share Charlotte. Talk to your friends and neighbors. Start something brand new!



Hold yourself to it. Don’t just think about it. Make giving a habit instead of a special occasion. Don’t forget. Put it on your calendar. Set an alarm. Subscribe to our newsletter. Remind yourself that you want to connect. Make an offering of yourself. Move the dial.
