Pay It Forward

Altruism makes the world a better place, but it isn't always in abundance. Being generous and altruistic might come innately for some people, but it doesn't for others. Yet there are different ways to give—donating to a charity, volunteering at a soup kitchen, or just helping a friend. Find the method that fits your needs and save the planet while you're at it.
