Everyone deserves presents over the holidays, regardless of his or her situation. Lend a helping hand this season and wrap presents for a good cause. Hey, if Kanye West can do it, so can you!
Find your organization. Get in touch with a group that works with families with disabilities and ask if they’d like some contributions (although the answer will most likely be yes, especially during this time of year).
Recruit your elves. See who would be willing to wrap a few presents for charity for a day or even a few hours. Your Do Something Club could host the event, or gather up enough of your classmates and make it a school wide volunteering event.
Scout out a venue. Make sure that your wrapping location has heavy traffic so you can get as many customers as possible. Your favorite mall or bookstore would be great places to work.
Deck out their gifts. In order to have a radiant-looking present, you’re going to need good supplies to do it with. Use seed paper wrap, banana fiber paper, old maps or newspapers to wrap up the gifts and eco-friendly yarn to tie it up. Make your presents look great while reducing your carbon footprint!
Determine your fee. Wrapping presents comes with a price. In exchange for getting his or her gifts wrapped, each customer could donate a new toy or book.
Wrap it up. If you don’t already know how to wrap a present, school yourself before testing out your skills on strangers’ gifts. Once you get that locked and loaded, wrap away!
