We greet each year with high hopes and great expectations. As human beings living in the modern world, we strive to make this year better than the one before. We are excited about the prospect of opportunities that await us in the future and what 2015 has in store for us.
This sentiment of optimism is not shared amongst all though.
There are certain parts of the world where things have remained stagnant for decades. Their lifestyles have not improved at all. Every day it is the same story of survival, suffering, and sorrow. However, you can change that with your actions. In today’s post, we will talk about some of the ways you can contribute to a better tomorrow for people who have given up on their future.
Donate to Relief Aid Campaigns
The best way to bring about change is to enforce it. Relief aid agencies like www.muslimaid.org work around the clock in some of the most volatile regions of the world to ensure proper aid gets to its recipients. If you are passionate about a particular campaign, be it the Syria Relief Aid campaign or the Gaza Emergency Campaign, get involved and make a donation. Browse through the different campaigns that need help and learn about what has been done to improve the lives of people living in these areas. Get an understanding of the challenges they are facing and if it resonates with you, make a financial donation.
Take the Rucksack Challenge
Some people are more interested in getting involved in aid campaigns that are being conducted on a local level. When it comes to bettering a community, a great place to start is your own community and then reach out to others on a more national scale. The Rucksack Challenge is a great way to contribute to the well-being of other people and the best part is that it does not even require a financial donation.
Participating in the Rucksack Challenge is easy. Fill out a form on Muslim Aid’s website to receive your Rucksack Challenge Pack. Then, pack the rucksack with daily life essentials. This can include a variety of things from sleeping bags and warm clothes to edible food and canned goods. Once your rucksack is full, give it to a homeless person. They will appreciate this gesture. Getting involved in aid campaigns does not mean there should be a financial contribution involved. Programmes like the Rucksack Challenge by Muslim Aid are a great way to get involved on a local level and positively affect the lives of people around us.

One of the services that is high in demand at any relief aid agency is without a doubt volunteer work. Volunteering essentially opens up an unlimited amount of possibilities. There are so many ways to get involved. You can volunteer at an event, be a part of an awareness campaign, attend seminars and exhibits and get involved in discussions that address community issues or relief aid in different parts of the world. For the most part, relief aid work revolves around assisting in hosting an event. Some activities will even result in volunteers getting a certificate of achievement. It is a great accomplishment, and it feels even better.
Get involved in campaigns and activities that change people lives. Make a difference and make your opinion and your effort count. See our website for more details.
