We’re laying down 5 simple tips for stepping out of your comfort zone and helping others. It’s a win/win, right? Challenge yourself to complete just a few of these and we promise you’ll grow, explore, meet new people, have fun and make a difference.
1. DO SOME GOOD ON YOUR NEXT VACATION
Use your next vacation days to do some good! Take advantage of time away from your normal routine to really step out of your comfort zone by volunteering at local shelters, bringing needed supplies with you in your suitcase and making a positive impact on the community you’re visiting. And what better way to experience the culture than to connect with locals through meaningful service?
2. GO ON A ROAD TRIP WITH STRANGERS
Hear us out on this one. We’re not suggesting you hitchhike across the country in a VW bus full of strangers. There’s a much safer (and fun) way to do it. Have Fun Do Good offers unique road trip excursions to destinations like Zion National Park, San Diego, Costa Rica and more and partners with non-profits along the way. And just as the name suggests, the trips are the perfect blend of fun and giving back.
3. HANG OUT WITH RISK TAKERS
Ain’t no shame in the fake-it-till-you-make-it game. Find risk takers you admire, start spending time with them and mimic what they do. These are usually the people who are making change, improving communities and doing the things others are scared to do. Pretty soon you’ll be the one taking risks and making a difference.
4. COMPLETE A RANDOM ACT OF KINDNESS
5. CHECK OUT VOLUNTEERMATCH.ORG
Have Fun. Do Good. owner and founder Adam Kunes incorporates his entrepreneurial spirit and passion for service into everything he does. Adam participated in Semester at Sea, a 100-day undergraduate cruise around the world. This experience opened Adam’s eyes to the world and shaped his views on what it means to truly give to others. His participation in many service-oriented trips both during Semester at Sea and at home inspired the concept for HFDG. Adam hopes his efforts will allow others to realize the opportunities to volunteer are endless and that service can be fun. IG: havefundogood
