It doesn't have to be an individual I know either. I've taken canned goods to a food bank, given money to someone holding a sign on a street corner, supplied a toy for a collection, lent a hand serving food at a shelter. Not all of these opportunities came right when I was feeling down. But they are simple things that are possible when I need a smile that comes from helping someone else.
And that's Tool #2: SERVE
What ways have you found to serve?
