A Charity as good intention

So by the end of the year many look back on the past year. Was it a useful year? What went well? What has been disappointing? What should we have done better? All questions that lead to making good intentions for the year to come. In the hope of course, that we will keep to it. Research shows that we are not all that good to keep agreements with ourselves. Maybe it helps if we make meaningful good intentions!

Supporting a charity

In fact, everyone should support a good cause in due time. There is no doubt, of course, that we all support certain good causes. Unfortunately, it often stays there and unfortunately that good cause does not work out.

Make a plan

Choose a charity where you can fully identify and make a plan on how you could support this charity. And of course I do not mean that you throw a euro in the collection box. That is a good thing in itself, but that applies to all charities you support. No, one charity deserves your special attention. Well, you choose a good cause. Suppose it is KNGF Dogs.

Then you start thinking about how you can support that charity:

  • Financial donation. Not just in the collection box, of course, but a well-considered donation. A nice extra is that you can deduct the donation from the tax in many cases.
  • Become a puppy family. If the situation allows, take a puppy and help the organization prepare the puppy for his training.
  • Start a fundraiser. On the website of Whydonate are all kinds of examples of playful actions that can benefit the organization. Fun! If you have children who can help.
  • Adopt a puppy. Then financially. There are various options with different rewards for the donor.

Include them in your will. Perhaps a cruel idea, but for a charity of great importance.


You see that you can use yourself in many ways for charities. There is an appropriate way for everyone to be able to commit to a good cause. How you do that depends on your time and possibilities. This way you enter into a commitment that makes you feel good.

The reward

So you connect yourself to that one good cause. Maybe you wonder what you get back in return. To begin with, of course, a very good feeling. You have looked at and compared all sorts of good causes and supported the ones that you thought were worthwhile. Depending on how you have supported them, you have also gathered a wealth of information. Maybe you even have very good friends or acquaintances. You secretly support a good cause a bit for yourself. We are people and people find it very pleasant to be needed somewhere. Then we feel good and are at our best!
