A lot of the places mentioned above are based in South Africa, but there are so many more ways to do good and be kind all over the world. Most of them are so easy to do and you do not have to have money in order to do a good deed. The world has enough haters, let’s all do what we can to be a little bit kinder today and/or help someone less fortunate than us.

“Doing good holds the power to transform us on the inside, and then ripple out in ever-expanding circles that positively impact the world at large”
