Giving back can have a positive impact on your life and your business. Studies have shown that being in service to others can reduce stress, plus it shows your customers you care about the community.
Here are ten ways you can give back:
- Donate as a Team
Pick a few causes that you feel strongly about. Then make a list of non-profits and ask your employee’s opinions or take a vote on which charity you will donate to for the year.
- Offer Your Products
Offering your products or services is a great way to give back to your community. You could contact a local homeless shelter to find out what grooming tools might be helpful and make small individual bags to donate.
- Meal Donation
Cater lunch or dinner for the staff of a non-profit whose cause is close to your heart.
- Support Another Small Business
Spend time supporting and buying from other local small businesses.
Offer to mentor someone just getting started in the beauty industry.
- Elderly Community Center
Volunteer by yourself or as a company to help with errands or events.
- Food Bank
Donate canned goods to your local food bank.
- Homeless Shelter
Help serve food or offer to help set up events at a local shelter.
- Meaningful Letter Writing
Write nice letters or donate toys and other needed items to a Children’s hospital.
- Good Will
Donate beauty products, clothing, and coats.
