some of my favourite kindness websites

I am always inspired by what some amazing “do-gooders” are up to in the world of social kindness, so I thought I would share some of my favourite giving websites with you, in no particular order:

Jolly People
Jolly People is a website dedicated to promoting charity events from around the world. This website is laden with celebrity cred, and is a fantastic collection of great things happening around the globe. Charities can also register their own events on the site for free.

HelpOthers.org
HelpOthers.org profiles small acts of kindness from around the world. If you are feeling down on the world, this is a great website that should restore your faith in humankind! It is true – kindness is contagious. The site has “smile cards” a game of pay-it-forward: anonymously making someone smile and leaving a note behind asking them to pay-it-forward. There is also a “Kindness ideas” section if you are looking for some great ideas for yourself or a group.

The Karma Currency Foundation
This fabulous website brags that they are the largest charitable gift registry in the Southern Hemisphere offering Charity Gifts, Charity Gift Vouchers, Charity Gift Registries, Fundraising Pages or Workplace Giving Platforms. Their goal is to make donating simpler, easier and more enjoyable. It is the perfect place for you to shop for the person who already has everything or if you are searching for a unique gift. All donations over $2 are fully tax deductible.

GiveNow.com.au 
GiveNow.com.au is a commission-free charity website listing thousands of good causes and creative ways to give. Empowering individuals to “give now” and that every single person has the power to make a difference. They break down ways that you can help others in bit-sized and meaningful ways, and not only the financial ones!
Follow them on twitter: @GiveNowNews

Givit.org.au
GIVIT is an online giving portal and web-based philanthropic community where people donate items or time to people in need. They run a “virtual warehouse” that that finds new lives for your unwanted items with worthy recipients. They describe themselves as similar to a dating agency, except that GIVIT connects those that have, with those that need.

I know that there are many, many more fabulous giving / kindness websites, what are your favourites websites or sources for kindness inspiration?
