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 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 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.

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.

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.
