For some people, the urge to give back to society is strong. We live in a harsh world, and there are so many problems that affect everyone on the planet. But when you look around, it is generally safe to say that you may well be in a better position than most. 

You may have gone through some hard times yourself. Dealing with difficult situations can help you to find new strength, and it can also give you the desire to help others who may be facing difficulties in their life. 

Helping other people through life’s worst moments is something that you can feel good about doing. There really is no crime in knowing that you have done something genuinely beneficial for someone other than yourself. 

Giving The Gift Of Life

There is nothing more heartbreaking to some people than facing the fact that they may never be able to have a child. There can be many reasons that can prevent people from having the child that they want; these may include infertility issues, being a single parent, or being in an LGBT couple. Helping someone by providing egg donation could make the biggest difference to their world. 

There will be necessary requirements that are in place to ensure that you are suitable to be an egg donor. These will include your age, health, and family history. Along with your physical suitability, there will be a question of your maturity and emotional ability to provide this service for a couple. 

You will be required to take fertility drugs and undergo a small surgical procedure to remove your eggs. You will receive compensation for your donation, although people are generally not motivated to do this.

Giving The Gift Of Time

Donating money is one thing, but giving up time to help other people demonstrates that you really care about the cause. There are many ways that you can help some excellent causes by giving your time.  

There is a vast array of charities that need volunteers. Find one that you believe in and that you want to give your time to learn all about how they operate and the ethics behind the charity to make sure it is one that you are happy to help with. 

You may want to work one-to-one with people that need help; this could be working with people with terminal conditions, with homeless people, asylum seekers, or elderly people. There may be any number of ways that you can help them, from giving them friendship and emotional support through to helping with feeding or providing physical care. You may want to offer up your time providing phone support through an agency such as the samaritans. 

There may be other ways that you can give up your time to help others, such as working as a youth leader with disadvantaged children, attempting to give them confidence. Often having a strong role-model in a young person’s life can be very beneficial to them as it can provide them with something to aspire to.
