Lately I have personally experienced contributing my gifts and talents towards a purposeful goal. There is something about that feeling you get on the inside when you know you are working for love and purpose.

Volunteering your gifts and talents can change a child's life.

I like to do things for a reason because then I don't feel empty on the inside. Do you feel that way? Are you bored with life? Are you looking for something to challenge you or for a place you can contribute your gifts and talents to that will make a difference in a child's life?

There are so many organisations you can contribute your gifts and talents to by fundraising, having a garage sale, doing a bake off with your friends or even holding a sausage sizzle at Bunning's Warehouse. You could also use your gifts and talents to perform in a charity concert or why not get a few friends together and run your very own craft stall to help raise money for children who experience the effects of living in poverty.

Volunteer with your gifts and talents. We are all good at something!

There is nothing like the feeling of helping other people, especially the innocent and vulnerable children who don't have a voice and need someone else to speak on their behalf.

Have a look at the not-for-profit organisations listed below that are making a big difference in the lives of many young children. You can be a part of helping these kids, all you need to do is work out what you love to do and what you are good at and go for it. We are all good at something! Just like Jordyn Archer a 20 year old from the Sunshine Coast, check out her story at Chant4Change now she's a real inspiration.

Loving what you do and working for a purpose really does make a difference in the lives of our community and the way we feel about ourselves. Are you willing to step out of your comfort zone and explore using your gifts and talents in a different way to contribute to a greater cause? Who knows, you might even meet some great people and make one or two extra friends.
