Supporting a charitable cause is a great way to give back to the local or international community. Unfortunately, some people cannot afford to make charitable donations or else feel that a simple monetary pledge is not a significant enough gesture. There are multiple ways one can contribute to a cause without making a financial commitment, beginning, of course, with volunteer work; many charities are in need of extra hands, whether it is a long-term commitment or just for a weekend.

There are also several types of causes that require more than money to operate. For example, an individual can donate blood. Most healthy people between 17 and 65 can donate, which generally requires no more than 10 minutes. Similarly, bone marrow, which is usually in higher demand than blood, can be donated. Individuals can also volunteer to raise puppies from 6 weeks to about 1 year of age to be seeing eye dogs. Finally, voting can be a great way to support a charity; some parent organizations support charities when their members attend meetings and vote on important causes. Moreover, voting in local and national elections can dictate funding for various charity groups.
