Stimulus for good, a YouHelp.com initiative: Join us as we embark on our project to help rebuild the lives of our loved ones.

Millions of Americans will soon be getting another round of emergency stimulus funding. And for many people, these funds will come as a true life saver. Some people will use the money to fill up their food pantries. And for other families, these funds will help pay the rent, mortgage, or other vital utilities.

However, many Americans were blessed to financially survive this pandemic with little negative effects.

So before you run out and buy something you may or may not need, I would like to suggest another option.

How about giving a portion of the funds to charity?

There are many benefits to giving to a charity. And there is probably no better action that one can do to build up self-esteem than helping others. At the end of the day, the mere fact that you have made a positive impact in another person’s life has made that day worthwhile.

Are you existing or are you really alive? Ask yourself if you are growing as a person.

There is no better sign for all living organisms than growth. The fact is, you are only really living when you are growing. When one makes space in their heart for someone, they create room for new light to enter their life. By assisting someone who is in desperate need of funds, you are, in effect, sharing the breath of life.

So, if you are open to the option of sharing a part of your check or, if you are feeling very generous, most or all of your check, here are a few ideas of who you should give to.

First and foremost, you should look to your family.

As the saying goes, blood is thicker than water. Even if you haven’t spoken in years or even you had a past fallout, now is the time to look past that and rise to the occasion of greatness.

Don’t for a second believe that just because they say all is well, that it’s really is true.

If your family member lost a business or job due to the pandemic, chances are they are struggling financially. Perhaps you have relatives that need to add extra medical attention due to the pandemic. It could very well be that they can use the funds to help cover those costs.

Many family members may be too proud to accept the money, so try offering it as a long-term loan. Another option is to find a mutual friend or relative to help convince family members to accept the gift.

It is so easy to judge people in a negative way. However, today I dare you to try something new. Judge people and specifically these family members in a positive light. If there is a rift, try to find a reason that shows perhaps whatever caused the issue was completely not as you thought but much more innocent.

If you are satisfied that there are no family members in need of your help, turn to your friends. As the saying goes, friends are family that we choose for ourselves. Here, if you used your charitable funds to mend a broken relationship, the positive impact would be even more valuable.

Make sure to give the funds with tact and add a good word or two.

You can come out of this as a big winner on so many fronts. So, plan your giving by making sure that your act of giving does not unintentionally embarrass anyone.

If family and friends are all in good standing, I highly suggest that you scroll through some very important campaigns on our YouHelp.com crowdfunding platform.

As a crowdfunding coach, I know many of these selfless individuals working so hard to spread light and hope throughout the world.

My final suggestion to you today is to share your story.

The inspiration from your story of kindness can help motivate others to follow in similar footsteps. Stimulus for Good is an important YouHelp.com initiative! Use your Facebook and Twitter account to broadcast the positive action to encourage others. As Americans, we can show the world what true value social media has when used as a tool to spread good deeds.

Finally, if you have an inspirational story of a positive act that was accomplished through the stimulus checks, please send it to support@youhelp.com, so that we can share it on our social media channels.

How to Go Beyond Inspiration When Crowdfunding

A friend of mine came up to me the other day and told me the following story: “I went to a funeral this morning for one of my teachers. At the funeral, I started to think about how short life is and how important it is to make a positive contribution to the world. Every day is a gift and I have to make the most of it.”

“Then the family spoke about the many people the teacher had helped in his life, and I was truly inspired to make some real changes for the better in my own life. I was even inspired to give more when the head of an important local charity shared how dedicated he was with his own anonymous monthly contributions.

Then my friend posed this question: “Do you know how long my inspiration lasted?”

I answered, “Dave, knowing you I would say probably by the time you got home.”

He replied, “I guess you don’t know me well enough, because as soon as I could not see the cemetery from my rearview mirror, the inspiration was already gone!

Tips to help you go beyond inspiration

Inspiration is the spark that gets you started. However, Inspiration is also like a sailboat in the wind. The sails are full and the schooner is cutting through the water. When the wind stops, so does the sailboat.

So what can we do to hold onto the positive decisions that we make when we are inspired and transform them into a reality?

What I will share with you now is one of the key points that I share with my YouHelp.com campaign leaders in our coaching sessions. In reality, it is really easy and simple so pay attention. Are you ready?

Take five small, positive actions each day.

That is the difference between success and failure! Now let me explain why it is so important. You see, actions consistently repeated turn into habits. So, taking five positive actions each day will eventually turn into a habit of positive action.

You will need to make time for those positive actions in your daily routine. Where will you find the time in your busy life? One way is by removing some of the less productive habits from your schedule.

Turn positive steps into a habit.

You turn your positive steps into a habit just by doing them every day. Once your positive actions become a habit, you will look back and realize that you are transformed and elevated to a new positive person. And, your peers and colleagues will view you that way, too.

Don’t let negative thinking hold you back.

Don’t listen to any negative thoughts in your head telling you how insignificant your actions are because they are small. If you start small and check each action off, just watch and see! At the end of the month, those many small actions have grown into noticeable changes.

Consistency is an important factor to success.

Sharing these positive actions on Facebook and other social media channels will establish you as a leader which projects positive outcomes.

The difference between the successful crowdfunding campaigns and those that are not is a follow up plan. Successful crowdfunding campaigns all create a follow up plan to turn inspiration into consistent action.

A crowdfunding coach will help you create those vital steps of action to make sure your campaign succeeds.
