Foster Love This Valentine’s Day!
Spread the foster love this Valentine’s Day with our top 5 philanthropic date ideas.
Flowers, chocolates, and candlelit dinners have all been done before, but to really impress your Valentine this year, make a difference with these 5 charitable date ideas!
Help Animals At A Shelter
What could be more heartwarming than taking care of puppies and kittens? Volunteering at a shelter or animal rescue center is a great way to give back and have fun doing it. Together you can play with cats or take dogs for walks, getting warm fuzzy feelings while helping your furry friends!
Benefit walks are a fantastic way to get active and do good in the world at the same time! You and your date can keep each other pumped and motivated throughout the walk, or turn it into a race if you’re both competitive. You’ll have plenty of time to talk and get to know each other during the walk, and afterward, you can grab drinks to celebrate reaching the finish line.
Clean Up Your Community
Whether it’s a beach, park, or community garden, there’s sure to be something in your area that needs a little love. You can help your Valentine trim trees or pick up trash, beautifying your neighborhood so that everyone can enjoy it. Bring lunch to have a picnic together and admire your hard work!
Volunteer At A Soup Kitchen
Some people make dinner for their Valentines, but we suggest you take it up a notch and volunteer at a soup kitchen together! Even if you don’t know how to cook, you can still help serve food to those in need. The people you’re serving will definitely appreciate your efforts, and you and your date can grab dessert afterward.
Give Back To Kids In Foster Care
There are tons of fun activities you and a date can do to improve the lives of foster youth, and Together We Rise can help! Decorate Sweet Cases with your sweetheart, build a Birthday Box with your beloved, or assemble skateboards with your significant other. If you’re in Southern California you can even help by taking your Valentine to MOD pizza! There are so many ways to show you care on Valentine’s Day or any day of the year.
