February 14th, Valentine’s Day, is defined as “a day when it is traditional to send a card, often anonymously, to a person one is romantically involved with or attracted to.” Valentine’s Day, however, has widely become known as a commercial holiday and a day that is viewed negatively by many. Instead of reading countless articles listing reasons why Valentine’s Day is the worst make the holiday one to spread positivity. While many can agree that love isn’t spread through the gifting of teddy bears, chocolates or flowers use the day to spread love in a different way. Perhaps spread love by donating your time, money or belongings. Help at a soup kitchen, donate to a shelter, give your old clothes to Goodwill and more.
Donate time or money to Broad Street Hospitality Collaborative to help feed men and women who are homeless, at risk of being homeless, or of low-income and likely need a little extra love.
Donate time, money or supplies to STAR, Street Tails Animal Rescue; animals are accepting of all love.
Donate items you don’t need anymore to Goodwill where someone else can love them.
*These are just a few of many ways you can spread love on February 14th. *
