Best Answer

You can donate to a charity at any age. Even if you don't have money to donate, you can donate items you no longer use such as clothes, toys or games in good condition.
You can also donate your time, however, charities may have restrictions on how old you have to be to volunteer or that you have to have an adult with you or have to have parent/guardian permission.

How To Volunteer For a Children’s Charity?

There are many different types of children’s charities located throughout the world, dedicated to helping and improving the lives on young children. Each charity reaches out to specific groups of children, such as those who are terminally ill, come from abusive homes, or are born into poverty. Since many of these charities are non-profit, meaning that they are not funded by the government, these charities operate on the support and volunteers of their members. Reaching out and donating time to these children’s charities is the perfect way to gain firsthand experience in working with others and changing the lives on young children. To volunteer for children’s charities, first find out what types of charities exist in your area. Perhaps the local hospital is looking for volunteers to read stories to sick children, or maybe an organization is seeking out volunteers to work at a soup kitchen during the weekends. Whatever the reason, be sure to choose a children’s charity that you feel passionate about. If you are not sure where to start looking, check online for organizations within your area. You can also reach out to your local Red Cross, as well as schools, hospitals and churches in your area. These places will be able to direct you to children’s charities in need of volunteers. Next, consider how you will be donating your time to the children’s charity. Some people are able to offer a few hours a week, while others only a few hours a month. The beauty of volunteer work is that nothing is too little, so offer what you can. Besides donating time, you can also donate funds to help a children’s charity, something that is much needed in order to help the organization offer resources to children in need. Also be sure to share your skills with the children’s charity and how you intend to help. Some people prefer hands-on work and interaction, while others enjoy administrative work, team building or financial planning. Once you have found a charity that you feel passionate about, you will begin to understand the organization and offer more support. Expand the volunteers by bringing in your own friends and family and watch as you change the lives of children everywhere.
