Valentines Day can be a dreadful day for singles. While questions like, "Where is Cupid? Why hasn't he stricken me with his love arrow?" can be daunting, V-Day can mean more than just a day for the love birds.
While I am a fan of loving yourself, sometimes showing loves to other people can make your heart grow two sizes too big. Although Valentines is usually celebrated for lovers only, here are a couple of ideas you can do to love someone else.
But also remember, especially in this day in age, some people have no one to love or haven't experienced love, so when you find it in your heart to express a heartfelt emotion, those who are around you are instantly affected by the warmth and love you've given.
So here's what you can do on V-Day to spread a little love.
Give the Gift of 3
Going red on Valentines Day makes perfect sense. Donating your blood will help save lives. According to the American Red Cross, the donating process is not that hard to do. First you would need to be hydrated and wear something comfortable. You will need to bring your ID and perhaps a friend who won't mind giving the gift of three. Not only will this make you feel good inside, but you'll be affecting the lives of three people who may need your blood to stay alive.
Locks of Love
Another way to show someone love on V-Day is to make a donation. One great organization is Locks for Love, which is a non-profit organization who uses your long, lushes locks to help kids who are suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. With your lovely locks, you can help a little child feel good about
themselves and help boast up self-esteem. If you want to learn more about this organization, you can visit their website at locksoflove.org
One last way to show your love is to make a special delivery to perhaps a domestic violence shelter for battered women. You can make someone feel loved and appreciated by doing something that shows that there is someone who cares. Perhaps you can donate cookies or encouragement cards to uplift and motivated these women at your local women's shelter.
However you decided to spend Valentines Day, remember that love makes the world a better place.
