We're back again with Date Idea Tuesday! (yes, these ideas can be used for friend dates too^^)
I will try to post one date idea each Tuesday so that, if you want to try this, you have time to get ready before Friday night.
These dates are dates that appeal to me and my lifestyle! If it doesn't work for you, you can 1. try to adapt it to your style or 2. let me know in the comments and I can give you more ideas or plan next week's date around your suggestions :)
What you need:
1. A cause you both care about
2. That's it!
The possibilities are endless:
Picking up trash at the park, working at an animal shelter, a soup kitchen, a retirement home, a school!
Find something that the two of you both feel passionate about and pick a day to volunteer.
I used to help my neighbor with Meals on Wheels where we picked up and delivered groceries for older folks who couldn't make it to the store themselves :) It was simple and didn't take too much time - which might be a good thing for first time volunteers!
Another idea for the active philanthropists is signing up for a 5K or any other kind of race. You'll help raise funds and awareness for the cause :D
Currently I volunteer at a dog shelter where I walk dogs for a few hours on Sundays to get them out of their small enclosures. It clears my mind and makes me feel great seeing how happy this makes the dogs :)
