When I started university in the fall, I didn’t quite believe that I’d be this busy. I knew that I’d have more responsibilities, but I didn’t realize how much time I’d have to devote to reading, writing, and extracurricular activities. While I did miss free time to watch Netflix and hang out with friends, I also missed volunteering and contributing to charities like I used to in high school.
It’s not that I’m not still motivated to donate and make an impact, it’s that I simply don’t have the time and struggle to manage it. The good news is that a solution dropped itself into my lap over the Christmas holidays.
Fashion Forward Thinking
While at home, my Aunt mentioned Dial 2 Donate and how she uses it when contacting DPD customer service to check in on her orders. Now, a little bit of context: me and my Aunt have always been in love with fashion – and thus shopping. So when she told me about Dial 2 Donate. Considering how much my Aunt loves to shop, she’s probably contributed a fair share.
The good thing about it was that it got me thinking about how much I loved volunteering and contributing to the causes I loved. Realizing how much I missed this, I decided to try doing it myself. I’ve always been an avid shopper, and ordering online has made it extremely convenient. In turn, I can get back to contributing to causes that I care about.
I can easily fit it into my life!
While I may not be able to do what I’d usually do, this allows me to fit this charity into my regular schedule and keep up with my busy life! By using numbers I’d call anyway, like the DPD contact number to track my deliveries, I can donate to charities without having to take time out of writing papers. This way, I can get to do everything I love – shopping, charity, and my essays – in the time I actually have!
Donations by Delivery
While this isn’t the only number I’ve used, this is the only one I’ve programmed into my phone. Given how much I shop and end up calling to track my order and discuss my parcel, I end up making a positive impact and serious donation to a great cause. Over time, this adds up, allowing me to feel good about my contribution while still doing what I love most.
I haven’t added any other numbers, but by picking numbers that you use regularly and programming them into your phone, you can donate to causes you care about too! The best thing is that you’ll be able to integrate it simply and conveniently into your busy life. If you’re like me and you don’t have the time you used to but you still want to make a contribution, D2D lets you work it into your schedule and lifestyle!
If it worked for me, it can work for you too! Simply check out the D2D directory for numbers that you’d call. Instead of calling the regular number, use these to make a contribution.
