Can Your Home Help Someone Else?

Picture the scene. You’re sitting comfortably on the sofa, clutching a cup of coffee between your hands and quietly daydreaming about your future holiday. Ah, doesn’t your home feel like the best place on earth? It’s the place where you can relax at the end of the day. It’s the place where you can forget about all your worries and spend some quality family time. It’s your very own sanctuary, your bubble of peace and tranquillity. So, admittedly, it can be strange to imagine that your home could also bring the same pleasure and joy to someone else. Don’t worry. This isn’t about how to best sell the home you love and cherish. It’s about investigating the diverse ways in which your house can change someone’s life for the better. And there’s no catch here: You can truly improve another person’s life at no extra cost for you. So why not give it a go and make someone’s day?


Can you give the things you don’t need?
There is, unfortunately, a terrible trend in modern households with is to own more – much more – than you need. In fact, if you have young children, decluttering is an absolute must, as it can help to avoid many nasty accidents. You can reduce allergy risks when you clear out your home from all the clutter that gathers dust and dust mites. Additionally, you’ll find that the home is altogether easier to maintain and clean – which enhances your interior. But ultimately, the things you don’t want or don’t need could find a new home and help someone in need. For large items, for instance, you could use the Habitat HM donate furniture option, as this allows you to get rid of your unwanted in a charitable manner. Additionally, small items can also be donated through a variety of charity organizations. One rule matters here: make sure everything is in good condition!

Can you spare a bedroom?
Every year, international students come to the US to improve their skills. For most of them, the stay will be of a short-term, which makes it more difficult to find an accommodation. Besides, as most international students need practical housing terms – fully furnished is a must – and someone who can help them to navigate the new place safely, you can be sure that you’ll be providing great support by renting out your spare bedroom. You will also be able to generate passive income through the exchange, which is always good to know. More importantly, if you love the idea of discovering a new culture, you’ll appreciate the chance to exchange thoughts with an international student.

Can you change a life?
Last, but not least, the idea of becoming a foster parent for a dog or a cat might be new to you, but for thousands of pets it’s the promise of a better life. Fostering a pet is extremely rewarding as you can watch your portegé evolve and relax over time until they are ready to be adopted. Fostering an animal is saving a life.

Whether you’ve got unwanted items to give or enough room to welcome a foster dog, your home has the power to change lives. Let it operate its magic!
