If there are charities nearby asking for volunteers, consider those that can involve your family. It might be a local litter pick, for example, or any other type of activity that is headed by a local conservation group. Or there could be charities looking for local fundraisers, so consider what your family could do to raise money. You could set up a lemonade stand or have a bake sale, as just two examples. By taking part in such activities, you will have more time to bond with your family. You will also teach your children the importance of giving back, and how they can do much to support the needs of the local community.
