Many of us spend time at home doing hobbies. Consider how you can use your favorite hobbies to contribute to the common good. Research what charities do work related to your hobby. In Spirit of Service: Your Daily Stimulus for Making a Difference, Penelope Franklin suggests knitting for a cause by connecting with other knitters, meeting regularly, and donating your creations to the charities of your choice. Or you could make and sell puzzles to benefit the Special Olympics or teach chess to senior citizens. If your hobby is gardening or pet care, how can you apply what you know to a cause?
