What Can I do to Help?

I could start a program that helps and donates to people live on battle grounds,who are injured and hungry.I could also start a different program that is kind of like Heavenly Hats, but I would be giving hats to children with diseases that cause hair loss, raising money, and donating blood.I could also mow lawns,help carry groceries for my neighbors, and also, I might be able to pick up other peoples messes for them.
