Hi, I wold like to find out how people share their own free time to show love towards orders. 
1) What do you do, how do you help and where? 
2) Do you know of any online pages, organisation which collect or accept  craft and art ?  I wonder if here in UK are such an organisation which later auction the art / craft for fundrase money for worthiness purpose.
Please let me know. Thanks Iza

    I try and help people on here whenever I can, also help any neighbours if they need help, if I can that is.
    I am a person with epilepsy not an epileptic, my illness doesn't define me.

    I don’t really do anything as I’m either not capable or don’t have the confidence.

    All I can think of is that I try to help people while driving as much as I can. If I am out in the car it is usually for fun, I don’t have anywhere to be, whereas I’m aware the vast majority of others may be trying to get somewhere. I can afford to give up a small amount of my time to save them a bit. :)
