My chiropractor/wellness centre (who is now a client) has an amazing charity offer and has been doing it for years:
In December for those staff that wish to particicpate: they provide one FREE treatment and you donate to one of 2 charities what you think the service is valued. (Food bank & another charity which changes each year). you get a tax receipt.
What's great about it -- you know it's coming so you plan for it in your 'donation budget'. Last year I wrote a cheque for $365 - representing $1 per day for a food bank. He was soooo overwhelmed that he was emotional when he thanked me. It was the nicest feeling that I have had in years.
He also has a box for the food bank.

Great ideas. It really is a win on many fronts - small businesses collect "local" link and mentions that help in the search results, good publicity, relationships with local influencers and most importantly help others who may be less fortunate during the holiday season.

Thanks for a good read.
I am a graphic designer and I recently offered my services free of charge to a dog shelter. It doesn't help me to promote myself much but it is a great getaway from my usual work. It also allowes me to make something creative as you usually get more freedom, when you offer your services for free.
Lastly it is a great opportunity when you are not sure about donating money.
