Reader's Digest - - How To -

Spread­ing Warmth

Help­ing those in need. I make blan­kets for chil­dren’s hos­pi­tals, pet blan­kets for an­i­mal shel­ters, and shawls for the el­derly. —Chris­ten Lip­pin­cott atas­cocita, texas

Col­lect­ing Mem­o­ries, Not Stuff

Stop buy­ing trin­kets that give you mo­men­tary plea­sure. Rather, make mem­o­ries that will last a life­time. Travel and visit as many places as you can, re­con­nect and build friend­ships, and take plenty of pho­tos along the way. Mem­o­ries have given me much more long-last­ing hap­pi­ness than any phys­i­cal ob­ject can bring! —Sri­ram Srid­har raleigh, north carolina

Build­ing Lit­er­acy

I truly be­lieve we can change the world one per­son at a time, which is why I be­came a lit­er­acy vol­un­teer. Noth­ing is more mem­o­rable than the look in the eyes of an adult when he or she reads for the first time. You know for as long as they live they will re­mem­ber you. —Char­lotte Dipaola niverville, new york
