It’s easy to feel overwhelmed with sadness after a marriage ends. Something that you thought would last forever is now gone. You’re dealing with a host of emotions that send you on a roller coaster every day.

One way some people have found helps them through this time is donation their time to a worthy project.

I know, you’re probably thinking, “who has time for that?” And maybe you don’t. If your children are small,  or you have a demanding job that requires many hours then you may already have enough on your plate.

Even donating a few hours a month can produce a positive effect.
