For many, the thought of moving means countless hours of sorting through items and packing boxes, but have you ever thought about how a move can make a difference in someone else's life? If not, you may want to rethink the way your next move is done because you have the ability to change someone else's life for the better.

People move each and every day, and with each move comes an opportunity, to help someone who may be in need. While it is easy to throw out items, in an attempt to make the moving process easier, it takes a dedicated initiative to want to help someone in need. From old clothes to blankets, coats to hats, the possibilities are endless for how discarded items can make a difference in someone else's life. Giving back to others adds new meaning to a move, and moving with a purpose makes a difference.

Before your next move, take inventory of what you have. Think about whether or not you really use the items you are moving, then make out a list of items you will keep, and items you will give away. As you go through your list, start creating boxes that you will give as donations. Follow the same method for furniture and other large household pieces you decide to give away. It is so easy to take the comforts of life for granted when life is going well and prosperous, but there are those who have fallen upon hard times, and simply need a helping hand. No one is required to help, but taking the initiative to help is what changes lives.

Food is always a welcomed donation and moving is the perfect time to give food to the hungry. Since most perishable food items cannot be packed and stored, consider cooking up the refrigerated and frozen food you have and providing a meal for the homeless. Surprise someone who is hungry with a warm, cooked meal. Touch someone's life by showing them you care and add purpose to your move.

Moves are all about transitions. Moving is going from one place to the next, and when you make a move, changing someone else's life in the process makes a mark on helping them to transition in life as well. It is amazing how simply showing someone kindness and paying it forward through donated items will continue to help families, men, women and children, and let them know that someone cares.

A great way to find out where you can help out the most is to get in touch with your local donation centers and various area organizations. Visit local community centers and find out what the needs of your community are. Once you know the need, incorporate your giving into your moving process and take the initiative to change a life. Moving with a purpose redefines the moving process, and makes it about more than just moving boxes. Moving with a purpose moves and changes lives, one box at a time, one life at a time. If you would like to make a difference during your next move, consider the idea of giving away some of the items you no longer use, and redefine your moving process into a great cause.
