National Volunteer Week starts April 6, but plenty of organizations could use your help year-round. If you’re looking to donate your time or talents, see how you can set to work any skills you have—as diverse as singing, knitting, gaming, or even arm-wrestling—to make other lives better.

If you know someone who’s been especially good this year—and you’re feeling very generous—you need to check out our roundup of prefab and DIY housing structures that you could gift this holiday. (And if you give one of these, you’ll probably walk away with the best gift-giver award too.) Unlike other very generous gifts (car, anyone?), a house or fun dwelling can last forever and will, in many cases, appreciate in value. So while we doubt that many people put ‘tiny house’ on their wish list, we’re sure no one would mind receiving one of these.
