6 "Do-Gooder" Holiday Jobs That Pay

Want to give back while earning a couple of extra bucks this season? Have a look at these 6 "do-gooder" jobs.

"This season, retailers will hire about 755,000 people from October through December — roughly equal to hiring last year, according to an analysis by outplacement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas. Many of the holiday jobs will be with big-box retailers: For example, Wal-Mart is hiring 60,000 people, Macy’s 85,000 (for Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s stores), Target 70,000, Kohl’s 69,000 and Toys “R” Us 40,000.

But for many of Americans, working at a giant retailer stocking shelves or manning a register has about the same appeal as doing the dishes. For those who just need to pocket a few extra bucks, that may be fine. But some people wish to give back while earning that holiday-season cash."
