We are part of the way through Lent, but it is not too late to work in some meaningful acts of charity as part of your Almsgiving. To connect our sacrifices with the ultimate sacrifice made by Christ, you could make it a goal to use the Stations of the Cross as inspiration.
For example, Station I. "Jesus is condemned to death" reminds us to pray for those in prison. Station X. "Jesus is stripped of His garments" would be a great reminder to clean out your closet and donate what you don't need to charity. Station XIII. "Jesus is taken down from the cross" could inspire you to send a card or meal to a family who has lost a loved one.
I made this foldable to use with kids to show them the different ways they could take up their cross and follow Christ this Lent.
