How old do I need to be to get a simple job?

right now I'm thirteen, and I really really really want to earn some money. like, not for personal necessities, but to donate for charity. I saw on tv and on magazines how poor and dirty kids around the world are, because they have no money or shelter. I feel that there aren't enough good hearted people around. so I want to ket a simple little job. but babysitting isn't an option, since I'm not good with little kids. I know that working for stores in the mall, you have to be around 14? 16? so I guess that won't work out either. I hear of tutors, and I'm good at math, but I can't so that really because of how I'm scared of other people's houses. don't judge.

walk dogs, sell baked sweets, and post it on your Facebook. if i had money i would send it to you, just cuz its awesome. in california you can start a work permit at age 14 if you keep your grades up. only like 23 hours a week. ask the school counselor. a flyer at your naborhood market may help also.

14 is a great age to start working at grocery stores, volunteer for animal shelters, and be a junior zookeeper.
