When people think of Lent, they most often associate it with what they are going to "give up."  Though fasting is a pillar of Lenten penance, so is prayer and what is most often referred to as Almsgiving.  But almsgiving strongly suggests giving money.  Though lack of money is sometimes the cause of people's suffering, it is only part of the story.  Mercy is love's response to suffering -- all types of suffering, including loneliness and rejection.  In this podcast, Dr. Italy provides a few examples of works of mercy that all of can do, whether we have money to give or not.
