“In times of stress, the best thing we can do for each other is to listen with our ears and our hearts and to be assured that our questions are just as important as our answers.” – Fred Rogers
1. Be Generous.
You have a gorgeous garden; share your tomatoes and your harvest or your preserves from your beautiful lemon trees. A little goes a long way when it comes to generosity.
2. Check-in with the Elderly.
Whether they are friends, neighbors, or relatives, this is important given the amount of isolation spent during the pandemic.
3. Donate Blood.
It’s not something we automatically think of, but a pint of your own blood could save lives.
4. Make Introductions.
Be the first person to reach across the aisle and connect with others.
5. Share Your Resources.
If you have a neighborhood watchlist, share it so you’re all on the same page.
6. Sharing Is Caring.
If you know how to get reservations at the hottest restaurant, why not share it?
7. Support Local Business.
After the coronavirus, who doesn’t want local businesses to not only survive but thrive? Sign me up!
Not everyone has the time, but you can volunteer your resources and suggest others who may be able to help.
9. Share an Article.
If you read something that you think is important to a friend or client, pass it on. It’s easy with one click on a computer.
10. Spend Time with Others.
When we give, but it doesn’t always mean it has to be a monetary gift.
LIFESAVERS. My friends who volunteered their time at a party for my sister.
