This year more than ever we all need to be uplifted; before we uplift and impact help others we must help ourselves.
Your options are only limited by your imagination. Your contribution could be as simple As writing reviews for your favourite local spot, writing a thank you card for our frontline healthcare workers or even a $25 donation to any of the organizations that support our community. In previous years we have seen clothing, toy, and bottle drives. Blood donations, food donations and community clean up. Think about what you(and your team) are comfortable with and strive to make it happen. Your support will uplift those around you. Giving back is contagious, like a smile is infectious!
We provide a list of some of these organizations on this site. Beyond that, we encourage everyone to give back in ways that are meaningful to them. Is there an interesting or creative way that you can leverage your time, talent, or treasures? You have the opportunity to contribute in any way that you can. Every effort, big and small, is helpful.
Do what you(and your team) feel comfortable doing. With the best interest of everyone in our community and the world, stay within your comfort zone and think creatively on ways that you can make a difference. There are a multitude of different ways that you would be able to show your support in ways that keep everyone safe.
Whether you are a large corporation, boutique shop, or solopreneur; all are welcome to join in on the good. Interested in participating? Contact us at email@example.com and we’ll help get you started!
Please feel free to support as an individual. We could all use a little more good and every little bit helps.
