While some parts of the world are opening up, it’s not back to normal. If you are still staying indoors, working from home and feeling hemmed in, I hear you.
This is why I am always looking to share some inspiration to brighten our spirits.
Today, I’m sharing a website that I recently came across called Inspire Kindness at inspirekindness.com Their mission is to inspire the world’s largest kindness movement through actions, words and merchandise.
Kindness matters especially at this time. It is so heartening to hear stories of everyday kindness during COVID-19 from grocery shopping for the elderly, to landlords waiving rent for their tenants, to restaurants delivering meals to hospital teams, to sewing masks and donating for free, and more.
Inspire Kindness offers the following 5 Ways to Be Kind to Your Community during COVID on their blog:
- “Be a good neighbour. Check in with your neighbours to make sure they have what they need and to let them know they have people that care. Be especially aware of elderly neighbours and people that live alone. You know all that technology we have – let’s use it like never before to truly connect.
- Support local businesses. Order takeout or buy gift cards for later use. Send a Facebook message to remind them that very soon, we will all be back out and about again to visit their business. Keep your memberships going. Continue to give to your church and area nonprofits and give more if you can.
- Remember the caretakers. Find a way to say thank you to health professionals and first responders. Post word of encouragement on their social media channels. If you have to go to the doctor’s office or hospital, practice grace andunderstanding if they are short on time, resources, or answers.
- Be generous. Don’t take more than you need when it comes to groceries and supplies. Or if you do buy extra, drop them off at police stations, fire stations, and emergency rooms. If you eat out, leave a bigger tip than usual.
- Help people. From hungry kids that are missing school lunch to people in demand-shifted jobs like restaurant workers and event custodians, there will be people all over our communities that will be struggling. If you know them, think of what help could look like and reach out.”
Whatever acts of kindness you doing and sharing, no matter how small, it makes a big difference because are all connected and seek connection.
So, Thank you!
