Now is the perfect time to demonstrate how our actions can positively impact others. Let’s explore how to brighten the day of seniors, single mothers and the overall community by using your phone.
Most senior citizens spend their days by themselves. An absolute delight to them would be a knock on the door to drop off a handmade gift, pay them a surprise visit or offer to help them, including getting their mail, walking their dogs and shoveling their driveway. If you cannot see them in person, a phone call to see how they are doing will often make their day.
Many single mothers do not feel as supported as much as they should be. If one of your friends is struggling to balance motherhood and life, why not lend them a hand? Be kind and ask which chores around the house need to be done. Given it is winter, this could mean chopping firewood, cleaning the gutters and showing them the latest Disney+ or Netflix videos to stream to help put their kids down for a nap or bedtime.
Where you live deserves attention. Just like people, communities can benefit from a charitable action. Consider organizing a park or beach cleanup with your neighbors. Plant an herb garden or volunteer at the pound to walk four-legged community members.
A phone call demonstrates that someone is on your mind. This may be the greatest act of kindness – seeing another person as their best possible self. Pick up your phone and shine your light on others.
