We all want to ‘change the world’ a little bit, don’t we? Make it a better place to live in.
Nevertheless, most of the time, we do nothing, because we simply don’t know where to start. Yesterday sombody said to me: ‘If you’re part of the solution, you’re not part of the problem’. I don’t know the original source of that quote, but somehow it stuck with me. If we do just really small things on a regular basis, we’re part of the solution. We’re changing something. Here are some small ideas:
1 | Put some books aside you’re never going to read again and give them to Oxfam.
2 | Volunteer at your local soup kitchen for one hour every week.
3 | Babysit your friends children for free and give them the evening off.
4 | Buy a record on Noisetrade that gives the money away to a worthy cause (for example this one).
6 | Write a letter to somebody you know has been having a rough time.
