Now is the Time to Step Up
Now is the time to reflect on how we could respond. Each person has something to unique to offer . As we see the news and updates, sometimes we might wonder what we could do to help. I would suggest that every person who is able to help, could do so with their unique skills and strengths. …whether it is to check on each other, set up virtual calls, or even make masks or donate food and money to local pantries. If you are one of the fortunate ones, with a job that allows you to work remotely and have access to internet, here are some ways you could help with your professional skills: If you’re skilled in: 1. project management, perhaps organize and manage a project for the needs of your community organization(s), connecting those who need the resources, with those who are interested in helping in some way. 2. Communications, perhaps help through social media, emails, or even a website, to communicate needs to the wider audience. 3. Sales or marketing, perhaps help in creating strategies for the businesses to reach out to new audiences in an online capacity. ..the list goes on and on.. Each person and action is impactful. no action is too small. One big reminder in this, is how each person has a gift and how we are truly interconnected.
