Good deed needs doing, and awesome are the people who step up to do the little things within their own local community to create positive change.
Creating change on a global scale is really frickin’ hard. It’s beyond reach for me, personally, to think I can just get up and change the world. And it was the realization of the monumental scope of the wrongs going on in our world that made me take a careful look at how on God’s green Earth I could actually make a difference. My personal answer, and by all means this may vary depending on who you are and what you have to work with, was to focus my attempts to better our world in a more direct, local way.
Since this epiphany, I now get off my lazy ass and go and do stuff HERE, in my local community. Little stuff. I don’t donate money to feed the starving children in southeast nowhere, but I sure as hell donate canned food to feed local hungry children at the nearest Elementary school.
So one of the key purposes of this site will be to share opportunities for our followers to get out and do little stuff that’ll get you a thank-you, a smile, a free high-five, or whatever. Because the direct feedback of being thanked by the people who will benefit from your good deed is an immediate positive affirmation that sticks and encourages more good-deed-doing in the future.
