Not the network but it is a network. And a foundation. It’s still October which means it’s National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. There’s still time to volunteer, donate, lend a hand. A writing hand even. It’s easy to get lost in this mad world. There’s so much ugly going on. And it can take time to see the light in the darkness. The ray of hope. The color in the black and white. Which makes kindness and compassion even more needed.
What seems like the smallest way to help can in fact make all the difference. Donating will always be an option but it also costs nothing to be a kind person. A person who cares. You can volunteer in other ways with your time, attention and labor. By writing a few strong heartfelt words of encouragement, you can shine light on what seems like a hopeless time. Your words and my words can make all the difference for someone’s day, week, month, or year. What a powerful gift right?
If writing simply isn’t your bag, you can volunteer for packing kits, administrative projects, event preparation. This speaks to project managers everywhere. Maybe you’re strong in your speech giving skills. Speaking out to a crowd doesn’t phase you nor intimidate you. It inspires you, revs you up. Volunteering to use that strong voice can help. Projecting a beacon of hope as a motivational speaker—building a team of supporters.
Or you’re a video game guru and super savvy with tech. You’re a gamer, streamer, developer, or publisher. You can raise money by playing your favorite video game.
Whichever way you decide to serve, you are collectively helping to make a difference. Which I chose to do on this Saturday morning. A love for all seasons. A love for all time.
