We can make a big difference through small meaningful acts. The person on line in front of you that’s two bucks short and taking some food out of the basket to make it? Fill in the two bucks. Hold the door. Say a smiling good morning to people you don’t even know. Listen to a friend, be patient with a stranger. Little stuff. Instinctive. Things that are much more in balance with our entire being. Aware stuff. #RandomActsOfKindness #sometime #somelove #somenice

Ukraine is invaded by Russia and there’s this wonderful swell of empathy, giving and caring for other human beings. The individual generosity has been tremendous. People have opened their homes to strangers, donated food and clothing, even left baby carriages at the border to ease the burden on parents with children fleeing to save their lives. I’d like to believe this is inherently who we are, but looking around, we seemed to have strayed just a bit off course from the “care about people because they’re people” mantra. It’s welcome to hear “like” talk in the “dislike” culture we seem to be living in right now, and it recognizes that in the final analysis we need each other.

In the pictures of the Earth from satellites billions of miles away, it’s a speck of dust in a universe we haven’t yet even begun to scratch the surface of understanding. “There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than the distant image of our tiny world. It underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another…” Carl Sagan

They say there’s good in every evil. We’d go with no evil in the first place, but we know that’s not gonna happen, so if that’s an offer, we’ll take it. Because if there are good things that come as a response to bad, then there’s hope. It doesn’t have to take wars or disasters to be reminded that people need a helping hand. They live all around us, we just need to take a moment and look. But if the awareness of the need to help war refugees triggers a broader awareness that people who aren’t war refuges also need help, then at least let’s make that the good.

So, as we think of the people of this far away Country fighting for their very right to freedom, we believe we can be a part of that fight and the fight to help the people that live here. There are a lot of problems and a lot of need. We’re willing to donate 10% of our revenue to help. We think it’s that kind of important.

We can make a difference. A few bucks. Not much, but a great return.
