We keep thinking about what we can’t do during this pandemic. But what if we started thinking about all of the things that we ca do? Especially those of us who are lucky enough to be able to work from home and now have financial worries—we are in such a position of privilege.
And it doesn’t have to be big things. Taking the time to discover Black creators on our preferred social media platform and amplifying their voices/business might seem like a ridiculously small thing for you, but it could mean the world to them. Switching from liquid dishwashing soap to solid soap might not stop global climate change, but it’s a small step towards a better world. Reaching out to neighbours and getting to know them—social distantly, of course!—can transform the entire feeling of your neighborhood for the better.
The little things matter and now is the time to put that to the test. So do your little thing and add it to mine, and together let’s make this world a better place.
