With our day-to-day activities being so restricted as of late, it feels as though there’s little more we can do to contribute to the well being of society other than stay at home and keep washing our hands. It’s human nature to want to help others in a more tangible way, and doing so is actually easier than you may think.
If you’re one of the lucky ones who hasn’t been financially impacted to the degree that others have (that is, your paycheque and lifestyle have remained relatively intact), there are some ways you can positively affect your community and the economy during this time. You don’t need to be an automobile plant or microbrewery to make a difference. Check out a recent Globe and Mail article by Rob Carrick which lists 27 ways that financially fortunate people can help out.
