As humans we yearn to make a difference, to leave our mark. And most of us know helping better others’ lives has positive impacts on our own — making us happier, more balanced, and instilling a greater sense of purpose in the everyday. But it can be easy to get bogged down in the daily grind and miss the benefits to ourselves and our communities, that getting involved can provide.
Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Tiptoe if you must, but take a step.Naeem Callaway
And most of us don’t know where to start. So, we have few suggestions for how to begin, and start making a difference today!
Shopping locally is the trendy new way to create a one-of-a-kind neighborhood. This has many benefits, such as building relationships within the community and helping support the local economy, all while building a more vibrant and unified society.
Really, who doesn’t feel a bit more warm and fuzzy knowing that they’re supporting their neighbors?
So, take the initiative by adding a local item to your TIWIW wish list and share. It doesn’t matter if it’s inexpensive.
With one donation you can save many lives, yet just one patient could require multiple donors. For heart surgery it’s up to five. Leukemia treatments, as many as eight donors a week. Emergency care for a car accident can use up to 50. Every donation makes a difference in someone’s life, and what greater gift could you give?
So express a Wish to support a blood bank or fulfill someone else Wish on TIWIW by donating blood.
