What have you done to help make the world a better place? What do you plan to do?
There are so many little things we can all do to make everything work harmoniously. We can compost, recycle, start after school programs, and so on. What have you done for your community? What would you like to do?
I think that many of us have the chance to make the world a better place. Whether it involves what you have mentioned, or just simply picking up trash when we see someone has loitered, we can all make a difference. However, I do think that many people feel limited on the amount of time that they have on their hands, so we may not always fulfill the need to help, in the ways that we wish we could. Work gets busy, many people have children and their children are most likely involved in after school programs. I speak for myself as well when I say that we can all find at least 1 hour or so a day or even 2 hours a week perhaps, to make a difference in our community.
and as an artist, hope for donations.
WHY - we're ... artists...
I agree, especially online for sites you love that have a "donate" button. If you're wealthy, buy your cousin's jelly, support your brother's business, help people out. You don't realize what $500 would mean to an artist or actor or small bus. owner
I write articles for abetterpeople an organization which is trying to shed light on human rights issues with real stories and real opinions instead of media controlled by corporations.
I am planning to put up a business to provide jobs not just for myself and family but also to my fellow countrymen. I hope I can eventuate my plans.
I am a Girl Scout Leader, helping to teach the next generation the importance of taking care of the environment. I lead by example. I teach them to leave a place better then when we arrived. I teach them to care for all of the earths creatures, even the humans. I teach them how to be responsible and make the right decisions.
donate useful items for those who don;t have it. The U.S. in general likes to hoard material things in their garage, why not let some of it go if you don't use it for years. Selling it online takes time and in some cases it has been fatal for some innocent folks.
When I was sixteen, I worked at Goldman's Dept store in Milwaukee, a small individually owned "dry goods" store on the "Southside". I worked behind the "stamp desk" and little old neighborhood women with their babuskas and black coats would come in with their tattered old stamp books filled with Goldman stamps and redeem them for $1. I noticed that if I smiled when "examining" all the pages of their stamp books "to make sure every page was filled" and spoke kindly to the women, they would walk away smiling and much more pleased than if I was hurried and distant. I had had a strong religious background having attended Catholic schools all my life, and it occured to me one day behind the stamp desk that my interaction with these little Southside Milwaukee women was what Christianity in action meant. Life has since brought me to an extremely cynical place; I struggle to survive emotionally and financially and I've become someone who has little time to spend with friends and family. However, whenever I DO interact with anyone, the lesson from Goldman's Department store plays out. It's hard-wired and it's the only thing I can manage to do right now to "make the world a better place." Hopefully, that small "contribution" at least makes a tiny difference.
I've done my recycling properly for years. I've turned lights off whenever leaving rooms, kept my heating off and worn extra layers to keep warm, turned the taps off when brushing my teeth.
I've also donated to the WWF for long time.
For my community, I've written letters of complaint to the council about various matters. That is a bit of a waste of time, because the council always send back a defensive and denial-heavy letter, containing reasons for not fixing anything in town!
What I'd like to do is publish one of my books, earn a lot of money, and donate lots more money to the WWF, and also to children's charities. So many people and places need our money - how on earth do we choose who to give to?!
Oh, the biggest thing I do is to spread good cheer, and smile as often as possible - every day!
By just being successful myself in all my endeavors such as Education, Profession, to mention a few and a successful mother to two academically and professionally successful married children who together give me five beautiful grandchildren, is for me a contribution that make the world a better place; not to mention teaching Values Education and other Social Sciences subjects for more than 20 years.
I give what I most have to give, which is not money or time or objects. I give inspiration, that helps people to admit and contemplate their dreams and nurture them. I am a songwriter and a dreamer, trying against all advice and doubt to pursue a dream that seems unrealistic to many, and to share my joy, insights and stories with others who are afraid to step out of their comfort-zones. And I'm rewarded by their honest gratitude.
