    We, or more specifically my wife is helping my friend (Englishman in Germany) with a load of forms he needs to fill out.
    I wrote a hub in July last year "Living with Aneurysm"  for my long time friend Michael explaining about his wife's problem a few years ago, that she had. These days with everything coming together she now has Dementia and needs help.
    Living in Germany, Michael comes clear with most things, but it's the damn paperwork which is all in German that he is stuck with. His wife, although German doesn't know what's going on or have any idea what it's all about. So we drive over to his place when needed and help out as best we can.
    My wife also rings the different departments for things that she needs, also making contact with the medical staff dealing with her case.
    At the moment it's a case of waiting for the wheels to start moving.
    We help as much as we can and as they say every little helps.

    Here is a fun answer for your Ed. I am kind of an activist, and I am a preacher who preaches love. I raise really good children who contribute well. I pick up garbage on my hikes.

    So with all that said, sometimes I just shut up and listen.

    Why, answering  your question would be bragging and then ruin the thing(s) I have done.

    hmm well to be very particular, i helped arrange a charity drive in my university two months earlier and this month we are going to arrange a concert for charity purposes.
    Other then this, small tasks like picking up a piece of trash or helping out the elderly, helping people out with small everyday stuff is not something someone keeps a track of (at least i do not).
    I suppose just becoming an excellent Human being would be the single best thing anybody can do for humanity.

      For our family, teaching my boys to be better people and then help others be better by example. Improving humanity starts at home. After a big wind storm, my boys go out to clean up the neighborhood. Often including others to help.

    I've tried to raise my children to be good citizens and treat other people with respect. These are things we all can do in our everyday lives that can better humanity. The gesture doesn't have to be "big" or heroic. :-)

      I appreciate it, ahorseback. Being a parent is mostly a thankless job but we do it with love anyway! :-)

    I smile and wish a good morning to passers by, offer help when I can. More often than not it's met with a mortified glare but I like to think my general area is slowly becoming a friendlier place. Positive thinking I'm sure but that's good enough for me.
