If you are feeling helpless in your ability to give back, below are some creative ideas to support healthcare workers and those on the front-line of the global pandemic, with far-reaching results:
Newton’s third law comes to mind, with every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. It is a nice law that applies appropriately to volunteering, as there is a great ripple effect that occurs by being an example and inspiring the people around you to join in!
