We are living through a defining point in the history of our planet, and the only thing that is certain right now is that change and uncertainty will continue to define our lives for some time. It is safe to say that the world will never be as we knew it to be just a few months ago. In itself, this may not be a bad thing, and we have a unique opportunity to rewrite the story of humankind’s modern colonisation of Planet Earth, and to redefine what it means to live in harmony with each other and sustainably with Mother Nature, going forward.
Today is GivingTuesday, an opportunity for people around the world to stand together in unity – to use their individual power of generosity to remain connected and heal.
“GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven years, it has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
Whether it’s making someone smile, helping a neighbour or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving some of what we have to those who need our help, every act of generosity counts and everyone has something to give.”
