I came across a fabulous initiative while watching “George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight” yesterday evening. The initiative is called “My Giving Moment” . The idea for the initiative has come from Canada’s Governor General, His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston. The core idea is that if we all give a little, through time or talent or resources, that we can make our communities and country a better place.
Some of the ideas are big, but many are just little things that can make our communities a better place and in turn make our communities stronger. One of the easiest “moments” is to bring your neighbour’s garbage can back to their house for them on garbage day….it’s that easy. Under “Find Your Moment” there are many suggestions of how to help out your community, and if you wish you can even add your own “moment”. There is even a fun scoring system if you wish to participate.
I really wanted to share the link as it is a fabulous idea. The more that participate the better our communities will be.
