So, how will you answer this call to action? President Obama is encouraging everyone to Renew America Together and there’s so much we can choose to do to positively impact not only our own lives, but those of others as well.
Perhaps you’re considering what you can to help the environment. Maybe you’re thinking of volunteering at a shelter orsoup kitchen. Could you volunteer to be a Big Brother or Sister…or spend more time with an elderly person you know?Maybe you’ll pick up litter in your neighborhood or take the advice of DC’s own Green America and become a responsible shopper. Will you reduce, reuse, and recycle more?
Whether you’re a professional organizer or not, will you help someone who needs help clearing out the clutter so they can live a healthier life? …and, if you are an organizer, will you incorporate more green practices in your business…or consider taking on a pro bono project?
I could go on and on, but really, we don’t need a president to tell us that it’s good to do positive things to impact our communities…but we do need to act because nice thoughts plus no Action equal nothing.
“Don’t underestimate the power of people who join together to accomplish amazing things. We can’t allow any idle hands. Everybody’s got to pitch in.” ~Barack Obama
