4 Actions You Can Take Right Now To Make Your Community A Better Place

Often, people tell me that they truly want to make impact in their communities — they just don’t know how or where to start. I remind each and every one of these aspiring changers that even the most simple, kind interactions can make impact that lasts a lifetime. Whether you’re donating your time, money or a combination of the two to your favorite causes, all it takes is a small act to positively impact others. Check out these four actions you can take this very second to spread kindness, happiness and philanthropy in your community and beyond.

  1. Complete a Community Beautification Project — Picking up litter across our local communities is one of my favorite ways to make impact on neighborhoods, creating a safer environment for residents, visitors and wildlife. Too often, litter is improperly disposed of in popular walking and driving areas, leading to trash accumulation on the sides of roads and greenways. That litter also affects the local environment and can even damage a clean water supply and surrounding animal life. For example, an estimated 14 billion pounds of trash is dumped into our beautiful oceans every year. If all we all aspire to make impact in the smallest of ways by cleaning our communities of litter, our big blue planet will be a much more welcoming home for every living being.

Regardless of what inspires you to make impact in your community, it is important to remember that science proves we receive our own life blessings ten-fold when we make the decision to give back to others. Take a step toward a more fulfilling life by pledging to make impact every single day through genuine acts of kindness.
