Do More in Your Community

With recent events leading to widespread discussions about activism and the internet, I’ve been thinking about what people can do in their communities to raise awareness about the issues that impact their lives. I mean in addition to taking to hashtags, Facebook, and other homes for “slacktivism,” there are real physical actions you can take to help foster change in your community.

There are many classes of people that can benefit from organized help, including the homeless, the elderly, and children. Organizing events to help a group of people can do a lot to raise awareness of the problems that group faces as well as brighten someone’s day. It doesn’t have to be anything major. I once went to a video game tournament at a local library. It had a great turnout and all the kids had a blast. They got to compete and cheer in a safe environment and many of them made new friends.

There are tons of ways you can try to bring your community together. Building a community is not easy, but it’s well worth the effort, as a strong community where everyone knows and trusts one another can work wonders.
