You may like to pick one suggestion each week or try to complete them all it’s completely up to you we just encourage you to ACT.
14th-19th March – Serve (Love) the World
-Get rid of graffiti. Check with your local council and chat with your neighbours, the school-run/coffee mums, the guys on the rugby team, and see who you can gather together to help.
-It’s easy to feel powerless in the face of large-scale injustice or to switch off when it comes to national or international events. Take stock of what you feel passionate about then write a letter, add your name to a campaign, or share something on social media.
-Make a practical difference today to those seeking refuge. Men, in particular, this is your time for a clear-out (groups supporting refugees often report that they receive low numbers of good quality men’s clothes).
-Plant a tree for the Jubilee – www.queensgreencanopy.org
- Try wearing the same clothes for a week - Around 2.6 billion people in the world lack basic sanitation. This will give you a taste of what life is like for them.
- Live Below the Line Challenge - More than 660 million people without sanitation live on less than $2 a day (about £1) Try living for five days with £1 a day for all food and drink to support people living in hunger. Find out more at www.thehungerproject.org.uk
