Fixing feelings of futility

  • Collective effort such as crowd-funding — a million people each giving $10 goes a really long way to solving a problem (e.g. creating sustainable work opportunities within an impoverished community)
  • Collective effort such as a demonstration of care — all being encouraged to get involved in a specific project (e.g. a government declaring a certain day a public holiday for every citizen to be involved in picking up plastics on beaches, in rivers and streams and from gutters within/close to their respective communities)
  • Collective effort such as an offering of compassion — reaching out to those who find themselves in less-fortunate positions than the rest of us (e.g. knitting and/or donating blankets to the homeless, especially for the winter months)
