What are the things we can do for our community?
I wanted to be more focus on this “Improving Air Quality in Your Community”. Who among us wanted to live in a community that suffocates us? A community where instead of fog in the morning, it is smug all trough the day and a community where breathing makes you sick, I wouldn’t want to live in that environment, do you? Let us help each other and find ways to clean our air. What are the things we can do for our community?
Depends on what you are good at. Depends on how much money and time you can spare to help the community? Also depends if the community is ready to accept help.
I have a friend who loves books, he has an extensive collection of books, children's books, comic books and science fiction magazines. He opened up a small free library near his house. He loves seeing children reading and smiling and enjoying his comic books. During weekends he has a book review for kids, he asks them to talk about what they have read and the kids' laughter and insight during those times are priceless. It is not a business. It is just free for kids. (Kids from 4 to 18 years old) He wants to promote reading as an enjoyable part of learning.
Connect with the community. Help make sure everybody has a good source of income.
You could make accommodations for people that ride scooters or bikes, walk or take public transportation to leave work 15 minutes earlier or arrive 15 minutes later. You could offer public transportation passes as a bonus or employment benefit or compensate workers that participate in a car pool. If you do any of these things I recommend that you make it public via social media or make a YouTube showing your featured worker or workers taking the subway or carpool to work and having a great time in the process. This is a good question. Maybe, we should all start putting social/community support activities into our formal business plans from day one?
