Everything is something! Large or small. A grain or grandioso. There are no limits on either end of the scale.
Of course, the majority want to do ‘something’ to help during our COVID-19 sabbatical (for want of a better word!) but deciding what that something is isn’t always as easy as it sounds. Or is it?

You can offer a discount, or simply just an ear! You can bake a cake or go outside each Thursday to clap and cheer! Anything is something and equally as important, simply caring is making a difference to someone.
Don’t be put off by thinking you can’t lavish an amazing gift of fortune on someone you feel needs it more than you – we are ALL in this together.
Do what you can, and if everybody does the same, that’s what makes it huge! Then all we’ll need is a great big melting pot, big enough to take the world and all it’s got! Cue the needle for Melting Pot by Blue Mink!
For instance, New World Business Centre have donated a 50% reduction in rent to each of our physical and virtual tenants for the next three months in the hope that it provides them with options they may not have realised they had when we entered these unchartered waters.
The ‘Be Kind’ ethos has evolved of late. Being kind rewards others, but you need to be kind to yourself too, that’s your reward.
It’s about all of us now, not just the select few, we are without exception here (at least we should be).
