“Be the change you want to see in the world.”

Obviously, this is not a Bible quote, but it’s still a powerful one. (Fun fact: it’s attributed to Gandhi, although he didn’t say it either.) It inspires us to make small improvements to our lives and our communities, which can accumulate into bigger changes world-wide. Do you know any good platforms to multiply one small change into many? How about the internet?

People love online challenges. Some are silly, some are serious, but a lot of these challenges have spread over the internet like wildfire. Below, we’ve listed a handful of challenges (or just calls to action) for you to inspire your online community to spread positive change.

  • Leave a nice note for someone to find. This can be a parent, sibling, neighbor or stranger.
  • Pick up 10 pieces of trash (preferably in addition to your own).
  • Say, “Thank you,” to five people; thank the check-out clerk for bagging the groceries, or the Amazon driver for delivering your package.
  • Read a book to your parent or younger sibling.
  • Hold the door open for someone.
  • Save the planet by refilling your water bottle instead of opening another bottle.

This list is meant to give you some ideas. Feel free to add to it and spread the word on your social media accounts, your website and in your church’s newsletters.

Keep the positivity going!
