Coronavirus: Kindness during COVID-19

While we hear of discrimination particularly against healthcare workers and Asians, these are unfortunately and obviously due to the restrictions people are experiencing at this time.

It’s a mental health thing – that even domestic violence has gone up. Still, a pandemic or having a lockdown is no reason to speak ill or do wrong to others – but instead, help each other more.

Let’s see some ways we can get kindness into action.

Organized Donations. This is the most common thing for those who wishes to help would do, solicit financial contributions – in person or online. While this method would certainly help, there should be targeted recipients for this to make it more worthwhile or effective. It can not simply be for the general public, like, this donation is for all poor families. Instead, it should be the proceeds of this effort, for example, would go to all the unemployed of XXX city – or the struggling employees of YYY company. Something like that.

Crowdfunding should work especially in times of COVID-19. We are human, after all.

Why?

ONE. Simply classifying poor families from not could miss out aid for those who are actually struggling but not classified as poor. This classification could happen because their ‘irregular’ income was overlooked – that they struggled more when the pandemic happened. TWO. Some ‘groups’ or areas could be more favored by organizers, therefore, favored groups could be given more aid instead of those who needs it more. THREE. Those who could actually contribute much more would just dip their conscience in a pool of little donors by giving breadcrumbs. The rich and the elites should have a different ‘donation box’ as in a separate organization receiving their donations to see who ‘really wants to help’ as per their net worth. After a cut off, only then would these contributions be divided among the recipients.

Food Packs. Another common way to help during COVID-19 would be through food packs. Problem with this one though is that you would need a lot of help in packing, carrying and transporting the food. And if these are cooked meals, then you only help in one serving. Now, while canned food and other staples are good, you should watch out for possible dishonest volunteers or officials who could pocket some of the goods which could reduce the allotted pack for donation.

Food aid for now – livelihood after the pandemic.

Sheltering the Homeless. We do not really hear many who does this. As even when COVID-19 was still nonexistent, the homeless was generally ignored – even by governments. But we are in the time of a pandemic and leaving the homeless on the streets would only make matters worse.

While there are business owners who took action in using their kiosks to shelter the homeless, terminals could be a better option for the fact that travel is still restricted. Not to mention the cleaning facilities it has and the number of people it could accommodate.

Giving Alms. Just like sheltering the homeless, sadly, beggars are ignored by most – and that some governments even have an anti-mendicancy law. It’s like being poor is a crime!?

Okay, teach a man to fish and you feed him for life – then why not give them livelihood? Give short, practical training then give them jobs. Easier said than done? No. Governments and the rich just find it too much work. Okay, there are already NGOs for this, then again, there’s a pandemic that ‘begging’ only showed that donations and support are still lacking.

Check on your friends, relatives and connections. This is as easy as giving a phone call or sending a text message – or even emailing the people you know. Especially since we are in lockdowns, many could be stressed due to financial problems. Ask how they are holding up. Offer them help – whether money, a remote job or a referral.

Do not worry about a reduction in your own cash flow. Remember, what goes around comes around.

Debt relief or Grace period. Even institutions are offering this, how much more between individuals? In fact, there are even laws to this that governments have at this time, like, extended deadlines on house rentals.

One can not just pressure someone who owes him to pay since everyone is on the same boat. We are on lockdown. You can not just say you need the money because you are also being pressured to pay. That’s insensitive. And if you evict him because he owes you, that’s inhumane.

At this time, the only expenditure most households have is just on food. No tuition fees to even worry of since there are no classes. Besides, not everyone even spends on gas to run errands but many just walks. Meanwhile, for areas who just eased their lockdowns, would workers get paid immediately upon returning? No. So pressuring those who owes you when they are still struggling is inconsiderate.

If you worry about your cash flow, then do not indulge in your food. Cut costs. Do not live on pre-lockdown meals. Learn to adjust. It’s part of life.

The world has enough for everyone. Learn to coexist. Be helpful rather than insensitive.

Neighborly Help. Even the Holy Scriptures says so, “Do not forsake your friend or a friend of your family, and do not go to your relative’s house when disaster strikes you — better a neighbor nearby than a relative far away.”

This is true whatever religious sect one may belong to. Better a neighbor nearby than a relative far away as immediate help could be given. And so, be that good neighbor. Do not hold grudges. Do not even listen to rumors about you, but only when it comes from talking face-to-face with the rumor-mongerer himself. Dislikes and misunderstandings are normally just the result of lack of communication.

At the end of the day, be sincerely helpful and considerate even after this pandemic. Remember, there is a God and there is what we call ‘karma’.

Income Opportunities: Basic Needs. Health. Online Jobs.

Many misfortunes actually happen due to lack of cooperation. Due to wrong competition. Due to lack of faith, therefore, due to lack of foresight as well as understanding. And so, if only people open their minds to what really happened in their lives, to how things could unfold — then surely, they wouldn’t even blame especially their partner for whatever situation they are in. That’s life.

Good thing even in your deepest needs, we got you covered. To be debt-free and prospering, you just got to change your mentality.

Simply put, getting out of your hole is a matter of accepting that ‘we are all in this together’ — therefore, helping each other which is also known as ‘networking’ is the key to financial independence. Hmm… Ready for all the opportunities now?

BASIC NEEDS

The most common business in the country has been a ‘sari-sari’ store. It’s good. You get some extra income; but what if there’s just too many sari-sari stores, how long could you exist? And if you do, it must be on an almost break-even scenario. Result? You would have to close down, or continue and hope that more people would buy instead of going to your store for credit.

Here now is an opportunity for you to get out of that rut. How about joining a ‘networking grocery business’?? Here, you get a discount on products (which you use daily and could sell if you wish) and as how Planet Mobile is structured — ‘get paid whenever you refer loyal customers to earn with us and earn more whenever they buy these products or services’! Sounds good?

HEALTH

Indeed, there’s just too many supplements and health products around — then again, the difference is really in the contents. That’s what you are actually paying for. And that’s what it says about its healing properties. Now, depending on your body’s needs — that should be your basis in choosing what supplement to take. Thus, many as they are, they are still different in many ways.

So, if only not to be confused, if only to maximize its health benefits — it’d certainly be better to choose organic with the most powerful antioxidants there is. In this case, not only would you be healthy but you’d earn handsomely, too. Click Here for more!

ONLINE JOBS

Seriously, what is new with needing a job? After all, we do need some form of income generating activity — may it be through business or employment — to survive and do things we like. But still, how many are in fact ‘open-minded’ enough to grab such opportunities?

See?? There’s no something for nothing unless you’re family. To be able to thrive, you need to do something about it — whether give time, money or effort. Everything has a price.

If you shy away even at the first challenge of any activity then how could you climb your mountain? If you turn your back upon hearing things that are not to your liking — then how could you even attain anything worthwhile? Makes sense??

Opportunities could only be understood when you learn to weigh what’s at stake — with all your negative perceptions. And so, you’d only know its real value if you are patient enough to dig until you reach the bottom of things. A window of opportunity has opened..

YouTube Review: World’s Toughest Job

Mother’s Day may have been 10 days ago but our featured YouTube video of the week has certainly done a great job to remind us how lucky we are to have Moms.

The World’s Toughest Job – #worldstoughestjob by CardStore made not only a funny but a heartwarming video about what moms actually do yet are underappreciated. While over 20M views is nice, sharing it with people we know would be better.

Yea, as American Greetings suggested – how about making a card for your mom this Mother’s Day? But guess, that’s even too easy with all the sacrifices she’s done for us..

..instead, if moms could give all her time for us then why not do our best of not disappointing her 365 days a year? Let’s make her proud while there’s still time. And show our appreciation by giving her some quality time as well.

Being a mom is tough – let’s do our share to ease it a bit.

Wine… Anyone?

At the end of the day, it’s certainly good to take even a shot of your favorite wine. All those stress and pressures at work bottled up — and now ready to be poured, and consumed. Yes!

Oh besides, bet you know about the health benefits of wine intake, huh? Good for the heart, a powerful antioxidant and all those stuff. So, it even adds more to that pleasure of taking a shot.

And the best wine is ...
And the Best wine is…

But wait. I didn’t say get washed up everyday — how about work, or school? Discipline is key here. Don’t get drunk unless it’s a weekend.

Really, don’t just be in a hurry to gulp. More so, while there are advantages in having a drink — you also got to be cautious in filling your belly. Just like exercising — don’t push it too hard if you have not sweat it out for awhile. Take it nice and easy… and work your way up gradually until you get the load that suits you.

And if you don’t really drink — better stay still. Otherwise, just have a sip for starters. This makes it more important to understand a wine’s content and your body’s limits. Right, not to take out all the fun but we do have limits — so, choose your wine well.

Fortunately, and many times, your palate just knows the Best wine for you…

Enjoy!
