Serve the ones who serve you, with love!

Act 10 of 21 #CoronaKindness Acts for 21 Days of #StayAtHome!Serve the ones who serve you, with love!“Never worry about numbers. Help one person at a time and always start with the person nearest you.” Mother Teresa.Have a heart of gold. Serve a steaming cup of tea or a hot meal to that one person who is the most over-worked yet the most neglected. If you open your eyes and look around you, you will find this person.

Cook a meal or do a chore for a neighbour who needs help.

Act 9 of 21 #CoronaKindness Acts for 21 Days of #StayAtHome!Cook a meal or do a chore for a neighbour who needs help.Kindness is as contagious as a smile, and it begins at home. Why not try to do both today? In these stressful times, let us spread sunshine, hope and happiness by being mindful of the people around us.Help out a neighbour in need by doing a kind deed. Cook meals for an unwell neighbour or get essentials for an elderly or help out someone in distress by attempting to solving their problem or just providing a listening ear.

Teach a fun skill and raise funds!

Act 8 of 21 #CoronaKindness Acts for 21 Days of #StayAtHome!It’s been a popular tradition to have some fun on April Fool’s Day by engaging in unusual, fun activities. Today can be your chance to induce some fun among your friends and spread joy around you. Invite your friends to learn a skill from you via a Google hangouts or Zoom session. You could teach them to play a musical instrument, cook, bake or simply dance, by charging a small fee. Collate the amount to raise funds for a Covid 19 cause near you.

Help Daily Wage Earners hit by Coronavirus

Many people who helped us in normal times are struggling today to pay bills. These include daily wage earners like rickshaw and taxi drivers, mall workers, maids, street vendors and others in the unorganized sector. CORO, a 30-year old NGO, works with these communities in Mumbai. They will distribute food packages, masks, sanitizers and soap to people who have been hit by the short-term closure of businesses. The amount needed is much larger and the Government will help eventually. But in the meanwhile. Let's help some of these people today.

Make a phone call to an elderly person or an old age home to check how they are managing their daily needs.

Act 6 of 21 #CoronaKindness Acts for 21 Days of #StayAtHome!Old age is second childhood. In that sense, we need to reach out to our elderly as much as we need to reach out to our children in these difficult times. They need to be nurtured, listened to and provided with a same sense of belongingness and community, as do your own young children.So pick up your phone and call up an elderly family member, a neighbour or someone in an old age home, and speak to them companionably.

Set up a time to teach a helper's child daily via WhatsApp call or phone call.

Act 5 of 21 #CoronaKindness Acts for 21 Days of #StayAtHome!It’s true that your house-helpers are your best support system. They walk long distances and work odd hours to keep your homes up and running. This lockdown must’ve made you realise more than ever before, that without them, your world will crumble.

Donate for food supplies to needy families.

Act 4 of 21 #CoronaKindness Acts for 21 Days of #StayAtHome!According to a BBC report, India's daily wage earners feel that hunger may kill them before the coronavirus does. Uncertain of their fate, millions fear they will soon run out of their already meagre food supplies. As Mother Teresa said, “If you can't feed a hundred people,then feed just one.”Make today, March 28, a day when you can stop the fears of at least one labourer from becoming a reality. Those who give are more blessed than the ones who receive.

Care in the Time of Corona!

Lately, our homes have become our offices. Our colleagues, who were our main source of interaction and our pillars of support during stressful work situations, are now working remotely. For many, the initial excitement of working from home may now be wearing out. In fact, it can be daunting to realize that it is not so easy to maintain the same level of productivity and creativity, working away from vital support systems. Working remotely can present many challenges especially for those whose work involves face-to-face discussions every day in order to arrive at the right choices. Not being able to garner such support can become overwhelming and distressing for them.

So, after a long week of working alone, battling to meet targets, number...
