25 Free Ways You Can Help Improve Your Community and The World

There will always be challenges for humanity to solve.

Sometimes, challenges can seem very big. You might feel you can’t make a difference as just one person.

We believe you can.

We’ve seen the power of one person so many times. Our Partner Agencies are delivering critical services in our Simcoe Muskoka communities, and often, those services rely on a single person building a connection with someone else.

It’s the collective impact of the many seemingly small actions we can all take that creates the bigger change we want to see in our communities and the world.

Your actions and reactions can help strengthen the rising tide or create a roadblock. The choice is yours.

“Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together. And great things are not accidental, but must certainly be willed.”  – Vincent Van Gogh
