This July, Repair the World is teaming up with an awesome organization called Ask Big Questions (an initiative of Hillel) to ask the big, burning question: Who is in your community? Today’s answer comes from another awesome organization, GOOD.
Since January, GOOD has been up to something great. They launched a list chronicling 50 building blocks of citizenship. Each week, they add a new item or idea to the list – all things you can do to be a better citizen, family member and – yep!- community member. Here are some of our favorites, and you can check out the full (in-progress) list at their website:
Citizen Building Block: Commit 1 Percent of Your Time to Service – we couldn’t agree more!
Citizen Building Block: Give Blood – save a life!
Citizen Building Block: Learn About Your Town’s Sister Cities – lots of towns have sister cities. Expand your community by learning about yours!
Citizen Building Block: Learn to cook a dish with a story. – Make something tasty and learn about it’s history and the people who make it along the way.
Citizen Building Block: Take a Staycation – Build your familiarity with your community by spending some leisure time in it!
