Why Grassroot Charities Need (More of) Your Attention During Periods of Uncertainty

As children, we’re taught to share and take care of each other. When and why does this change? Our society rewards those who take care of themselves first, and then help others. They give us that same message about oxygen masks prior to takeoff on planes. I don’t agree with this sentiment though. What if while we took care of ourselves, we showed others how to do the same? Can we not do both simultaneously? Even during periods of uncertainty others can learn so much from us when we are vulnerable and share our personal struggles. We often share the same goals, like providing the best care we can for our children.
