There is no place or person that isn't being affected by COVID-19. It's time to choose #viralkindness over fear. See the things that we're doing at Wholesome Hub to help along with ideas of things you can do in our community.
I’ve lost count of the COVID-19 emails, updates and conversations I've had over the past two weeks. Everywhere I go. School drop off, down to the local shops, at work, there is no place or person that isn't being affected by this.
It has been both sad and disheartening to see the behaviour of certain people in shopping centres and supermarkets. People fighting over a packet of double ply, others physically and verbally abusing each other.
Is this really what we have come to as a community and society? Is this really how we cope during a time of crisis?
Not me, certainly not us here at Wholesome Hub and not Becky Wass, who has come up with a brilliant idea on ways we can help.
The card below, created by Becky Wass, says everything about how we should behave and get through this.
Checking in on your neighbours, sharing a spare roll of loo paper,
making some food for someone in need, are all ways we can the turn the fear and panic into strength and unity.
You can download your #viralkindness card here.
We all have the power to choose how we act and respond to this health crisis.
We have the power to choose kindness and love over fear. We can choose to use patience instead of panic. There is still a long way to go before we get over this challenge, so let's remember to stay calm and kind and to consider the people around us, especially those most vulnerable and in need.
