During our weekly staff meeting at Claycord.com, we were chatting about serving the community. As we were brainstorming, we came up with something that will hopefully put a positive spin on a somewhat negative World.
Since Claycord.com gets over 1.2-million+ page views a month, we thought it would be a huge mistake if we didn’t include you in our plans. You’ve always been so thoughtful when asked to volunteer, or when we raise funds for sick kids, schools, fire victims, etc. This plan won’t cost anybody a dime, and you can include it in your daily activities. It will be so easy to do, and believe us, you will feel good about it each & every single day.
This is what we’re going to do.
Each day, we are going to ask you to do something. It’ll be something easy, and like we said, it won’t cost a thing. For instance, on Monday, we might ask you to pick up at least one piece of trash and throw it away, and on Tuesday we might ask you to smile at somebody and say “hi”. Or, we might ask you to watch your speedometer a little closer and be an alert driver. We would love for everybody to take part, but we know that’s impossible. Even if just 1,000 of you smile at a person each day, or pick up a piece of trash each day, that’s 1,000 smiles that might turn somebody’s day around or save somebody’s life, and that’s 1,000 pieces of garbage that won’t end up in our waterways.
We should all be doing these things everyday anyway, but sometimes we just need a little reminder, and this is why we came up with this idea.
We’re not looking for pictures of what you do, and we aren’t looking to give or get credit. We just want to make our community a little nicer, and more positive.
These Days of Service ideas will all just be suggestions, but hopefully some of you will include these suggestions in your daily life, and who knows, it might make all of us better people.
Sometimes we’ll repeat the ideas (like picking up trash), but we’ll try to come up with new ideas as much as possible. Also, some might not pertain to you. We might have some suggestions that have to do with BART riders, people in retail, etc.
Do you have any ideas of meaningful and easy things we could suggest that people could do each day to make a difference? Remember, we want to make these suggestions as easy as possible so more people take part in the Days of Service.
We will be posting one a day on this page, and also on the very top of the main Claycord.com page, below the main logo (look now).
Thank you in advance for making a difference and serving our community.
