The fabulous folks I volunteer with at the Freelance Jungle have stepped up in their own unique way after the horrifying bushfires here in Australia. They’ve put together a new projected called Skills for the Bush, where self employed people from anywhere in the world can register to donate their skills and time to support a bushfire affected small business to recover and grow.
I know many of us are already donating and supporting causes. I also know that many of us feel helpless in the face of the sheer scale of the disaster and how long support efforts will be needed. Participating can be powerful way to reduce the impact of vicarious trauma, so whether you are driving supplies for fruit bats, buying quality face masks to donate to fire fighters, or getting involved with the Skills for the Bush project, doing something sustainable and connecting benefits everyone. ❤
