19 Simple Ways To Love Your Neighbor
At the heart of Christianity is kinship, a sense of mutual connection and responsibility for one another. But just when our neighbors need it most, the new mandate of social distancing is challenging how we may normally practice kinship in times of crisis.
To help navigate this new landscape, our team has rounded up some easy ways you can support your community and foster relationships, even if you are high-risk or confined at home.
Here are 19 simple ways to love your neighbor in light of COVID-19.
1. Shop local: Call local businesses and restaurants to ask whether they’re open, and how you can (safely) support them. Order delivery, merchandise, or a gift card online for future use.
2. Give blood: Blood drives across the country have been cancelled, and the American Red Cross is reporting a severe shortage of blood. Contact your local Red Cross and find a location to donate.
3. Support the people that serve you: Go ahead and send an online payment to your hairdresser, babysitter, dance teacher, or anyone who regularly serves you or might suddenly be out of work. A little Venmo, PayPal, or Apple Pay donation goes a long way.
4. Tithe your essential supplies: If you were fortunate enough to buy extra toilet paper, wipes, disinfectant, and other essentials, consider donating 10% or more to neighbors in need, or local shelters.
5. Shop for a senior: Offer to help shop for food and pick up medications for seniors and others at-risk. Consider forming a group to help! Here’s how one DC woman is doing it.
Networking is still important. Here’s how to do it while you’re stuck inside
Written by Andrew Seaman
Your professional network is as important to your job search as your resume or profile. An active network can unlock opportunities and catapult you into a new job. The ongoing pandemic doesn’t change or lessen that importance. Yet, you may find that traditional networking avenues, such as coffee meetings or lunches, are out of reach while we’re all self-isolating due to the ongoing pandemic.
Fortunately, you can build relationships and activate your network without ever having an in-person meeting. In other words, don’t use self-isolation as an excuse not to network.
“Networking is important for a number of reasons,” said Dorie Clark, who is the author of Entrepreneurial You, Reinventing You and Stand Out. “The first, of course, is that it’s an important way to find out about job openings. A great many jobs are never posted publicly. If you’re strictly relying on publicly posted ads, you’d be missing out on a high percentage of opportunities.” Read more...
What to do if you get laid off
Many people are navigating layoffs and furloughs as businesses close their doors or cut services due to the pandemic. While people who are laid off may feel the urge to immediately apply to new positions, Biron Clark suggests in the most recent #GetHired that job seekers take a couple of days to strategize. The founder of Career Sidekick says it’s also important to investigate unemployment benefits, activate your professional network and ask for letters of recommendation. Job seekers may also want to use this time to think about their careers and where they want to be in a few years.
