1. Penguins on a Field Trip
Today when we are in quarantine and we tend to be enclosed similar to animals in the zoo. An unthinkable yet heartwarming incident took place in Chicago, where employees of one of the beautiful tourist attractions – The Chicago Shedd Aquarium decided to take Penguins on a field trip. The view was mesmerizing as the penguin seemed to enjoy the trip to the Amazon rising, Rotunda, and a trip around the pleasing view of dolphins.
2. Gratitude Towards Healthcare Workers
In the situation of lockdown, where we are advised to be isolated, perform social distancing, staying at home, and washing our hands regularly. There are some people for whom this phase is not that easy. They are the healthcare and emergency workers who are not only working day and night for the people who are hospitalized but also risking their lives by working round the clock for the people who are ill. To show them gratitude, mass applause from every individual’s home in the country has been given to the healthcare and emergency workers. As you are reading this article, this is an appeal from us that these healthcare workers are putting their lives at risk just to ensure that we live a healthy life. So, this is our moral obligation to stay at home and support these brave human beings.
3. Music Industry Offering Online Concerts
It is a hard time for many sectors of society right now. One of them is the music industry. Given that, the small and mid-range acts mainly earn through live concerts and for surviving in this difficult phase, the musicians have started performing live concerts online. The earnings through the digital platform are not sufficient. So, to help them get through the crisis, people are invited to
make some donations for them online. It is a win-win situation as you are getting to enjoy your quarantine through these online streaming performances and in return they are getting a donation for their survival. Also, some popular artists who are financially stable such as Miley Cyrus, Chris Martin, and John legend are offering free performances for the charity.
4. Volunteer Cards
Due to lockdown, some people who are ill and suffering from cough & cold are in a difficult situation as they cannot move out of their homes for the treatment. Not only the ill ones but this phase of isolation is also difficult for the people who are living alone. The people who are stuck at homes may begin to feel isolated and lonely. This can affect their physical and mental health. So for such people, “Viral Kindness Cards” are being distributed physically and virtually in the neighborhood, communities, and societies. These cards help people to connect with others for running errands or simply for having a conversation. This is a great initiative in these times of hardship.
5. Libraries into Pantries
We are talking about the little free libraries which are usually situated in the corner of the streets where people can contribute or borrow books. It is a small or midsize library. This concept became popular through social media and there around 1 lakh such libraries in the world. These little boxes of kindness are helping people in the pandemic by serving food to the needy ones.
The concept is the same, what was with books. People can leave what they can and take what they need. Such small steps by people bring a big change in the lives of those who are suffering.
