Healthy & Fruitful Activity to Make a Better World for Living
“The cure for anything is salty water—Sea, tears or sweat. The choice is yours.” Have you ever thought about the true worth of your sweat? Well, no currency can buy what sweat can. Especially when you toil for a cause close to your heart and existence as a human, your contribution to the planet becomes unfathomable.
If you can’t donate your blood or money, how about exploring the idea of donating your sweat!
The donation is not always about charity or community service. More often than not, you might be forced to contrive charity just for the heck of it. While it is easy to buy charity tag with money, it takes more than just that. It takes efforts, a plan, an idea and of course, volunteering.
Still wondering what this “special” donation is all about? You need not stash money through cheques and bills. It would have been easier otherwise, isn’t it! All it takes a few hours of targeted activity. What are your choices?
The sky is the limit. Donate your sweat to
Toil with farmers
Farmers reel under extraordinary pressure of tilling every inch of land available to them. How about going to the farms and learning the oldest occupation known to mankind? Be it rain or the sun, donating your sweat to farmers by helping them fix their machinery, pumps and cattle management does make a huge difference to productivity, and above all, their morale.
Collar cattle and stray animals
With no seemingly straight solution to control the population of stray animals on streets, it is imperative to help them out with proper food and shelter. If you love animals, this is your chance to make your sweat count. Find the diseased animals and collar them with vets and animal activists.
Spend a day with slum kids and street urchins
Street kids need directions and guidance to make their childhood productive. Donate your sweat in teaching them the perils of drug abuse, sex education, proper hygiene, and sanitation and craft techniques. Don’t just teach, but also offer them areas where they can use their skills effectively.
Plant more trees
Collective sweat donation activities can save the environment from deforestation, plastic corrosion, and water pollution. Plant more trees in barren lands. See how your sweat can drive green initiatives.
Brace up the cleanliness
Littered roads and blocked drains create chaos during monsoons. Drive a garbage collection campaign and sweat it out clearing the sewer lines. Identify open manholes and broken drain cages to prevent accidents. Recycle plastic bottles, wrappers and papers strewn across roads. A little sweat and the stretch of your neighborhood road begins to sparkle.
It is hard times for everyone. Water is a scarce resource now. Canal building and well construction require a plan and labour workforce. Not money. Turn the arid and dry villages into green belts with canal building activities before the monsoon.
It is chaos every morning and evening while you commute to the office. Have you ever thought about helping the traffic police sort the issue? Take a few minutes out and direct the traffic systematically as a Traffic control volunteer on some of the busiest roads.
Help the pedestrians cross the roads while the vehicular traffic blatantly breaks red lights at cross-turns. With no FOVs, elderly and school kids need assistance to cross roads. Sweat it out here.
Pothole ambulance management
Worried ? That the potholes will kill people on roads? Sweat an hour and help the local government fill up the potholes correctly. Identify, Seal and revise the health of potholes on a regular basis for a smooth and clean ride.
How does it work?
- Volunteer as an individual, family or a corporate group to help (donate your sweat) by specifying the date & number of hours you can spend.
- Connect with the closest group you can attend to & share the efforts
- Work at the farm, on streets and places where you can make a difference and create value out of your sweat.
Charity does begin at home, as you can always motivate your siblings, spouse, kids and parents on a mission. A mission that makes the world around you better, taking it an inch closer to the perfection we dream about.
