It’s a wonderful day to make a difference in the world, because this Saturday is National Make a Difference day! It’s a perfect reminder to spend some time focusing on how to make the world a little bit brighter!\nHere at Hamama, we believe that even the smallest steps we take together can make a huge impact on the world. We want to encourage all of our Hamama growers to do one thing today that makes the world a little better.\nHere five small steps that you can take to make a difference in your community:\n \n1.) Help Keep your Community Clean:\n\nWhen you are going for your morning or afternoon walk, take a trash bag and some gloves and pick up any litter that you see. This is one small way you can keep the community beautiful while also taking care of the environment!\n2.) Volunteer at your local Pet Shelter:\n\nPets provide so much happiness to so many people. Unfortunately, not all animals have homes. Reach out to your local animal shelter to see if there is anything you can do to help. You could foster a pet, spend some free time socializing with the animals there (pretty sweet gig!), donate pet food or simply spread the word that there are many animals looking for a permanent home.\n3.) Vote:\n\nVoting is one of the most amazing privileges that we have. Your voice is powerful and deserves to be heard. When we vote, we have the opportunity to make positive changes in our neighborhoods! On November 3, 2020, make your voice heard and vote. Your voice counts in how our country is shaped. Make sure that you are registered and vote early if you can. \n4.) Give the Gift of Health:\n\nWhat’s better than a gift that keeps on giving!? Having vibrant greens in your home makes for a happy and less stressful environment. Gift a Hamama Starter Kit Gift to a friend, family member or co-worker! Our gift kit includes one reusable grow tray, instructions and three seed quilts. Giving is one of the best ways to make someone’s day. \n5.) Smile:\n\nDon’t underestimate the power of your smile! A simple smile to your neighbor, friend and\/or someone you don’t know can spread joy and happiness and make someone’s day. You never know what someone is going through and spreading a moment of cheer can make all the difference.\nMaking a difference in the world requires YOU! No matter how big or small. One of my favorite quotes is by Dr. Seuss. It says, “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” So go out into the world and care a whole awful lot!
