"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!" - Pete Seeger, in YES! Magazine
Put myself on calendar to provide team snacks for an extra soccer game.
Moments to volunteer. The work comes on game day.
If every parent of kids in youth sports and other group activities chipped in a tiny bit, providing snacks here, picking up equipment there, painting sets over there, life would be a lot easier for those who volunteer their time to provide leadership for those activities. On our teams, every family is donating snacks on an organized schedule that makes it easy for all of us.
