"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

Jump Start a Fellow Motorist

The project:
Offer a jump start to a fellow motorist whose battery was kaput.

15 minutes or so

Why bother?
This is a simple roadside service that can have devastating effects if you blow it. But my dad taught me right, and emphasized the danger of doing it incorrectly. I always go in wary.

Worth it?
Yes. It only took me a few minutes, and saved the other driver lots of time. Even with the auto club service, the wait can be lengthy. What was in it for me? A smile and word of thanks.
