A friend was feeling uncomfortable with the idea of receiving a stimulus check.
“I don’t need it. I’m working. Others need it more.”
“So go find these others. Purchase food from local restaurants or local farms. Tip your servers or delivery people extra. Buy art. Get a CD from a local musician or that book from your writer friend – or buy ten and give them away to people who may become a fan. Frequent a small business. Pay the rent or electric bill for someone out of work. Buy towels, underwear, pajamas, twin sheets, or whatever else is needed for a homeless shelter. Give money to a local food bank.”
If you don’t need the money, help your local economy by doing good with it! You have the power to notice needs and meet them. Be a catalyst for positive change. Stimulate!
