Greed

Sadly, it seems that some people are taking advantage of this time of fear and uncertainty to be greedy:

Shops increasing their prices. People buying more than they need and hoarding it in their homes. Businesses deeming themselves “essential” and continuing to put their workers and communities at risk.

At times like this, we can give in to fear, panic and a tribal mentality – it’s every person or family for themselves.

Or we can choose to be generous.

We can be generous by staying at home and not putting our communities at risk. 

We can be generous by limiting what we buy to what we “need”, not simply what we “want”.

We can be generous with our time and actions to have a positive influence in our communities, to come through this time, not as individuals, but together.
