Occupying the park for two months got people’s attention. Now the question becomes what are the answers.
Imagine taking the energy of banging drums and using it to hammer nails to build homes for the poor through Habitat for Humanity. Imagine using that energy to plant seeds and then harvest a million pounds of food for the poor via America’s Grow a Row. The great thing about these types of groups is that you do not need to have money to help. You volunteer your time to help others.
Grow a row is an idea in a small town that started with a father and daughter planting a row in their garden for the poor. The idea moved to a local farm that donated an acre of land. I would love to see this idea spread across the nation.
People helping people is the best way to make a difference. You’ll feel great too!
