DO SOMETHING — Links from D8
If you forgot everything else I said, I hope you remember the most important part — DO SOMETHING. Whether small or large, you can make an impact in your school, neighborhood, or city by simply identifying a problem and working toward a solution. Remember, you're the expert where you live; you know the people, the problems, and the resources of your neighborhood.
Add these resources below to your tool belt as you try to love your neighbors. There are ways to connect to organizations, plans for tackling common problems, and some ideas for ways to spruce up your town or neighborhood.
