In order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to at-risk individuals in our communities, people around the globe have been asked to practice social distancing. But that doesn’t mean we can’t still be involved in helping others—and it doesn’t always require opening our wallets!

Below is a collection of EWC articles that celebrate ways that we can still be active members of our communities, keep ourselves busy, or just make someone smile! Whether it’s discovering ancient archaeology sites in Peru from your couch, helping the smallest members that live around you, amplifying the work that others are doing, or just brightening someone’s day, there’s still so much we can do to stay active while keeping our neighbors healthy.

Let us know how you’re spending your time during social isolation over in our Facebook group!

Share this circle with a friend to make their day! It’s one easy way to be #HelpfulNow
