What is a contribution? A contribution is simple – it could be donating, educating, helping, being kind, volunteering.

 

What is a conscious-contribution™?
[These are what we will count] – It is taking an extra step, two, or three, to consider the impact of your contribution to the beneficiary and community as a whole.

What is a conscious-contribution™?  Ask yourself, what impact could or will my contribution have? Will it promote dependency or opportunity?

  • Donating clothes? Where are they going? Will it sabotage an industry?
  • Drinking with a straw? Will it be recycled or end up in landfill? Really?
  • Donating money to a worthy cause? How will they become sustainable?
  • Volunteering at a lion sanctuary in South Africa? Canned hunting is rampant; lions are bred to be hunted by tourist-hunters.
  • Building a school internationally? Who's job am I taking?
  • Providing Christmas dinner to a family in need? Who delivers it? Am I the hero, or the parent? What impacts will that have?
  • Buying a product from a social enterprise or company? Who are the beneficiaries? Do I support who or what they contribute to?
  • Giving money to a child in a developing country? How could I better use my funds for sustainability? [Hint: donate to organizations who have transparent structures in place to contribute to many. i.e provide dollars or books to a school.]
  • Donating to a refugee crisis? What do they need? [Hint, your donation of used clothes can bog down the system.]
  • Giving money to a person on the street? What am I perpetuating - dependency or opportunity?
  • Leaving the tap running while shaving? Watering your grass…again? Freshwater will never be an issue, said Cape Town.
  • Want to be a mentor? Who could benefit? Big brothers and sister always can use qualified mentors.
