If that sounds daunting, don’t worry: we have all the advice and support you’ll need to make it happen, together, whether your goal is big or small. Sign up for the WE Families newsletter, which will kick-start your plans for doing good with quick and easy activities, advice and inspirational stories of other WE Families.
If you’re finding it tough to carve out time for your chosen causes, try these scientifically proven tips for shifting your intention into action—whether it’s to fundraise for the first time, to be kinder to the environment or any other cause you choose. In a few weeks, those actions will become as natural to your crew as breathing!
