These are the words of the wonderful Heather Small and I think they reflect the ethos of Busy Life. As I say on my home page, for me, what society needs are more little acts of kindness that can collectively result in the power to do good. So, I would like to record here the "little acts of kindness" that Busy Life supporters are doing that are doing good. For instance, have you volunteered at an event, been on a litter pick, walked someone's dog, or put the spare change from your shopping in a charity box? If so, I want to hear from you!! To add to this page, please either email me at Joanna@Busy-Life.co.uk or message me via our Facebook page. Please, note, all posts are anonymised and moderated to ensure they reflect our company ethos! I look forward to hearing from you! I hope you have done something today to make you feel proud.
With the Corona Virus now very much an unwanted visitor, the kindness of the UK population is overwhelming. I'm just going to list a few here. I'd like to give a special and huge shoutout to all those NHS doctors, nurses and support staff who are risking their lives, in continuing to practice, so that we can stay home and save ours. There are no words to express my gratitude.
