Spirit Day is coming.
This is a subject that is close to me, for lots of obvious reasons, but that's not important. What's important is that you reach out. Doesn't matter how much or how little, you don't have to quantify your actions. Just be in the know, be aware, lend a hand. Make the world a better place for it.
