ACT - Co-creation Toolkit - Five-Minute Favour
One of the ways to build a strong community is to add high value to others’ lives at a low personal cost. Doing one five-minute favour every day for someone can instil in us a habit that benefits you more than just the beneficiary. It can challenge people’s assumption that they have to choose between helping others and their own success. This quick activity will allow people to find ways of giving to others that don’t demand enormous acts of sacrifice. Bringing community members together to help each other has the potential to enrich their abilities to achieve their goals while building a stronger sense of team spirit and community. These favours can broaden and deepen your community’s relationships, and inject greater meaning and satisfaction into the project.
