How are your programs celebrating the holidays safely during this time? Please share your ideas on this thread!
At OVS, we're working on safe, virtual ideas. One of them is "The OVS Elves." For 10 days, all staff will receive an email in the morning from the OVS Elves prompting a good or kind deed. These can be internally for the agency, within their own homes or communities, or even by visiting the website FreeRice and doing some triva benefitting the World Food Programme. Some examples of what we may encourage are:
Going analogue for an evening: as we're all zoomed out from working and schooling remote, turn off devices and spend an evening connecting with family (or even just yourself!) by having a game night, reading a book, or chatting with a friend
Buying a coffee for the person behind you in the drivethrough
Giving a coworker a compliment
