I selected the phrases for my coloring book to say what I thought might be most important to others within the activist community. But because the coloring book simply has the coloring pages without commentary, I thought I might use this venue to elaborate a bit on why I chose to include what I did.
“I will use my talents for good.”
So many of us struggle to find the best way to contribute, even when we clearly see the causes which need our support. Our resources are finite, particularly when it comes to money and time, and not everyone has what it takes to be directly involved with a mission or movement on a regular basis.
But we all have talents. We all have those things we enjoy doing, those skills we love to use, and the best place to start making a difference is to use those skills and talents.
Sometimes our hobbies and our causes can be combined. Sometimes we can use our skills to raise money. Sometimes our abilities can be put to use to help the organizations who then help people in need. There is a place for all of us.
