A collective of individuals and businesses bringing about positive change.
We are all part of community and every single one of us has a role to make it a happy place to live. We are responsible for our own thoughts, words, choices, actions and behaviours which shape the world around us. An Hour For Others is about bringing the best of ourselves into the world and creating a positive change in the communities we live. No one will ever come along with a magic wand to make our lives better, the magic wand is unity, compassion, respect, kindness & love and we each have it in us.
Many people go through really dark times for various reasons when they feel all is lost, having a community network ready to step up and support them in their hour of need is the world we should all want to see and be a part of, it is the world we are creating at An Hour For Others. Even the smallest amounts of our time, our skill, kindness, compassion and togetherness changes lives and changes our world for the better.
For many others in our communities a lack of self belief, low confidence, poor physical and mental health, worries, fears and stresses has a really detrimental effect, not just on the individual but on the whole family and the wider community. For them our skills some time or a kind act can create a huge positive change in their life and give them the belief, confidence, tools and empowerment they need to take ownership of themselves and live life to their amazing full potential. Our help is often the catalyst for them to pull themselves out of poverty and limited self belief to go on to live happy, successful lives which in turn helps our communities thrive. There has to be a willingness, belief and determination in the individuals to want that change in their own lives for our support to be worthwhile.
