Be a Hummingbird—And Do What You Can Do

You can only do what you can do. And it is so important that you do it. This beautiful short video featuring the words and wisdom of the fierce Kenyan woman leader, Wangari Maathai, reminds us that even when the odds seem stacked against us, we can do something. Every drop counts. Every conversation counts. Every time we stand up for kindness and justice, it counts.

What can you do today?

If those around you mock you or suggest you stop or say that your efforts are futile, ignore them. Keep going. Remember Wangari’s wisdom. History is littered with stories of people doing little things and making big differences. We’ll share more of those on this site—they are stories that haven’t been heard or shared enough—and we’ll fill our reserves of inspiration, courage and resilience so that we can do what we need to do.
