Week 2: #ValuesIntoAction
Think back to your promise - how can you make choices rooted in our values and take action according to the Guide Law in these times? With our challenge for week 2, take a video of yourself making a promise of doing something nice and positive for yourself, others or society during this time. Start your video by stating your name and country, and "I promise to...". Wear your uniform, and do your salute/ pose your sign so your sisters around the world can instantly recognise you. Share your video on social media with #PositivityPatrol and #ValuesIntoAction.
Week 3: #UnderstandOthers
Understanding and taking into account other people's perspectives and experiences during this time is crucial - we all need a bit of empathy and compassion! Think about someone that you haven't heard from lately. Communicate with them and ask them how they're really doing. Listen to their experience and share how this has helped you to understand them better with #PositivityPatrol and #UnderstandOthers. Before posting anything, please check with them that they're happy for you to share whatever you are posting.
