The British Humanist Association are urging people to make resolutions that count this year with Resolution Revolution. The initiative aims to encourage people of all ages to resolve to do something for others. Ideas for children include sweep a neighbour’s path, make a cake for Grandma, wash-up after supper, with the emphasis on things you do rather than things you can pay for or donate to.
The British Humanist Association hope this will be a way to get more people volunteering and doing things to help others to support a more cohesive society.
On the Resolution Revolution website people can get ideas for resolutions, see what other people are doing, make pledges and then tell everyone how it worked out.
This website has definitely inspired me to think more carefully about my resolutions for 2011 and face up to the fact I’ll never quit my horrible nail biting habit!
