Start with Small Steps: Niver’s News: March 2022


March News 2022 with Lisa Niver & We Said Go Travel:

My thoughts are with the people of the Ukraine and their incredible president, Volodymyr Oleksandrovych Zelenskyy. Many people have asked how they can help–here are six articles I published with ways to HELP: 

#StandWithUkraine GoFundMe with Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, Airbnb and Flexport

Help the Ukraine media

Russia Ukraine War: ways to help 

Tim Pendlebury helping refugees at the border

Rabbi Yoshi and Stephen Wise Temple –how to help the Jews in the Ukraine

Hamantashen for HOPE and more ways to HELP the Ukraine

I am reminded of an interview I did with Gaby Natale last year when she said, “Starting small doesn’t mean thinking small.” She started her show in a carpet warehouse and now has 3 Emmys and 30,545,939 views on her YouTube channel. If we all do our best with our small steps, we can create big change.
