Hey Isaac Jumba, I am trying to share messages like this in a newsletter. It's just one way to do so. With that newsletter, I hope to inspire people to be kind, help others, but also for small entrepreneurs to find ways of getting through these times. You can find the latest issue here: Maybe you can share it in your network, or start something similar? Your feedback would be welcome!
