Daily Coping 10 Dec 2020

I started to add a daily coping tip to the SQLServerCentral newsletter and to the Community Circle, which is helping me deal with the issues in the world. I’m adding my responses for each day here. All my coping tips are under this tag. 

Today’s tip is to support a charity, cause, or campaign you really care about.

I did this recently, when Jeff Atwood was raising money for the Georgia Senate races in the US. I donated, entered his contest, and won an iPad. I didn’t expect to win, and donated because I wanted to, but this was a bonus.


That inspired me to donate as well to Kiva. I’ve sent them money in the past, and did so again, giving them a little, and then lending out more to help others trying to grow their own businesses. I’ve had good luck with repayments, which let’s me lend again, but even when someone fails at their business, I’m glad I helped them make an attempt.
