Hear to help

This community project, is based on the simple principle, that in every moment, there is the opportunity for it to be a wonderful one. What do we mean by that?

It says, that by taking the time to connect, engage and hear what is happening with others (and the environment around you) you are more able to respond with something real and relevant to help others (the environment) in that moment and possibly beyond.

How to ‘hear to help’

By conscious choice to bring this into ‘way of life’.

To hear, means to truly be in the space of others and your environment, to notice, listen, feel and sense what is happening.

Where you are not distracted, rather present and open to bring your whole self to the moment, in the exchange, to feel a true match between what is needed and what is possible.

By sharing incidental ways this happens, we are building a heart-based community, who chooses to care for themselves (heart, mind, body, spirit), others (that may include family, people known and unknown to you) and the environment (both the natural, virtual, and artificial).

Let’s hear about the way you give to this ‘hear to help’ community approach.


Hear to help… at home, work, outdoors… in moments, situations, life 

  • sharing your technology knowledge
  • sharing your honest expression of feelings
  • sharing items you no longer need
  • sharing your time with others
  • nurturing natures needs

Hear to help, could be an incidental moment,


as part of an approach / event that brings listening, expression and caring to others.

What we know

We know that people WANT to HELP and be involved in purposeful, rewarding and fulfilling projects and that’s what Hear to help brings.

We know the physical and mental benefits with moving more, and this approach promotes both.

It is an energy exchange with great value.

It has an intergenerational focus that brings the opportunity for involvement from  all of the community.

Hear to help supports what’s at the heart of our community helping philosophy.

The ‘ripple’ is bringing another opportunity for people of the community to get involved in something small, simple, achievable, fulfilling and helpful and with incidental benefits beyond what can be seen.
