A better is a unique, entertaining and engaging act that benefits someone that you’re close to - a friend, a family member or a community. It should never be selfish, but it will always be creative and inspiring. It can be something that’s just fun. For the sake of fun. It can be for art, for a passion project, for education, gifting - anything that will make a person’s or communities’ day that little bit better. It will be something that leaves a lasting impression and makes a real difference. It can be something really simple because sometimes, the simplest ideas have the biggest impact.
