Seasonal Days of Action!

Seasonal Days of Action!

Whether you're celebrating the eight days of Hanukkah, the twelve days of Christmas, the week you get off of work before 2018, or just making some new year's resolutions, Civic Syrup has you covered. Play the Seasonal Days of Action game! Match an action from the left with any issue on the right and take action each day for as many or as few days as you like. 365 seems excessive so let's just get the ball rolling with ten:

  1. Read an article
  2. Write a letter to a newspaper editor
  3. Contribute to an individual's political campaign
  4. Contribute to a charity
  5. Talk to a friend you think you agree with
  6. Talk to a friend you think you disagree with
  7. Volunteer
  8. Shop a company with a cause
  9. Contribute to an advocacy group
  10. Call a representative
  • Voting Rights & Democracy
  • Education
  • Mental Health
  • Public Safety/Justice Reform
  • Public Service
  • Safety/Violence
  • Labor Rights/Economy/Jobs
  • Civil Rights
  • Health Care
  • Environment/Energy

See if you can take a different action for each cause (and add in your own causes like immigration, refugees, housing, transportation, etc.) or cycle through all the actions for one cause you really care about! Most importantly, treat yourself to some cozy socks, a cup of hot cocoa, or a walk in the snow each time you complete an action. Happy holidays and all the best in 2018!
