The final chapter of our Feed Your Mind Body & Soul social media campign went live this week. Throughout this campaign we have been exploring the importance of developing empathy. Empathy gives us insight into the lives of others and into humanity. We are all exercising empathy through our actions during the Covid-19 restrictions. We are taking action for the benefit of ourselves, we are learning how a daily act of solidarity and consideration for others can directly affect our national and global community.
