Donate by being of influence, creating awareness

Nivari Van der VoordeI agree. I am trying to pinpoint the thing that you donate by being influential. You spread news; you tell people what is really happening. So, there is definitely knowledge that you donate. Is there anything else?

Shubhankar Kulkarni I do not know if it is simply just knowledge. You can share on social media a political post that one has already seen before and does not include any new information. But by repeatingly seeing this message being spread again it can cause awareness.

I mean, did we not know (knowledge) that racism is not a good thing already?
But by multiple people sharing this message it becomes a more topical issue, creating awareness for the subject again.

I think that a lot of things that are protested for, are things we already know. It just goes to the back of our minds again as we are caught up in our own lives. So bringing it back to the front seems to me different the just sharing knowledge, what do you think?

Take the example of the parents of Madeleine McCann. At some point the whole world knew that this little girl was missing, but by keeping the subject alive in the press they gained a continuously awareness around this, that new updates on the case still appear 13 years later on the news.

It was not the parents just sharing their knowledge, it was their influential network that made the change. Almost a strategy I would say. I also use this on my social media, to create a synergy of more knowledge together. So yes knowledge, but with a strategy that creates a lot more awareness.

Great work Subash! Kudos to the three-membered team. I am trying to extract the things you donated from the volunteering work. "Time" is surely one of the things. The second is "expertise". You knew how to set up a lab, how to grow cultures, and how to identify E. coli. Here lies your expertise. Expertise is acquired by spending a lot of time, energy, and experience. Therefore, expertise does not linearly depend on time and can be mentioned as a separate thing that you donate. When there are fewer people who can do the same job as you, your work does not linearly depend on time. The third is, as Darko suggested in one of the earlier suggestions, "brainpower". You understood that the damaged drainage system and unavailability of latrines contributed to the problem. You also thought of what could be done and suggested to the officials to distribute water-purifying tablets. All of this falls under donating "brainpower".

I was about to write that time is the most expensive donation an individual can make until I saw your 3rd point - organs. Hopefully, our technologies would soon catch up and make organ donations a thing of the past.
