Teaching children about empathy and giving them the inspiration and know-how to support their peers is a life-skill lesson that plays an important part in the classroom. People should understand the power of collaboration and what it means to come together for a common mission. The umbrella of helping others can include working with a friend, making a difference in the world, and taking time to show people that you care.
A little bit of kindness can go a long way — even online. There are apps and web tools that aim to counter the incessant cyberbullying, harassment and other negative behavior that can make the Internet — and the real world — a rather uninviting place. That’s why one developer team, Landmark Applications, created an app that helps us do the exact opposite – to help other people and do acts of kindness. The app that we’re talking about is called Our Local Harvest, now available for both iPhone and iPad that support iOS 8.0 or later. It is beautifully designed, with friendly UI and helpful features. Let’s see what the app is all about.
Our Local Harvest is an iOS tool especially designed for people that have extra harvest. It allows you to share whatever you have left, whether it’s fruit or vegetables or anything you grow at home. For example, if you have a big fruit tree that produces way too much fruit and you don’t want to throw away the extra, this app can help you share it with your neighbors. Another good example is having a home garden that produces way too many tomatoes. You don’t have to toss away your excess, you can simply open this app, post what you have, where you have it, and at what time it will be available for someone to pick it up.
Start caring and sharing, download the Our Local Harvest app for free from the App Store and don’t forget to show it to your friends and family!
