Not everyone will resonate with this post, and that's okay, but For Those whom it does: act as you will.

Most people around us are so wrapped up in their Virtual Identities that they haven't stopped to smell the fire - I may not have much... but I have foreknowledge. THAT puts me in a unique position to assist some people where I think it might help best - and so at around 2 or 3 AM this morning I distributed a few small preparedness bags of masks and gloves, along with some bags of dog food to at risk individuals in my community of whom I am aware. I can't help everyone. But if there's a 50% chance our money is going to be useless depending on the wind - it may as well go towards saving some lives - even if they didn't listen while we were yelling and screaming, waving our arms in the air. What we do for others....we to do ourselves. I made a point to deliver boxes of N95's which I was lucky enough to score to several nurses I know, with the note "Please keep. Just in Case" on them. They may not realize it yet, but they may run out at work. I hope to set an example. These are just some of my ideas. If in a position to do so - It could make an actual difference. God Speed.

May want to rethink that 2-3 am delivery time. Seems that could lead to some unintended consequences as I'd not take to kindly to someone in my yard at that hour.

As said here before. " They will depend on you later".

Yes... I will not be a "Provider when you could have provided for your family and yourself". Best to all.... BASS


I do not believe this will occur.

But I've spent ~$1k on things to give away.
Wipes, masks, and food.

But the vast majority are prepositioned, not given.

I believe if you give it away now they will be LESS likely to prepare themselves.

I have a supply of food for my non prepping family plus my house is bug in central. I will help my one neighbour up to a point. They are both quite old though so that could be their undoing . She has to go for cancer treatments.

You are doing right. You may have just changed a trajectory somewhere that will make a difference.

I've preached preparedness for years to mixed reception. So I started giving "prep starter kits" to those I care about, even the naysayers. A 5 gallon bucket with the basics. Left a note in the bottom that said, "I told you so."
