How about it? A very unscientific survey about traditions of caring for friends and neighbors in times of need.
What did you do when your neighbor's mother died?
What did your friends do when you had your first child?
If you were sick for a week, what would be the most helpful thing a friend or neighbor could offer to do?
We all have stories to tell around these questions; the great surprises, the disappointments, the things people do we wish they'd stop doing. We come from different backgrounds, belong to different generations, have different expectations, different needs. So, how about a very unscientific survey? It's anonymous and it's not nearly as long as it looks.
