Good news for 2018 — #2

2. More good news:

The GOP may be 100% committed to the 1%, but the average citizen isn’t. Actually, it seems that most of us actually care about each other. In its recent year-end survey of consumer behaviors in 2017, Google reported a great deal of search volume for terms ending in “how can I help”?

This year had more than its fair share of disasters. But people were not content to simply follow the news coverage. They were itching to take action, turning to Google Search in the moment to quickly find ways to help.

In October, wildfires ravaged Northern California and a mass shooting in Las Vegas sent the country reeling. Plus, the 2017 hurricane season ranked as one of the most active and destructive on record, with 17 named storms.

In these moments, we saw people around the country eager for information about how they could make a difference for victims of disasters stretching from Puerto Rico to Napa Valley.

One way they might help:  Ditch the GOP in 2018. If, again, we actually have elections.
