I love being in a community which helps me live up to my values:
When I first came across Peter Singer, I just kind of assumed I wouldn’t end up donating much because it seemed like even though clearly we ought to, no-one else did. It makes it so much easier being suddenly in a group where donating 10% is just the accepted norm.
The community also seems great at sharing knowledge to make this easier, and supporting each other. An example I particularly loved was Rob Wiblin helping me ringing for the election: he wrote up and easy how to guide, and then for people who still found it aversive (which includes me because I hate making phone calls), he invited us over to all do it together and egg each other on, and so that he could help troubleshoot.
