CALGARY (660 NEWS) — Tough times have hit nearly every corner of the world thanks to COVID-19.

But in times of trouble, you get to see how willing others are to help one another and pick each other up.

Unlike with past global epidemics, social media rules this age, and it’s become more and more evident with a recent #AlbertaCares movement.

Albertans are working to pick up each others spirits as many push through self-isolation or are just a little down on themselves in the tough time period.

But, it’s not just stemming out of nowhere. This is a direct order, or prescription for self-healing, from Alberta’s top doctor.

Some people showed off what simple things are helping shed a smile for them.

While others have gone well out of their way to make the sun shine a little brighter for others.

Alberta NDP Leader Rachel Notley joined others in donating to those who might not have the ability to go out and get food for themselves.

In the end, a little positivity can go a long way as the world works to fight together against COVID-19.
