The Australian Nerdfighters are running a project to create and hand out care packages to the homeless in some of Australia’s major cities.On any given night one in 200 Australians will experience homelessness. We aim to hand out 300 care packs which will include essential hygiene items, water, snacks, socks and scarves, and an info sheet detailing local support services.
There are a number of ways to help our team of dedicated Nerdfighters reach our goal: you can knit scarves (http://dft.ba/-knitting), make a cash donation (https://www.mycause.com.au/page/67002), or volunteer (http://dft.ba/-packs4homeless)Like our Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/packs4homeless) and follow us on Twitter for up to date information on the exciting happenings with the Project, and to help show your support!
Sternberg’s Love Theory
The triangular theory of love is a theory of love developed by psychologist Robert Sternberg. In the context of interpersonal relationships, ‘the three components of love, according to the triangular theory, are an intimacy component, a passion component, and a decision/commitment component’.
Intimacy – Which encompasses feelings of attachment, closeness, connectedness, and bondedness.
Passion – Which encompasses drives connected to both limerence and sexual attraction.
Commitment – Which encompasses, in the short term, the decision to remain with another, and in the long term, the shared achievements and plans made with that other.
And if you buy them all, you get $8 off in the checkout :)
