Mostly, when we reach out to somebody we'd like to offer help or smething like that. What does reach out to something mean? Does it mean to go for/think of something for help? (Sort of the oppsite of reach out to somebody?)
Thanks a lot.
Thank you so much dear fivejedjon,
Here is the example from which I got the idea it'd mean to help:
She set up her charity to reach out to the thousands of homeless on the streets.
And this is the context in which reach out for something is given:
'Through the history of mankind, at certain times in life, we’ve had a human need to reach out to something greater than us, a need to put into words that which we cannot understand.'
Could you please tell me what the underlined section means?
You could reach out to a company in trouble, though that does involve sentient beings.
Hi everyone, I want to know "reach out to sth" in this sentence: "I research online and reach out to my personal network for recommendations on the best resources for improving that discipline or skill" is means???
I need it for my lesson.
Thanks so much if you can help me.
It does generally mean to offer aid, or to reach out for it yourself, as in that example. You can reach out to God, or to a spirit, or a friend, it means to seek something in very personal sense, - as well as the obvious 'reaching out to pick up a pencil.'
An alcoholic can reach out for help - it doesn't mean he holds out his hand for spare change, it means he is looking for assistance from anyone who will help.
