"Lets us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to do the humble work."
Doing charity is something that we can do in our daily life! For instance, you can join Tsu Chi recycling projects, visit old folks home without the purpose of doing your moral assignment, helping your friends in academic, Soka Gakkai free education programme, giving some food to the guards in hostel and make some donations instead of shopping(buying unnecessary stuff zzz)! Charity need not to be in monetary basis, a daily prayer for the happiness of the humanity is also making a good deed!
I looked weird with braces -.-
The old folks are very happy when we go to visit them every month
Also, I realized that most of the volunteers in Handicamp are came from the family members of the participants. I hope more people will join the meaningful activities that will bring your enlightenment! I felt thankful and gratitude without complaining much after joining these meaningful activities!
How I wish we have longer holidays in our semester break!
I hope we can have two months holidays instead of two weeks!
Then I can participate in more Volunteering Programs!
I hope to go Africa/China for the volunteering programs after I graduate!
Cause' when you smile, the whole world stops and stares for awhile
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has two principal areas of work in pursuing its commitment in its mission statement to "innovation in health and learning to the global community". There is its largely US-based public education work – investing heavily in the state school network and bringing new technology to out-of-date libraries. And then there is its international programme to combat disease and poverty in the developing world. The latter makes up 60 per cent of the total, tackling both the causes and the consequences of malaria, TB and Aids, among others, around the world. [from Independent UK]
Some philanthropists prefer to give anonymously. The late David Astor spent his life giving away his inherited millions, insisting only that his donations should not be acknowledged publicly. That, you may argue, is the true meaning of charity, but it is rarely heard of.
I will never forget my ultimate goal in life to do philanthropy!
