First of all – YAY my first day at McDonalds is this Thursday! It’s only a 45 minute orientation, but it’s something, hey. On that day they tell me when my training starts.
Secondly, notice the new header? Like it? I like it =]
So, the world was rocked by news a powerful earthquake had struck Haiti.
Tens of thousands were killed, with many more injured and left homeless.
This latests catastrophe in a string of recent disasters begs us to ask a very important question – how can we help?
It is in times of need and times of trouble that we realise just how powerful compassion is. Thousands upon thousands, millions upon millions giving selflessly not just their money but also food, clothing and their valuable time to help people in Haiti whom they never have even met.
People from every corner of the globe uniting hand in hand to assist these devastated victims.
These stories of compassion, of mateship, of love are inspiring and incredible. People with literally no money for themselves are compassionately giving up their money to send to the victims in Haiti.
Being compassionate means giving even if you have none in the hope of helping others. It is a truly remarkable feeling when you give a donation, even though the recipients of the donation wouldn’t know it was you. Even your $1 donation helps enormously.
So don’t be selfish.
Don’t be stingy.
Be compassionate and give with an open heart, and let your compassion not be restricted to only disasters like these but day-to-day situations.
