I refuse to believe that small acts of kindness cannot make a difference. I couldn’t sleep last night and was haunted by an image I saw of a starving child in Ethiopia. I felt frustrated by the fact that I can’t make any difference to that poor child’s absolute misery and hunger… but it got me thinking and I came up with a plan. We are surrounded by people that are also hungry, who find it hard to make it day to day, who earn minimal wages, so this is where I will start.
Like a small pebble in a pond, thrown the right way it can make extraordinary big ripples. My solution? I vow to make just one extra sandwich, and somewhere in my day I’ll give it to someone in need, and with some hope, at least 10 of my friends on Facebook, or 10 people reading this blog, will do the same…and if 10 friends of each of those 10 do it as well and so on and so on, just imagine how many people will get a sandwich that they could not afford.
You might think this stupid, but my challenge to you is this. Just in case people read this post late, I’ll do it on Friday the 13th. Very fitting as it will turn a superstitiously “bad-luck-day” into a good-luck one for someone. It will take you less than 5 min and 2 slices of bread with something in between. Please help me make a difference…
