Kindness

Kindness plays a very important role in our society nowadays. That's why in everything that I do I try to incorporate "kindness" in my life and I also try to infect other people.

We are inherently kind. But to practice kindness to people we meet everyday specially to ones we don't personally know is kind of rare nowadays.

Last October 13 was a special day for Ate Jireh. She decided to spend her birthday *actually her birthday was on Oct. 17* to kids at a "Drop-In Center" located in San Pedro Street, Davao City.

Knowing her plans, I decided to help out and she agreed. I talked to people in the office and they are thrilled & "inspired" by the idea, they in turn asked if they can also help out and join.

It was a fun day for everyone. We introduced each other and then played a few games. Ate Jireh, me, kids and company were all having fun. It was a bit awkward at the beginning but we got the hang of it in the end.



It's great to bring joy and show kindness to kids. Seeing them so happy and excited.




Thank you Ate Ji for inspiring us and for sharing the experience with us. :)


Have a great week!

No kind action ever stops with itself. One kind action leads to another. Good example is followed. A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees. The greatest work that kindness does to others is that it makes them kind themselves. -quoted by Amelia Earhart-

volunteering just makes you feel good, period. And its not even about making yourself feel good...but feeling good that you've made someone smile, in the end happy. I do it because seeing the less fortunate happy is good enough for me. Mababaw ako eh. :D

HI! I'M BACKK. haha. :D
