On 27th September 2020, I spent the sunday evening giving out the little I could in form of posho, sugar, soap, milk, salt and rice to the vulnerable people in the neighborhood of Banda Kasenyi (before the Kireka trading center), in so doing playing my part in making the world #ABetterPlace
One of the ladies I met had a very heartbreaking story she shared with me that left me wanting to help her and her extended family of over 7 people she lives with in a small ghetto house, I vowed to work even harder to get be able to even help her more.
Giving to the causes you care about not only benefits the benefactors
themselves, it can be deeply rewarding for you too. Millions of people
give to charity on a regular basis to support causes they believe in, as
well as for the positive effect it has on their own lives.
Giving to society or charity is a major mood-booster.
The knowledge that you’re helping others is hugely empowering and, in
turn, can make you feel happier and more fulfilled. Research has
identified a link between making a donation to charity and increased
activity in the area of the brain that registers pleasure - proving that
as the old adage goes, it really is far better to give than to receive.
So as I play my part through @BetterWorldTL
, I encourage you too to wake up, look for those in need in your community and help them out with any donation you have, even what you consider little might be the change maker in someone's life.
