Lets Do It: the Community way
Ever thought how you can give a helping hand to the community? I bet that many of us do that and we find it hard at times to know where or how to start .. Most of us end up giving a financial contribution to some charity groups and organizations (please check how legitimate it is before you make your contribution) which is very well needed but we are often left on the blind side of knowing how the money was really used..
Well there are many ways to help out in our community … from a simple attitude adjustment to joining the many charity organizations … but what I want to talk about here is the “physical” contribution we can make ..
Lets Gather a group of friends or family and decide on a project : distributing food, fixing a home, taking unfortunate kids to field trips … we can be creative and generous in our ways
Lets Define the cause : who, where, and how can we reach them … there are so many people in here that is in need of a helping hand and sometimes it’s not just about the money
When we put out will and thoughts together all we really need is to just Do it!
Here are some photos of the work of young Kuwaitis who gave a helping hand “literally” by transforming an old office room into a community room for the “girls” orphanage … although it was very simple … it meant a lot for both (this was done few years back)
So let’s get to know our community by lending a helping hand… and as the song says (sorry but I don’t know the name of the singer) ” it won’t be long when I need a friend to lean on” … we might need a helping hand one day!
