BRING A SMILE TO OTHERS

Was packing my room and realized that I had clothes that I no longer wear. I usually give them out to my little cousins/nieces. But this time I decided to do it differently. So came up with the idea of giving it to the old folks on the streets of Singapore. I just felt they would be happy to have someone caring for them . There were folks in their 70s struggling with survivor everyday and yet still so humble when receiving my little kindness. This is something we need to learn from them.

I remembered one of them said to me in her words "I have illness so don't come so close to me. You should keep the jacket and food for yourself.." But I insisted she take it. Eventually, she thanked me profusely saying "God will bless you mightily." She added "I usually pick food from the trash after lunch hours." My heart cringed.

"Its not how much you give but how much love you put into giving.." - Mother Teresa
Hope you be blessed by this video and maybe try it yourself!
Its also my first time doing a video so bear with the quality.

excellent idea...some time ago I organized one charity event with my friend, we gathered a ton of clothes for those in need.

Kudos for doing this. Great video as well!

Wow this is so touching and inspiring! You're such a beautiful person, inside and out!

Maiken said...

what an incredibly sweet thing to do, Issa. I'm really glad you did something like that and gave some much needed joy to those people.
I gave my clothes and other stuff like that to a single mother whose little daughter was very happy. before that I gave clothes and stuff to our local social department. it's good to do something good :)

Hello my old star blogger friend!
Remember me, Anika?

I was in kind of solitude for last couple of months - I put the blog on private, changed it's name (again), was very busy at college,... but always had time to sneak peak @ your blog. Now I have more free time so I'll be available more frequently.

Congrats for many things, especially facehunter!

This post is so touching! Not just that I heard your voice but I saw you in such a great action.
Oh, Issa, if there will be more Issas on the world, it will be much prettier place to live in.

Wink ;), kiss, and lots of fun and success.

Sincerely yours
Anika

moiminnie said...

Already seen this one on Facebook and you are a definition of a kind soul and an inspiration to many, I believe. Helping out the less fortunate, even if you don't have much to begin with, always brings peace and happiness. I like to donate my clothes to shelters for kids and help out financially whenever I can. Giving back is what it's all about. Keep it up Issa <3

It is sad to think how a culture of caring for their elderly has allowed this to happen....the elderly homeless and hungry on the streets...it really is a painful sight. It was lovely what you did for them my dear. Have a fabulous weekend!
