Give


Have you ever wondered what's our purpose in life? I think my purpose is to be a good mother and a decent human being to lead my daughters to do the right things when they face certain situations when they grow up.

I can admit, I'm not perfect nor an angel, but I think I stride every day to set a good example for my daughters. I see things differently now, all the things I didn't pay too much attention have more meaning to me than ever before: faith, kindness, respect, integrity, compassion... I've always believed in helping people in need, but I want to teach my chidren to understand why it's so important to open their arms, lend hands and just give.

It's been more than 10 days since the devastation of Haiti shocked the world. Outpouring support and help around the globe are still not enough to save every survivor.. But when horrible event like this happens, when I always feel the world comes crumbling down, I see goodness in people. People don't turn their head away - but they reach out, kids break their piggy bank and give their money to their mom to send in. And I know these are the things we can least offer to the world - GIVE...

If you have not donated to the vicitims of Haiti, visit :
*Shelter Box
*Help Haiti Now
*Unicef

It's great to see the outpour of support. I look at the little babies and it breaks my heart. Kudos for still keeping this out there.

It is devastating. I don't have much to give, but I give what I can and if we all do, it will add up.

Imperfect Stepford Wife: Yes, we need to keep talking about it, right?

Unknown Mami: Me too. I don't have much to give, but even just a little bit, still it's something and it will add up!!!
