The annual Share-a-Gift project started in 1988 with a simple objective to teach the Boys how to care and share for the less fortunate in Singapore. Gifts like rice, Milo, oil, biscuits, canned food, instant noodles etc. are collected from the general public for distribution to the needy in Singapore. It is a high profile national community project, but one where I feel has more heart compared to those that put so much more emphasis on having grand TV shows and stunts to get the public to call and donate money. Too much fluff, I say.
Sometimes we wait for the perfect moment. The perfect moment where we have enough money to donate, enough time to give, enough power to change the world. But when do we know that it's enough to be perfect?
We teach our children that even though they are small, they are mighty, and yet we forget that of ourselves. Sometimes we need to remember that every amount adds up, no matter how small. I often tell hubby that a lot of $1 makes $1,000,000. And it's true. As long as we have enough to feed ourselves, clothe ourselves to keep warm, have a roof over our heads and make our families happy, it's enough.. no, more than enough to be able to donate, give and change the world one little step at a time.
You don't need to be a millionaire to be able to share a gift. Agree?
