The Shopping List

If you’re going to go shopping or buy your grocery don’t forget to include some food for the street children near your house. We’re lucky enough to have our weekly or monthly visit at the grocery store. We’re lucky enough to buy ourselves new clothing and pair of shoes from time to time. Share some of your blessings to the poor people within your reach, because that will make them less lonely. You might not be able to change their whole life, but you are helping in increasing their hope and perseverance to change their lives for the better. I believe a couple of canned goods and rice wouldn’t hurt your bill when you get to the counter right?

Sometimes people just need someone who will support them to be able to get back on their feet. They need a little push to believe that they can have a better life. Why not be the light that will give them a glimpse of hope? A little goes a long way, so don’t underestimate the little things that you are doing for other people. Think about this, if each and every one of us will help one poor person, it will make a whole lot difference to the world of poverty. We don’t need to wait for the government to act. We’ve been living in this earth seeing people begging and starving everyday outside and I believe its enough reason for us to take our own part in this crisis. We can’t change the whole world, but we can change one life.

The next time you go shopping, don’t forget to buy some food for the less fortunate people you always see roaming around near your house. Those people out there who can’t afford a living reminds us on how  blessed we are to be in the comfort of our home. I know many people don’t like giving money as a donation because they are uncertain on where the street children will use it. If you’re afraid that they might use the money in a dangerous way, give them healthy food instead. At least you’re sure that it will go straight to their tummies.
