“Be the change you want to see in the world”
This is one of my favourite quotes by Gandhi and it’s these exact words that I had running through my mind as I packed a bag full of care packages, that I had created for the homeless. I spent my day distributing them throughout the city of London and the reactions I had just warmed my heart.
I’ll never forget the woman who started crying and repeating “thank you” over and over, as I left her with a bag full of water, snacks, toiletry products and more. Giving back is part of who I am. It always has been and always will be. Today is International Poverty Day and I wanted to share my experience with you, in hopes of raising awareness and inspiring others to undertake their own acts of kindness. You never know how a small gesture can change someone’s entire day.
I hope you enjoy this video.
