Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Birthday Donations

--by AndiCas, posted Dec 8, 2015
I messaged my Kenyan friend to wish him a 'Happy Birthday!'. He told me that instead of spending money on a party, he chose to visit a juvenile facility and spend the money on donations. He donated personal items like toilet tissue and soap which are not provided by the state.

What a tremendous way to spend a birthday!
