Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Helping Equals Happiness!!


--by paolagast, posted Feb 24, 2016
I had my first volunteering day today at the recovery kitchen for people battling addiction.  Everyone was so nice and appreciative with me of being there. I donated an hour and a half of my time to help feed all these incredible people that have turned their lives around, and it felt incredible! I really enjoyed spending time with them and getting to know some of them. I can't wait to go back tomorrow and lend a hand again! There is no doubt that there is good in every person, and our bad choices don't define us.  It's our determination to turn negative events into positive moments and striving to be better every day that counts. I was reminded today to not judge a book by its cover because we all deserve a read.

Well done for realising the cover of a book doesn't always tell the whole story. x
