Positive changes happen: together we have extended our hands to #refugees and families in need to help them have the same opportunities as us. And we have renewed our commitment to doing so by seeing not only how much our collaboration and closeness with each one of you, our Family of Compassionate Givers, has the power to transform and improve the futures of others, but also how it transforms the way we approach life.
By putting ourselves at the service of others we discover more about ourselves, we experience well-being and happiness that do not come from material things, but from the joy of knowing that even the smallest of our gestures can bring a positive change in someone else’s life. This is precisely the beauty of being of service without expecting anything in return: simply knowing that the other person is well.
“Large human movements spring from individual human initiatives. If you feel that you cannot have much of an effect, the next person may also become discouraged and a great opportunity will have been lost. On the other hand, each of us can inspire others simply by working to develop our own altruistic motivation.” – His Holiness the Dalai Lama
