Picture this. You have your day to day responsibilities taken care of. You have all the time in the world. You have all the money in the world. If I were to ask you about that one cause you could throw yourself completely behind. What would that cause be?
If I had it all, the cause for me would be ‘Feeding the Hungry’.
A human being can survive with say a set of clothes & no shelter at least for a while. But if a person is not fed for more than a day or two, his very survival is at stake.
But when I think of it, do we need to have all our worries taken away & have all the money in the world to throw ourselves behind a cause we care for? Can’t we just start where we are. I found this Quote that came from Mother Teresa.
We don’t always have to do things on a grand scale. There are so many ways we can still throw ourselves behind a cause with whatever little that we have.
Now, lets take the example of the cause ‘Feeding the Hungry’. How can you help with that?
These days there are so many charities & organizations that do such amazing work of providing nourishing meals to the poor. Why not volunteer with them. If you can pay for a meal, by all means help out that way by donating money. Or it can be as simple as handing out a homemade food packet to that poor homeless man across the street. Go do that! Just start where you are.
It might not be much for you, but to a hungry person, it is means much more.
feeding the Hungry can also be the Animals & Birds. Feed them too. It takes very little. Like Human Beings, hunger affects them too. Leave a bowl of water & some food for them on the deck or terrace as well. Every life is equally important in the eyes of our maker.
So, the way I interpret throwing yourself behind a cause does not translate to Throwing yourself behind a Cause when you have it all. It means this.
So this year, I welcome all my Bloggers friends to embrace the Blogger with a cause Tag. Select a cause you are passionate about & make a commitment to it this entire year. It can be Feeding the Hungry, Helping the Homeless, Giving away clothes to Charity, Educating a Child or the one that speaks to you.
Let us make 2016 a year, when we make a difference in our own little way. Blogging is a platform that takes your thoughts & initiatives across the boundaries. Use it!
