Even when you have almost nothing, there is still something you can share. This is the true joy of giving. This is what a true sacrifice is, to do whatever you can despite your circumstances.
In India as well as in other countries across the world Covid-19 is spreading like wildfire. Even the richest of the countries in the world are finding it tough to put in place the infrastructure that is required to contain the impact of this crisis.
Don't you think we can collectively do something to make a difference in these difficult times?
We as students do not earn money, however we do spend quite a lot on ourselves, be it on our birthdays, or going out with friends. Some of us even get pocket money or money from our relatives on different occasions
Are we prepared to SACRIFICE some of these small things to contribute to something much BIGGER than ourselves?
It doesn’t matter how much you can give. It is the act of giving whatever you can that carries value.
Don’t ask your parents for contributing funds without telling them and PLEDGING what you will be SACRIFICING for it. Now what can you pledge? You may pledge:
- your birthday celebration
- 1 month's pocket money
- A new video game that you wanted
- Any small thing!
