Like many I joined my local Vinnies conference for one reason – to help, to do charity – but found much more. I found that each relationship in service led to justice – a hand up for those we were assisting. Alone we can do a little, but together we can speak up, and give those that most need it a hand-up so they don’t need yet another hand out.
The gap between the rich and poor continues to widen and I see first-hand how this impacts the most vulnerable in our society. We are seeing a dramatic increase in homelessness and people struggling to make ends meet. We are also seeing more people with depression and anxiety and I am passionate about turning this around.
Be the change you want to see. Make the emotional connections with people isolated by poverty, hold their hands through the tough times and be the shoulder they can lean on. Don’t just talk about your compassion, act on your compassion to change lives. Be the light in someone’s darkness.
