It is the end of the year and we are all summing up all the good things we’ve done in the previous period. While revoking those memories, we reflect on some good things we could have done, but somehow decided against because we thought they required too much time and effort on our part.
However, the fact is that we don’t have to do TOO MUCH in order to do well for our society and ourselves. Small things are important too. Maybe even more important than the big ones. Imagine if everyone did one small deed a day/a month even, what a wonderful world we would be living in?
Since it is the time of Christmas and the time of giving and receiving, I would like to mention one story that has put a smile to my face and made me proud of being a citizen of Belgrade. Like the students you will see in these videos, I too believe that in each of us there is something good and humane. We all want to do a good deed and help those that need it the most. However, we often lack imagination, motivation or time to do so. These handful of students from Belgrade showed that giving does not need to be a weight upon your shoulders. It can also be a fun, creative activity that will draw people together because they have united to do greater good for those that need our help.
Watch videos below and let us know what you think. And if you have any videos or stories to share of others who help society, please send them all to firstname.lastname@example.org. Let’s start this year with sharing good and positive stories from our own neighborhoods; of humane and wonderful deeds that people around us have done. We will run the best story once a month, so that we all can get great ideas and be inspired to help people around us to lead a more fulfilling life.
Merry Christmas to everyone and a Happy New Year from all of us in the NDF Team.
