#Payitforward with #ActsofKindness and see the impact it has on people. #Inspire & #Engage the younger generations to care about #socialimpact.
My lovely ex-colleagues Pericles Pericleous, Luisa Petruccio & Yasmin Muhiuddin took it upon themselves to continue the #KindnessKitAppeal I started at Pearson last Xmas. It warmed my heart to see the tradition being continued. All gift boxes included essentials donated by the generous staff at Pearson.
Emdad Rahman & Pericles coordinated the collection and distribution of the gifts to Whitechapel mission and homeless folks in Stratford.
#OneThirdSoupKitchen volunteers serve food every Saturday in Stratford & Whitechapel.
Last Saturday was my turn, I prepared chicken stew served with rolls and yummy cakes by Gosia Mugambwa.
An army of happy young volunteers served the food and gave out gifts to the homeless. It was lovely to see them so engaged, not one of them let the cold evening stop them from giving out warm smiles.
We distributed the Pearson #KindnessKits, gloves, hats, scarves (donated by St. Luke’s Primary local school organised by Rubi Das) and warm winter coats donated Jusna.
That’s how we spent our festive holidays. How about you?
