Giving back sometimes sounds like such a useless word. There’s a saying going around: no matter how tough you think your life looks like, there is always someone who has to face challenges tougher than yours. This makes you realize how lucky you are to be in the situation that you are and to have the nice necessities (and even luxuries) that you have. But someone else’s challenges can take many different meanings. It might not only be the basic things like making money, having a place to call home or providing food for their family, but there is also the challenge of getter a proper education or taking part in some entrepreneurial projects.
These days, how can you imagine your life without electricity, without a computer or smart phone and not even to mention not having internet access?
WE MAKE A LIVING BY WHAT WE GET, BUT WE MAKE A LIFE BY WHAT WE GIVE – WINSTON CHURCHILL
Giving back is where you give without expecting something in return. This means no benefit for you, no recognition, but only the biggest reward of realization that you have made a significant or just a positive change in someone’s life.
We have been very fortunate these past couple of years here at Thuru Lodge and made some incredible friends and memories. This year, we would like to dedicate some of our time to help people in our local community. One of the ways we plan to do this is by having fund raisers here at the lodge and asking our loyal clients to help us make a difference in the lives of our community. We also want to supply some meat to the charities that help to provide food to the people in need.
There’s a saying: “Sometimes a small thing you do can mean everything in another person’s life.” This year, we here at Thuru Lodge would love to be able to do small things to make a change in the community of the place we call home.
