Celebrating the spirit of Volunteerism
Sunday, June 29, 2008
4:00 PM to 6:00 PM
Dedicated to Najma Ghouse
The world is a better place today because of the spirit of volunteerism in each one of us. Every one is endowed with the gift of helping others and a majority of us apply that gift and receive boundless joy that comes with serving others.
My father used to say “You did not walk out of your mother’s womb by yourselves, nor can you bury yourselves, from the first breath of life to the last one and every moment in between, you are dependent on others and others on you. Making that dependency easy, un-remunerative and comforting is the beautiful way to live”.
Picking things up for some one who cannot, listening to a grieving friend, taking time to help a stranger and simply doing good to others makes our heart smile, and we can do this every day. Every thing we are enjoying today is due to the spirit of volunteerism in others. When we receive a benefit, we have to give back as well to keep a balanced and a happier life. It is as simple as that.
Come and celebrate the spirit of volunteerism in you. We are pleased to dedicate this evening to one such person; Najma Ghouse.
