Passionate About Giving

20 November 2011

I feel so glad and fortunate that I can be a part of a company that not only provides good service to their clients but who also supports their staff to contribute back to the society as well.  I also believe the same thing about giving back to society that all of us have a responsibility for taking good care of the place we live in.   So I try to find time for volunteering as much as possible.

I just came back from our Corporate Social Responsibility trip two days ago and today I spent the last day of the weekend on flood relief.  I went to Wat Duang Kae temple for preparing, cooking and packing food, which will be distributed to the flood victims in many areas inside Bangkok.

I arrived at the temple at 13.00 and immediately went to pack rice and fried chicken, which was really hot.  I moved to pack salted eggs with spicy paste but there was a problem that the paste wasn’t tasty enough and needed more lime juice added.

After that I moved to pack rice with omelet and the smell was so good that it made me feel hungry.

A few more tasks I did before going home were cutting and squeezing lime juice in another round and peeling boiled eggs.

I decided to leave at 5pm when I felt exhausted and ready to go back home for dinner.  I smelt of chicken blood, oil and lime juice but most of all I felt so happy that I can provide help for the people in trouble.  I find doing good things is not hard at all, it just requires a very simple thing; making an effort with passion to give happiness to others.

“Life is a gift, and it offers us the privilege, opportunity and responsibility to give something back by becoming more”.  Anthony Robbins.
