Giving Back to Society

Myanmar Chin girlThis little cutie and her family are former refugees from Myanmar (Burma).

This year I signed up with Refugee Services as a volunteer worker, and was appointed to a newly arrived Myanmar Chin family.  It has been a very rewarding experience to help and support  them as they assimilate into a new culture.

I believe that when we’re successful in life we should give back to society and help others less fortunate. Bill Gates and Richard Branson (and many others), who have much more money than they could ever spend, are doing great things to help the world. They can afford to! But even if you’re not in their category you can still do something to help as I’m doing.

I love Napolean Hill’s quote: “If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way.”

May 2013 be a healthy, happy and successful year for you. Happy New Year!
