I remember my childhood when we hardly had any toys, it was either dolls or playing outside.But today in the market, the variety of toys, games and everything is so vast and amazing that its difficult to decide what to buy. and when you check the rates, your eyes pop:).Whenever I go out and buy balloons or something like that for my children and then see that the sellers are also children, my heart goes out to them.Here are our children who are never satisfied with their toys and games and enjoyment and are always demanding something new and better and there are these children who are neither getting the pampering, nor toys, instead working hard to get even food, whereas our children throw so many tantrums for eating even..
I always think what can we do..I know that I am not a big person to do something big, but this time when i came from my son's place I brought back a few of my grand child's toys which were as good as new and gave them to the children in Nethaji Mercy Home.When my child demanded a air filled penguin, i got it for him, but when I saw that his mother didnt like it much, I didnt hesitate a second in giving that to the above orphanage and believe me, it gave me the same or even more happiness than if my child had played with it.
So when i came across an initiative by Johnson's Baby about sharing your children;s things with unprivileged children, I was so happy...We cant do much, but this is the least every mother can do..sharing you child's used toys,books and clothes.It gives a lot of happiness to the giver and brings some sunshine into other's life too...and children too learn something good. When from their childhood they see the sharing, it becomes for them the way of life..
These people have partnered with GOONJ..one NGO I have always admired and sometimes contributed too to their collection campaign. Life is nothing if its not about sharing..sharing with your loved one brings you momentary pleasure, but sharing to these unfortunate kids gives you so much satisfaction and long term happy state of mind.
