I’ve lived in London for over 10 years now. About 5 years ago I started to think who was my community? I had friends and work colleagues but didn’t really step outside of that. When I was 24 I was engaged, which quite a few people don’t know. I called it off and it was pretty tough. It’s partly why I became so interested in #socialgood and #community. I needed to ground myself and it helped me do that, practising random acts of kindness made me happier!
I started a social enterprise and social good group last year on Facebook and it’s been great to connect with new people, across the world. The power of ‘what if’. One member is Paa Kwesi Quainoo in Ghana who works for Clothe The Naked (CTN) Outreach a charitable organisation registered in Ghana and USA, providing support to poorer communities and orphaned children. I saw the below post in the group, so I’m crowdfunding £200 to get Greatlove a camera.
I remember when I was a child and the difference small things could make. So hopefully this will make a difference for Greatlove. I look forward to seeing the photos!
