Let's make it every day
While such acts of kindness are good, it is necessary to know that showing care to those who need it around us should not be limited to the festive season.
We could cultivate the habit of lending a helping hand. For instance, free lunch to a random homeless person would go a long way.
Man gives out food and money
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a young man, Roland Ochard, showed that humanity is all about giving oneself to make our society better.
In a post that went viral, the young Nigerian was pictured preparing the food he planned to give out to people who lack it.
What got people's attention more was not just the food but that the giver placed the sum of N200 note on each plate of meal to show that he does not only want to feed them but is also interested in enriching their pockets.
