What it takes to make someone smile
With a mission of making a difference, Gozoopers take turns every month to do something good for society. While one team organizes it, the others join in. This month the Development team took us to meet the boys residing at the Family Home Guild of Service. The caretaker Swati ma’am welcomed us with the boys. The trustees, Supriya Naik and Dhananjay Mehta, joined us soon after.
The immensely positive bunch of boys surprised us with their moves, their talks and their contentment with life. They were surprised too, especially when they received the attention of a big group of Gozoopers, who not only took out time to make them smile, but also provided them with uniforms for the next school year.
Making someone smile is as easy as it sounds. And as rewarding as any other act of kindness can be. Here’s what you can do the next time you want to make someone smile.
Take initiative and involve people.
Let them spread smiles, too!
Give them quality time.
And moments to cherish in that time.
Match up to their enthusiasm and energy levels.
Even if it involves racing and playing cricket without a bat.
Fill their lives with colors of your own.
Yes, painting a wall or two, helps too!
Do something for them which only you can do.
Like a digital presence to help them get noticed.
Last but not the least, give them chocolates.
Chocolates can create the curve that can set everything straight!
All we wanted is to make them smile. And that, we surely did!
