Our blog is not about blindly sharing other sources. It's about what we create and put some thinking into things that got our attention. We are designers, so expect beauty and creativity. We also are a family so, once in a while, expect some domestic happenings. :)
Recently there was a viral case on the social media with a 34 y.o. romanian woman who has brain cancer. She needed 100.000€ for an operation in Canada. I empathised with her maybe because I am almost her age and I felt like I wants to help her, to support her in some way. So I verified the information and I donated 50€, because that was the least I could do to help her. That and a share of her case, plus changing my profile picture and cover from my Facebook account to let my friends know about her case.
I was very surprised to find out that in just 2 days, she managed to collect the whole amount, with the help of her friends, who helped her also with a lightning donation campaign. It worked, and that restored my faith in humanity and it led me to decide to help whenever I can any cause I believe in. I can’t just stand by and hope that something it will change, and that “some” people will help the others. The world needs more happy ending stories, and it’s time that we do something, not just hope and watch. And I found out another thing: that your happiness, when the person you helped succeeds becomes in a small part your own. And who doesn’t need to feel a little better about him or herself? Who doesn’t need to be a part of a big success?
