Life is about Making A Difference...

Let's not forget there are people who need our help

I consider myself a very fortunate person. Being born and bred in Singapore, I've had tertiary education which helps in finding an occupation which provides a decent, comfortable living.

We are very fortunate that we do not face the threat of natural disaster like flood, typhoon or earthquake in Singapore. However I often hear people complaining about their job, no interesting place to go on weekends, prices of public transport went up again etc.

Little did we still remember somewhere out there, there are people who do not have the basic necessity to survive and are dying of hunger, there are many children who are not fortunate to have education...

I've added a new element called "Let's Make A Difference" just above my latest post where clicking on it will bring you to
At this website, all you need to do is to "play" or rather it is a test on your vocabulary. Each correct answer you get, 20 grains of rice will be donated through the UN World Food Program to help end hunger.

There are also "tests" on Arts, Chemistry, Geography, Math subjects etc. The more you "play", the more right answers you will get, and the more rice will be donated to the needy.

Do visit the World Food Programme website to read more or make a donation to help fight hunger.

Don't forget... just as when we grumble about eating the same food all the time, someone on the other side of the world is dying without food...
