How to give back – A simple Initiative

I saw this interesting video on the weekend past and I just could not get it out of my head. Have you ever just had this burning sensation in your heart that you knew that you were called to help others?

But how would you help others, you have little money, you have barely enough food to just get by and you say to yourself I am just down right poor. The world feeds off money but some of us we make enough to give to others but we refuse to give to the people who knock on our doors at night because we afraid that they will use the money we give them to buy alcohol. I believe that we are called to give what we can and when we can and sometimes to give even when it hurts. Even Levi agrees that giving back is a way of life:

Back to the video, it’s called the @TheStreetStore founded in January 2014; The Street Store was created by Max Pazak & Kayli Levitan with the support of M&C Saatchi Abel @CapeTown. As homelessness isn’t a South African problem, they made it open-source.

“We wanted to bridge the gap between the haves and the have-nots – so we’re taking to the street. The world’s first “pop-up store” for the poor. Hang up donated clothes, drop shoes in boxes. Then the homeless can help themselves. All donations made to The Street Store are free for the homeless to browse through and keep.
