Helping Angels Foster Green Humanity
In conjunction with 'Pay It Forward Day' today, Helping Angels, a network of volunteers committed to a movement of compassion based on random acts of kindness held a forum to propagate Green Humanity through corporate and personal leadership.
Unlike any other, today's forum is committed to inspire compassion, kindsness and empathy towards humanity and mother earth in the community through a group of inspiring individuals.
First speaker of the forum, Matthias Gelber aka The Green Man began by sharing with us about the weather in a small village where he grew up in Germany and how it would snow over a period of 3 months a year, while now his family would only see sporadic snow as a result of climate change. He goes on by sharing with us simple things we can all do to preserve Mother Earth. He is indeed right to say "every day is Earth Day".
The next speaker Poesy Liang who is a survivor of spinal tumours that left her battling paralysis twice talked about Helping Angels, how this online group challenge others to give help without using money, as Poesy's personal belief is that money alone cannot solve our troubles.
Jason Kelly, founder of the Socks for Japan campaign came to KL to speak about the campaign's initiative. A simple idea such as collecting clean socks for victims of the Tsunami in Japan had such a huge impact. The simple idea of creating a connection between a group of people wanting to offer their help and sympathy to those affected and the survivors of the tsunami and earthquake aftermath, basically connecting the dots.
Final speaker for the day, Priscilla Patrick, the voice we more commonly know as Traffic Woman on radio shared with us her near death experience surviving the Sri Lanka tsunami back in 2004. Wanting to remain somewhat anonymous, she presented her part audio style just like on the radio. We could hear her but we couldn't see her.
Limkokwing University collaborated with Helping Angels to record the entire forum which will be posted on youtube really soon. We'll definitely be sharing them on our website here so you'll be able to hear the speakers share their stories and experiences to show compassion, kindness and empathy to humanity and mother earth.
