Bringing out the Goodness in you!

  • Mood:
We are all born with goodness within us. That is why children are pure, innocent, honest and straight up front. Their innocence is their essence, their goodness! As they grow older, life, surroundings and experiences teach them how to manipulate, to defend themselves and to do things that may not always be right, but they do it anyways. 
 We are all born different. None of us chose to be born in a certain house, on a certain continent and yet we see so many injustices happening in the world around us. We see lack of tolerance and empathy. People giving more importance to their own 'self' than others, trying to enforce their own opinions and forgetting others have equal rights on this planet as they do.
 Kiwanis is a platform that tries to bring the goodness out in people. Do good and feel good. Kiwanis' clubs all around the globe have been bringing people together to work towards creating a positive world, spreading tolerance and empathy for others, teaching us to think beyond our own selves and fostering a loving, caring and productive environment for everyone. It all starts one person at a time, starting from our own self, then the people around us and then the people beyond. We cannot change the world without changing ourselves. We cannot create tolerance without acceptance, without getting into the shoes of others.
 Kiwanis' clubs are found in U.S.A, Canada, Europe, Asia-Pacific (ASPAC) region which consists of Australia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippine Luzon, Philippine South, Taiwan and non-districted Kiwanis nations like Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Nepal, Pakistan, Singapore and Sri Lanka. 
 Kiwanis Family involves and engages elementary school kids, middle and high school, college and university students and adults with disabilities alike, with the vision that we are all capable of doing good and achieving the highest level of tolerance and acceptance towards each other. Be it the other gender, another race, different culture or another faith.
 We speak the same language, of love and peace and of prosperity of human kind. In today's world where people don't take a minute to blame others, Kiwanis is where we see the misery of others and lend out a hand to help. 
 We need more helping hands, to reach out and support the people in need. Only we can change the misfortunes into fortunes, all we need is a good heart and a generous hand. Find out how to become a Kiwanian today!
