I haven’t written a letter in like years and it feels good to be here today to express my gratitude and friendship to steemit.
To the most wonderful blog chain steemit,
It still feels like yesterday since when I joined Steemit , I had heard of steemit for a while but I had a little knowledge about it until I seeker from @farhmade and @njaywan and thanks to them I learned a lot and I’ve been learning more since I joined. I still remember my first post as a newcomer in the Achievement1 task in the @newcomerscommunity with some small guidance I was able to complete my achievement1 task and it was verified. I joined a lot of communities ; @worldoffootball, @steemghana,@Zerotoinfinity,@steemschools, @Steemsports and many more I can’t mention all, I subsequently then did my achievement2 and achievement3 task by myself, I had posted a lot of dairy games by then sharing my daily activities to steemit I participated in a few contests and I got rewards.Steem has done a lot for me in these past weeks since I joined and I’ve learned a lot, so I always try to share everything I do with Steem, my daily activities, charity ,vacation, hobbies , happiness and also troubles, today I want to share with you some charity I did along with my friends who happen to be members of Steem and @Steemghana.
Steemit has done a very good job in lifting me up and changing my life so with the little I get from steemit ,I have to help lift the less privileged as the saying
”you rise by lifting others”
I’ve always had a dream of making a difference wherever I find myself and for the first time in my life I felt like I’m a step towards that dream.
On the 12th of May this year, we the members of steem ghana based in Tamale decided make a little donation to the Orphanage here at Nyhohini, Tamale in the northern region of Ghana which was motivated by the eid-ul fitr celebrations of Muslims around the world , our aims was to put a smile on their faces as they celebrate the eid.
being an orphan is very tragic and sorrowful , I losty father less than 2 months ago , but I’m thankful to Allah because I’m grownup and I had the chance to meet my parents, those kids at the orphanage didn’t have the chance I had , most of them didn’t know who their parents were, some were dumped on the streets , some were victims of child abuse,criminal custody and war fronts.
As John Bunyan said-:
“You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.”
Here are the items that were purchased for the donation
I must commend the efforts and hardwork of @farhmade who is based in Tamale and made sure everything was in order including the collection of the various contributions from members.
The various items were bought beforehand so as we wouldn’t miss out anything when it was time for the donation.
Buying of items
We had already decided on when to go for the donation so when it was time we all decided to meet at the children’s home/ orphanage.
Arrival at the children’s home
We met with the caretaker /manager of the orphanage and made our donation and she showed so much appreciation.
Afterwards we were taken round the orphanage.
After this successful event, everyone then departed to the various households very excited about the good work done And we look forward to carrying out a similar exercise.
Thank you all for reading
