I grew up with a father who was one of those secular believers of doing good simply because it was, well, good. That’s all. There were no religious brownie points. There was no reward in the afterlife or, in fact, in this life either. As far as my father was concerned, the best kind of doing good was the kind where you did not make a fuss and draw attention to yourself. Rather, you quietly did what you could to help and were thankful to do so.
My Dad's a tough act to follow but he's a big part of why I rarely talk about my 20+ year job in humanitarian aid on this blog.
Nonetheless, in the spirt of my last blog post, I did want to share with you something I have been working on with a group of others for the last 18 months. It's called Project SOAR. And it's a social experiment and an affair of the heart.
I could tell you but it's so much easier to show you.
In this busy world of ours, it's hard to find good ways to help others -- ways that are constructive and worth our time. I truly believe Project Soar is one of those ways.
