#WATWB

It’s the last Friday of the month and the day on which bloggers around the world put up good news stories as a way of mitigating the bad news that floods our TV, newspapers, social media and so on. This is the 20th month so far!

We invite you to share a story that uplifts and inspires you and to tell us why it does.
Any story that shows humanity in action towards another person or group, or towards the planet, gets my heart singing. I’ve chosen this particular one among many to show that people do care and take steps to clean up, knowing the consequences of no action.

Ignore, deplore, accuse, tackle. Those are four of the responses of the general public when confronted by the multiple problems of our country.

I know that the community is working today at cleaning up the Hennops river which is about 40 mins away from me. If I could be there I would.

Thanks to our co-hosts this month. Please visit them, their stories are sure to be inspiring!

WATWB – Kindness

Sing up for We Are The World Blogfest!
We Are The World Blogfest

It’s that time again, the last Friday of every month when bloggers around the world post a blog and spread some sunshine among the darkness that threatens to envelop our beautiful world. It’s the 18th in this series!

I nicked the below off a FB post – 

I liked this link from sagodnews.co.za. Seeing lovely photographs of humanity in action, or those of nature always bring a smile to my face. It’s good to picture a better world. You’re invited to #PictureABetterWorld – “Did you know there is a direct translation between seeing images of kindness and compassion and inducing joy, optimism and gratitude? Your photography can create change”.

“We see kindness in people every day. In people we know and those we haven’t met yet. People lending a hand, helping others, sharing a meal, a smile, or paying it forward. And self-kindness”.

Kindness – can you enter a kindness competition?

#WATWB
Bloggers from around the world post a good news story on the last Friday of each month. Today is the 17th month of “We are the World Blogfest” #WATWB. The intention is to spread a little light and joy on a world that too often appears to be lacking in this resource.
We’ve been down at the coast for the last several days. It’s been wonderful, whales in the bay, crisp clear sea air. What’s also been wonderful to witness is the love people have for their animals, walking them on the beach, talking to them, seeing their tails wagging, seeing them jump in the sea with such exuberance.
The link I’ve provided is a sweet story of a man’s love, thoughtfulness and responsibility towards his two dogs. Too often are pets are not given the love that is needed. Can the measure of a person be taken by the way s/he treats animals? I think so … this is the link: https://www.goodthingsguy.com/people/spca-praise-family/

 

If you’d like to take part in this monthly blog fest of spreading a story of humanity in action, please add your name to the linky list. Click HERE to be part of the Light.  And put up a ‘feel-good’ post on the last Friday of the month. Your story to be below 500 words, non-political, non-religious. Provide the link to the story and tell us why in particular it touched you. And share it on social media.

#WATWB Feed those in need

#WATWB

It’s the last Friday of the month. #WATWB We are the World Blogfest puts up a post on this day every month to spread goodwill and to show that amongst the doom and gloom, much good is happening. I must say that for me I wondered where to find some good news; all seemed so dark and oppressive, not just here in South Africa but world wide as well.

The idea is to make a link to a good news story, and say briefly why this of particular interest to you. This one is especially interesting. It highlights how we live (in the western world at least) in excess and how much food is wasted. And what steps can be taken using technology to distribute food to those in need.

Our thanks to our hosts this month; their posts are below. Do pop by and say hello.

New tech for feeding the needy launched in SA

Thank you – I hope this finds you all well. I’ve been very slack in blogging lately. I hope to get back to it pretty soon. On a personal front, my son and daughter-in-law have been and are still travelling through Europe. A while back I got a message from Jüte that she’d mislaid her wallet in Germany, I think. I got a message yesterday from her that it’s been found and she now has it! Another bit of good news is that a bill I was ‘dealing’ with, finally got sorted yesterday and I was refunded the money owing! So, yesterday was a good day. Spring is in the air. The photo below is of my orchids, dying down but still a thing of beauty.

We Are The World Blogfest

 A group of bloggers from around the world participate in We are the World Blogfest, (#WATWB) and post once a month on the last Friday of the month. It is our attempt to bring and promote good news: a story of a person, or group, or organisation that is seen to be making the world a better place, in so many ways. The blogging also serves to shine a little light on the dark that pervades our planet, and to show that there is much good in the world whether small acts of kindness or on a larger scale …

I love this story that shows business and community in action, caring for our beautiful planet. We’re all aware of plastic, oil spills and trash that lands up in the oceans and threaten coral and sea life. The birds who use the seas and land for food and breeding also get the short end of the stick. SA Plastic refers to South Africa. We cannot emphasise enough how we absolutely have to take care of our own trash, and minimise it in any way we can. Not only for other living sentient land, sea and air creatures, but for ourselves and future generations. And pick up litter when we see it –

Plastics SA has taken a firm step to prevent plastic in our oceans

Do share on social media using #WATWB.

Today 27 April, is the day we voted in our first democratic election 24 years ago when Mr. Nelson Mandela became our president. It’s a public holiday, known as Freedom Day (still a long way to go though). The video below is so well worthwhile with live footage over the years. The 2 min video brought tears to my eyes. There’s even a moment of Mr. Mandela doing the jive! And our new pres Mr. Cyril Ramaphosa at the end –

Hope Joanna #HopeJoanna

When we have hope. We have everything.

To celebrate Freedom Day, GRID Worldwide have started a new social media campaign called #HopeJoanna… an idea to bring back hope and optimism to all South Africans.

“Let’s not forget about what the cost was. We have had so much adversity and many triumphs. Let’s never forget our struggle for freedom. But let’s love our diversity and let’s move ahead with intention. We are a great nation, never allow insecurity to cloud our resolve. Towards greatness. Share with your own love for our country.”

#HopeJoanna is more than just a campaign. It’s a social movement. And they are inviting each and every South African, to embark on this renewed journey of hope and optimism that we are experiencing in our country.

“We’ve all experienced the highs and lows of our beautiful South Africa. Even through the toughest of times, we have come out triumphant because we as a nation are resilient. And one thing always rings true, that when we have hope, we have everything.

We invite you to share your stories of hope with your fellow South Africans using #HopeJoanna. Let’s remind ourselves of all the wonderful, colourful and diverse things that we love about each other. Let’s come together in hope, because there is no better time than now.”

To kick off the campaign, the team have released an inspirational short film. Watch it below:

We Are The World Blogfest

It’s the 12th month of posting a blog for #WATWB on the last Friday of every month. The aim of the blogfest is to spread good news in a world that seems increasingly unstable. With the good news of humanity in action the negativity is lessened a little.

I’ve chosen a recent post that I found in the goodthingsguy.com started by Brent Lindeque here in South Africa. The link for my post is below.

When Elizabeth Ann Robertson’s husband’s died in 2010 she had to start a new life for herself.  She moved to be closer to her daughter in Somerset West, my old stomping ground in the western Cape a very ling time ago. What I loved about this story is how she took the bulls by the horns and graduated with a Master’s degree from Stellenbosch University at the age of 74.

So, one woman’s story of how it’s never too late to learn something new. I’m inspired – I’m aware that my choice this month is not about one person’s brave deed or kindness that helped out another or others; it’s about a woman taking her own life into her hands. I’m hoping that all who read it may be similarly inspired.

Thank you to our co-hosts this month: Belinda Witzenhausen,  Sylvia McGrath, Sylvia Stein  Shilpa GargEric Lahti . Do pop by and say hello to them. Their stories are bound to be wonderful. Add your name to the link below if you’d like to be part of #WATWB. You can add your name to the link here. Keep your story short, provide the link and mention why your choice of story is inspiring to you.

Thank you for reading. Have a blessed Easter and/or Passover. Keep safe. Keep centred. Let your light shine.

On the last Friday of every month, #WATWB posts a story linking to a story that is inspiring and shows humanity in action around the world. We are in our 11th month of spreading good news to dim the negativity –

Thank you to  Peter NenaEric LahtiRoshan Radhakrishnan and Inderpreet Kaur Uppal &  Shilpa Garg for being our co-hosts this month. Do pop by to say hello and see their posts and others from around the world for a dose of feel good news.

My post for this month ‘We Are the World Blogfest’ post is different this time round. I am not linking to any story, but just saying that last Wednesday, 14th February, I heard on the radio, close to midnight, the president of South Africa, resign. In his own words. For the last several weeks we’d been on a roller coaster, wondering  what would happen. The tension was palpable. We had been hoping that Jacob Zuma would either resign or be forced out – and face the charges brought against him. His resignation was the best Valentine’s gift I could have received.

For me and the citizens of South Africa, this shows the power of protest in civil society, the justice system, the voice of the ordinary person. Saying NO MORE to State Capture – unbridled corruption. State capture is the capture of state-owned enterprises eg our national airline, railways, power grid. Government gives tenders to preferred suppliers and receives from them HUGE kickbacks to go into their pockets. Needless to say, suppliers that offer better services at better costs are overlooked. Billions of rands have been lost to services that require this money – education, housing, health – 

So, Zuma is OUT and we have a new president, Mr. Cyril Ramaphosa sworn in last Friday. We anticipate a sweeping clean up of government ministers who have failed in their duty to the peoples of South Africa. There is a new sense of hope and unity in my country. I am inspired as I hope you will be too; although the wheels of justice grind exceedingly slow, we CAN use our voice and protest and say NO.

If you wish to partake in this monthly fest, please add your name to the linky list below, and put up the #WATWB badge on your sidebar. Posts to be 500 words or less,  providing a link to your story, and a mention of why it inspires you. The posts are not supposed to be political …

We Are The World Blogfest

All good wishes for 2018!

This is the first #WATWB blog post for 2018 (the 10th so far). It’s purpose is to spread goodwill around the world where all is mostly troubling not only on the political front but on our planet as well. It’s always cheering to be reminded of the goodness in the world. Our cohosts for this month are, with our thanks –

 Shilpa GargSimon FalkLynn HallbrooksEric LahtiDamyanti Biswas and Guilie Castillo. Please link with them to your posts and say hello.

I chose this story below as the drought here in South Africa is critical especially in 3 provinces, the Eastern, Western and Northern Cape. Cape Town faces NO WATER mid April. #Day Zero is what it’s called.

I hadn’t really thought about animals and water. Our cat here in Johannesburg has fresh water put out daily and I keep the bird bath in the garden topped up. People in drought stricken areas no doubt ensure their pets keep hydrated. But who would have thought about places of shelter for animals? Is this just taken for granted that this would automatically happen? I confess I hadn’t really thought about it. Hence, this story. 

I’ll be down in Cape Town from Johannesburg when you read this. I was there in early November when already people were getting used to the idea of using water wisely. I learned how to have the quickest of showers, one minute, the water from the shower into a bucket to be used in the toilets. People as from now are being restricted to 50 litres of water per day (although the post says 25 lt). Unless there’s rain, soon, the taps will be dry –

Fiona Barron used the idea of Herman H. le Roux and implemented the drive ... worthy heroes! Showing how we can EACH make a difference, and be water-wise whenever, wherever –

Should you wish to take part in this awareness initiative of spreading good will, a few basic guidelines: posts to be short, below 500 words. Link to a human news story on your blog, one that shows love, humanity, and brotherhood. Paste in an excerpt and tell us why it touched you. No story is too big or small, as long as it goes beyond religion and politics, into the core of humanity.

It’s the 9th #WATWB in which we bring you, dear reader, a spot of GOOD news. It is hoped seeing ordinary people do extraordinary things will inspire you in some way; even if, yet very significantly, to know that humanity in its best sense shows itself in many ways just about all the time  – even if just a smile –

It was hard for me to select an ‘event’ – there’ve been plenty. But this one touched my heart. And Prosper’s face is just beautiful and so handsome .. I loved how he was such a comfort to Annatjie.

I was tempted to use a link that Elaine Mansfield sent me in response to my last #WATWB. But I decided to keep it local and current. Elaine’s link is on Irene Sendlerowa (I know of her as Irene Sendler). Her story of rescuing people during in the Warsaw ghetto during WW2 is extraordinary. She died in May 2008. This is the link if you care to check it out. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2007/mar/15/secondworldwar.poland

#WATWB Sir Nicholas Winton

#WATWB: Sir Nicholas Winton.

We Are The World

It’s the 8th #We Are The World Blogfest and, as in the last 7 months, on the last Friday of each month, bloggers from around the world post an article that has caught our attention and brings a little light and inspiration into our sometimes murky world. 

I caught an interview of Sir Nicholas Winton with Stephen Sackur of BBC Hard Talk on TV last week. It was filmed in 2014. He died in July 2015 peacefully at home in Slough UK aged 106. You may know the story of this man who as a British citizen arranged for the excavation of children – 669 of them – from camps in Germany in 1939, to relocate to foster parents in England. It is an extraordinary story – it is a 30 minute interview of this 105 year old man who said that he had to do what he had to do, and with the help of his mother approached the Home Office in London. On arrival in Germany, he simply stated his purpose and set about effecting it. Please take the time whenever that may be to listen and be amazed and inspired … his answers are so brilliant and thought provoking. I’m glad I found the link – I know that I will listen again to this man who to the world is a hero, but as he said, he had to do what had to be done.  A comment I remember from this interview rather shook me. He was brought up as a Christian while a young boy and young man and found comfort in it. But when he got to Germany, he realised that both sides were praying to the same G.d to win the war. He gave up religion – or that kind of religion – when this hit home for him. He believes that life should be lived ethically .. if there were ethics, the world would be a better place. He states that he’s a pessimist. Actually, I note it’s only a 3 minute clip. I’ll have to search harder for the full interview and will put it up if and when I find it.

We Are The World Blogfest

It’s the last Friday of the month and the 7th month in which we post good news stories in We Are The World Blogfest #WATWB. For me, as the day draws near and time is tighter, I wonder about where I’ll find a good news story amongst all the sturm und drang prevalent in the world today.

Then I find there are plenty of stories in South Africa from which to choose. This one appealed to me – uniting against childhood hunger – this is in the wider Cape Town Flats area – and I thought I could link this to myself. I plan to check the Health app on my phone which measures the number of steps I do daily and if for example I do 5000 steps on a day or even 8000 steps in a day, I’ll put a corresponding amount in a jar – 4000 steps is R4.00, 8000 steps is R8 and at the end of the month donate the amount to Blisters for Bread. I’ve already put the jar out on my desk – 

I was telling my son who is visiting from Cape Town about this and he wondered why we don’t just do these things anyway – why people contribute and support when an initiative is eg climbing Kilimanjaro, bicycling across Africa, swimming to Robben Island and so on … I reckon it’s because we like the initiative and to feel part of a community? And we can support anonymously …

A Happy Tummy is a Happy Child

We Are The World Blogfest posts on the last Friday of every month. This is our 6th month. It is our aim that spreading stories of kindness in action can lessen the impact of dark and depressing news that assails us daily. As it says on its website: “There are many an oasis of love and light out there, stories that show compassion and the resilience of the human spirit. Sharing these stories increases our awareness of hope in our increasingly dark world.”  We thank the following team members for co-hosting this month. Do pop by their posts –
Simon FalkRoshan RadhakrishnanInderpreet Uppal, 
Lynn HallbrooksEric Lahti, and Mary J Giese,

Even though this story is from May 2017, it bears a re-viewing. We in South Africa are still in winter. I like this initiative; it shows how I and/or we can each do something for those in need. It could be anything really, a packet of food, a small bag of toiletries, a cool drink on a hot day for eg parking attendants.

South Africans are knitting thousands of scarves to leave in public places for those in need

The link below should you wish to take part and add your name:
The stories you share could be personal stories or of organisations and initiatives that are community oriented, whether the elderly, disabled, schools in need of books – the list is endless. All that is asked is that the stories are non-political, non-religious, why you like it and that the posts are 500 words or less showing the link –

We Are The World Blogfest

#WATWB posts on the last Friday of each month, as an invitation to inspiration and good news, bringing some cheer into our beleaguered world and the negative press. * see details below if you’d like to take part –

I met a friend for a quick coffee yesterday in the coffee shop at the medical clinic after her visit to a specialist. The medical centre is just up the road from me.

She’s hiring a car at the moment while hers is being fixed from a recent bashing by another car. Spare parts to be ordered from abroad. She was saying over coffee about being anxious and fearful on the road this last while in her hired car and whether being fearful attracts the very thing one fears.

She said: Once upon a time a long while ago she was away on holiday with strict instructions from her boss about the very important meeting on Monday the following week at 7.00 a.m. He also said to her, no breakdowns and inability to attend the meeting. At the time she thought that a very odd comment.

Driving over the Outeniqua Pass on her return to Johannesburg, her car suddenly stopped. Just like that. No warning. Dead. Kaput. I know that Pass – tricky at the best of times. Windy narrow roads, often in mist (one of my own photos) –

A man came by – he arranged for a tow truck and came with her to the next town, a long way away. All distances from one town to the next in the Karoo are long. That town’s car mechanics could not help, and there were no cars for hire in that small town. He drove her in his car to Bloemfontein while her car was towed. By my reckoning, he’d been with her for 700 kms.

In Bloemfontein she was able to hire a car. She was home safe and sound at 5.00 a.m. and in time for the Monday 7.00 a.m. meeting.

 She said that man was so kind, concerned only for her welfare. It was so unexpected she said – in talking with her, we agreed that people are kind, and it is beholden unto us to be kind at all times …

When my sons started driving many years ago I was always concerned about them being on the road. When I told a friend about not wanting to have ‘worrying energy’ about this, she said ‘just put them in the light’ – which is what I do, not only for them then, but for all, now and whenever …
