World Humanitarian Day | August 19

“I will leave my mark , so everyone will know I was here…”

After watching this first initial video, I’m not sure what exactly got to me but it broke me into tears. More than anything I’ve always wanted to be a true Humanitarian. Be able to give back leave my mark that makes a real difference (big or small). Whether it be to help the older woman, Mary, who lives below me take out her trash, or give one of the food bags that I keep handy in case I see a homeless person who may need that meal – I try and help when and where I can.

Often people don’t realize how the smallest bit of help can make up the biggest part of someones day.

What can you do?
