So a couple of months ago I was sitting by the computer and just looking through my facebook feed. As every other night I see different pictures and videos of children, women and men being brutally murdered (those days were a lot about Aleppo). Every night, for a long time, I was so sad and felt so helpless. I kept looking at our fellow humans leaving this world too soon, children crying and mothers sreaming & I REALLY WANTED TO DO SOMETHING! I kept thinking that there is nothing I could do..
One night I saw a lot of sad and horrible pictures of syrian refugees leaving their homes and trying to escape a war they did not sign up for. I then thought about people that actually make it out of the cities and areas that are war zones and people leaving their homes with nothing… At that moment I knew that I wanted to help those people, the people with nothing. I may not be able to end the war or change that conflict but I can still help my brothers and sisters one way or another. So I kept thinking about how I could help. I reflected on what I like, or what I can make myself, that could raise money and the first thing I thought of was bracelets. I LOVE bracelets and thought why not make simple ones and sell them! I did not let times pass after coming up with that idea because that would have lead to me not doing anything so the second I came up with that idea I went and bought a couple of pearls.
I had some of my wonderful friends come over from time to time to make bracelets with me (since they wanted to hihi). That was so cozy and nice! May they get ajr for their effort and time. Extra shout out to Milka for making a lot of them! 🙂 Making the bracelets with friends and with so much love, made the whole process even more lovely. The bracelets were made with love, compassion and happiness & I hope that the money coming out of this process will make people in Syria feel loved, important and happy iA! 🙂
Bracelets you’ve seen before:
I hope everyone got something out of reading this post. I hope you know that YOU can help and YOU can make a change, if not a big one at least a small one, if not alone at least with friends or family. Something everyone can do is to pray to God to help our brothers and sisters.
