Do You Think About #poverty?

A couple of days ago, I donated two bags of groceries to Auckland City Mission.

The very next day I saw an article in the newspaper stating that the food queues outside the Mission were huge and unexpected, as there is still (just under) two weeks to go before #Christmas.

Apparently 250 people are being given food parcels per day.

How does that make you feel?

The thing that gets me the most is child #poverty. Right here in New Zealand, 1 out of 4 children go without their basic needs: staggering.

#poverty is everywhere, maybe next door to you, or down the street.

Just give a little this #Christmas if you can, you’ll be richer for it! #altruism
