Infinite hope conquers unsustainable peace,

Inspired by the world.

Note: This blog is a humanity blog. Humanity doesn't limit to political borders, or religious thoughts. Humanity is anything and everything. It is what binds us together, what gives us our character. It provides us with power, with liberty, with empowerment. It can be anything related to animals and their abuse. Children and their freedom. Depressing or spirit-lifting. Condemning or celebrating. United, we can, we will, we are the change.

lifeisliterallylimited:

A teacher has saved the life of a seriously ill pupil by giving her one of his kidneys.
Ray Coe, 53, stepped in to rescue Alya Ahmed Ali, 13, after learning she was desperate for a donor.
Ayla, from Stratford, east London, suffered from renal failure. She also has hydrocephalus - water on the brain - which has resulted in her having severe learning difficulties.
Her worried mother told Mr Coe during the summer term last year that Ayla would be absent from school as she had to have kidney dialysis.
Concerned, Mr Coe, a special educational needs co-ordinator, asked what he could do to help her.
'I said “Can I put my name down as a donor?” I knew what being a donor meant and I knew there was a possibility it could go ahead and I knew the implications. I knew exactly what I was doing.
'There is a verse in the bible that says something like: “Maybe you were born for such a time as this”. It just clicked and I knew then that it was right.
'When we told Alya, she just gave me a big squeeze and her face lit up. It brings tears to my eyes whenever I think of that.'

"Please don’t cut my pajama’s sir, they’re new"

This is what a little girl in Aleppo, Syria is telling the cameraman as he checks her wound. Assad’s forces dropped a barrel bomb (barrel packed with TNT and tossed from a helicopter) onto this girl.

She goes on to say: “My mother was so happy today because I was able to walk” … refering to a previous operation she had to repair her legs from a previous bombing attack by the Assad regime.

This is Syria. There are Syria’s children. This is the ‘life’ they live under the Assad regime. 

Ya Raab help those who are helping this Ummah.

this makes me cry, yaaa rab help the people in Syria. 

I feel so utterly inadequate. My heart is breaking.

This is real. This is happening to children around the world and we have the audacity to be ungrateful…

if I offered you $20, would you take it?

How about if I crumpled it up?

Stepped on it?

you would probably take it even though it was crumpled and stepped on it. Do you know why?

Because it is still $20, and its worth has not changed.

The same goes for you; if you have a bad day, or if something bad happens to you, you are not worthless.

if someone crumples you up or steps on you, your worth does not change. You are still just as valuable as you were before.

fishingboatproceeds:

As the crisis in the Central African Republic worsens and the UN attempts to evacuate Muslims at risk, it seems likely that the refugee crisis in and around the CAR will be a long-term issue. The UN reports that more than 1.8 million people have already been displaced.
I was really encouraged to hear today from Save the Children that most of their $50,000 Project for Awesome grant will go to relief efforts in and around the Central African Republic. (The remainder will go toward ongoing relief efforts relating to the Syrian civil war.)
So I just wanted you to know where at least part of the P4A money is heading. As we hear from other organizations about how they’re spending their grants, I’ll let you know.

Annmarie Richards is a Jamaican who has raised 32 children, but not before she came from a broken home, in a struggling community herself. She experienced first-hand what it feels like to be a forgotten victim of Jamaica’s painful economic situation. She has since devoted her life to finding homeless children, raising them as her own, and giving them new opportunities.It’s her goal to take children off the streets and integrate them into school systems, giving them a foundation to build a wonderful life.Annmarie has helped numerous people turn their lives around. She has provided a home to women stuck in prostitution circles, drug addicts, and others. She not only takes troubled people off the streets, but she also helps them thrive in society! 




This was filmed by Matthew Butler, Joel Robbins and Jenny Ljung of GoBoka Play, a YouTube channel. They believe in telling positive stories that will better the world. “We also believe in something we call ‘Social Currency’ which is the notion that in this day and age, people’s influence across social media platforms are more valuable than a one-time personal monetary donation,” Robbins wrote by email.
If Richards’ video reaches 50,000 views by April 10th, the Make Life Better Foundation, Unicity’s charity foundation, will donate a computer lab to Richards’ kids.
What does views have anything with donating a computer lab to the children Annmarie supports?
Social currency is the notion that in this day and age, your influence across your social media platforms is more valuable than a one-time personal monetary donation.
They want to empower YouTube viewers to be a part of something bigger, and something they believe in too. But not all of us have the means to make large donations to causes we are passionate about.But if we rally together and Play It Forward, the genuine exposure we create will attract companies who believe in our cause too, companies who do have the means to donate sums that can make a real difference to people who need it most.This all sounds good, but how then do we get these sponsors to care?If we can change the way people look at social currency, perhaps we can also change the way big corporations look at “charitable donations.”What if we could create a culture where everyone wins? Meaningful causes gain YouTube exposure, exposure is measured by views, and views justify advertising budgets from major corporations. Before you know it, rather than spending thousands of dollars on a high-end ad campaign via network television, the corporations are reallocate it to produce a YouTube video for a third of the cost, with the ability to reach more people.
