3년 전

Hello steemians,

I am gratefull reading all your comments, today i choose and upvoted langford:

Thank you for your testimony, if we want to change humanity we need to share our story to educate the richer about inequality and help the poorer to have access to knowledge, food and healthcare.

Hopefully with internet everybody have access to knowledge, you don't need anybody to learn and be creative.

Steemit ecosystem give us a great opportunity to share wealth and create a strong and peacefull worldwilde community.

Reading your comment langford you gave me a new concept idea, nowadays, nobody should die from famine.

We should all contribute for a better world and insure the poorer to get at least the vital minimum:

ONE MEAL A DAY

Clearly if we are waiting for the system to change how many persons will die until humanity solve the famine problem.

I would like to start a new concept, obviously i can't help everyone on this earth with my voting power, but together we can make a difference!

Steemians if you need help from us, if you don't have a meal a day, simply comments on my daily ONE MEAL A DAY post and hopefully you will get upvotes from steemit community.

Please be trustworthy, if you comment for personal greed and you are not deeply in need for food or vital healthcare, you are taking money from steemians who really need it to stay alive and you should be ashamed.

Doing that you are responsible for this world to keep going wrong.

We can take our responsabilities and act for a better world now.

Share your toughts , are you willing to participate?

I would like to share one meal a day to the street kids here outside our house. I was doing it during my birthday last January. We gave a pack of spaghetti and a bread.

Can they have an access to internet and steemit somewhere?

·
·

They don’t have, I don’t know where’s their house. Some of them usually hangout at the corner of our street. It’s near the main road and a traffic light. When the light stops, they beg.

·
·

What I love, I do not know today. I do not have any wish or not. It is astonishing that sometimes, when I wake up in the deep night, I hear the voice of the unreal, I see the mythical scene. Break the silence of the night and roar in my ears, There is no sea on the back.
If I do not have the moon in the sky and I see the full moon, I can recognize every star in the sky in the clouds. And on some other days, when a well-lit air is heard, first you can hear the name of a musical instrument, a beautiful melody, then whoever sings sweet melody more than the birds of the dawn

Do not think we're floating in the sea at night,
A melodious tune to flutter in the lake, so that
I can talk whispered with you ..........

Good luck 😂

·
·

because of the poor life style most of them don't have access to phone

·
·
·

True that.

·
·

Fantastic post friend greetings thanks

·
·
·

Thank you.

·
·

I think they haven't internet access from where they live. I am very sad and concerned when reading this langford article. stay away from societies that deserve internet access to gain insight into daily knowledge and creativity. Hopefully in one day, they may get more attention in the form of food, medicine, sanitation of clean water, supplies and facilities are very adequate.

·

God bless you for your efforts.

·
·

Thank you 😊
It’s always good to pay it forward.

·

Am working with several people on this platform to bring soccour, to the hopeless people. thanks for this @Damarth

·
·

Keep it up 😊

One meal a day is a great initiative Sir @damarth. You are one if the kindest people I know. Thank You so much for supporting Faith, Hope and Love Foundation for the less priviledged children in Bwari community, Abuja,Nigeria. Thank You so much for upvoting our NEW YEAR'S PARTY POST.
Walking on the street some days ago, i met a frail-looking 3yr old boy, who I couldn't help falling in love with
IMG_20180101_162120.jpg
He looked so weak and couldn't even force a smile.
IMG_20180101_162013.jpg
I met his mother (who's picture is not post for anonymity) who also looked sick. She them told me they were both HIV positive. My heart bled😢 on hearing that. Although I didn't have any money on me that day. I made sure to spend half an hour with the family laughing and taking lots of pictures.
I'd love to do more for these people. I introduced steemit to them but, they can't even afford three-square-meals, not to talk of phones or internet services. That's something I hope to change soon, with your support and the support of steemit community.
Thank you Sir @damarth.
Awaiting your response in anticipation @adedoyinwealth

Oh thanks,this is indeed beautiful. This is what i always want to be doing.,i have been trying to raise more found for a sister in the neighbourhood,her leg swelled up and we have been unable to determine the cause. But she was told to get some antibiotics in the hospital,though i have given her part of the money but she still need more. My intention was to post about her in order to raise some money for her. I can't hold back my tears each i see her groaing in pains. I will definitely deliver if i can get anything here.
Below is the photo prove of the leg

Oh thank you already sir. I am sure she would be happy if she should find out somebody is helping her from the other side of the sea.
God bless your good heart sir.

When I saw this post, I remembered some of the kids I helped back then in southern Kaduna. These kids are from a very poor background and they lack help. It's like the world abandoned them.

I did the best I could do for them. They didn't have a teacher or a good school for learning, so most of them do not know how to communicate in English. They are living a jungle life, a life of hardship.

I ensured that I gave them the best I could to ensure they had a memorable Christmas and New year celebration. I still think of them and plan to go back there to help a few of them someday.

Thank you @damarth for the opportunity to help our world. So many people are really suffering in several parts of the world. The rich keep opressing the poor. No one wants to help anyone. We must do all we can to end this. I will do my best to support this initiative in helping as many steemians as possible. Thanks for this once again.

Steemit ecosystem give us a great opportunity to share wealth and create a strong and peaceful worldwide community.

The steemit ecosystem is a great place to be in. I haven't seen a platform that brings the world together. Different people from different races have come together for the growth of this community. Everyone is playing his/her part without discrimination and no obstacles.

Thanks to the founder of this great community and also thanks to you @damarth for keeping the community close to your heart.

thank you#damarth for you kindness At the point when your children see you giving cash, they're significantly more liable to receive a giving outlook as they grow up. I compose from individual experience. I've given cash to an assortment of foundations throughout the years and have constantly tried to advise my eight-year-old child of my endeavors. Last Christmas, when he and I were shopping at a shopping center, he recognized a booth for a philanthropy and instead of spending some of his apportioned cash on Christmas presents, he inquired as to whether we could support an eager youngster abroad. We joined without further ado. Do likewise with your children and you may see comparable outcomes.

I want to specially commend you @damarth for your innovative mind. The world would be a better place if we care for the needy, hungry and poor.

The photos were taken during our food hygiene and health awareness campaign to the St Mary's Senior Science College, Abak which is an overpopulated boarding school in a small rural community of Akwa Ibom State , Nigeria.
It was the world malaria day ,Aril 25, 2016.
We sensitized them on how to control and prevent malaria epidemic.
We organized quiz and debate competitions and gave out prices.
We gave out food stuffs, mosquito treated nets and clothing to all the students and even those in the Abak community.
Currently epidemiologic statistics proves a decline in both morbidity and mortality rate of malaria infection and typhoid fever after this major outreach led by our team of Akwa Ibom Medical Students.

Glad to read your new blog about sharing thoughts @damarth you just helped a lot of steemians. You have such a good heart, generous because you share some blessings to other people thru featuring & upvoting a lot of steemians.

"The entire life we have has it's real meaning in giving! He who least knows the real value of giving that can leave a distinctive footprint least knows what the essence of life is about."

There's no reason for us to be selfish to other people, it is a great feeling to share to someone and to help other people because giving is one of the essence of life. We should share to less fortunate people, and we need to think the we are lucky and blessed by our creator so why not share it to other people?

IMG_20180203_202518.jpg

In our country a lot of less fortunate families who eat once daily and they need our help. The photo above is one of example of a home of less fortunate neighbor that we want to help this time and the reason together with my husband we share the story of this family so that people will see and read the story and starting sharing some of their blessings.

Thank you @damarth for being a Sta. Clause to steemians thru your upvote. Have a great day and more blessings..

@damarth - I am very impressed with your humanitarian thoughts. It's very uplifting to see other people also working to make the world a better place.

I've upvoted you and I am resteeming.

I've worked as a volunteer in India for many years in the past so I have seen first handed great poverty. It really is overwelming.

Back in the U.S. there is also poverty. I've done a few things to help here. Donated to various charities like "Warm the Children" where new, winter clothes are purchased for children in need.

Also some random acts of kindness.....I always keep some granola bars in my car for a snack in case I get hungry. I passed an older homeless woman begging and noticed that no one was giving her anything. I got out of my car and gave her a granola bar, not knowing how she would like it as compared to her wanting some dollar bills. Well, she literally lit up and immediately started eating the bar. So I went inside the store and also bought her a cup of coffee. She was very happy and it also made my day! It feels good to give.

I don't have much voting power so I am sending you 1 SBD. Perhaps you can share it.

Another story featured by sir @damarth that touches most of steemians and I am one of those hundreds of steemians touch by the story of @langford.

I am not going to post my one meal a day because with God's grace I havent tried eating 1 meal in a day and I thanks God for that. I also thank #steemit for adding source of income and for the technology because without it its impossible for us to be here.

All I want is to help other people in our society and this mother of 5 children, suffers an illness without findings what kind of disease it is according to medical doctor. Her story touched my heart so much, she is a mother of 5 children her husband is a Fisherman who earns not fixed income daily sometimes he earn 100 philippine peso or $2.00 USD, the whole night fishing so sad.

IMG_20180203_201138.jpg

She is Mrs. Guadalupe Simbajon, also has an especial child son. Sometimes the family can't eat meal 3 times a day. The reason why i posted a blog about her story 7 days ago to gather help for her. But sad to say the blog post earned few SBD amounting to 4.9$ i feel so sad but nothing i can do about it because we cant force people to help thru upvotes.

I dont regret posting it because in my heart i did my best to share her story thinking that maybe someone with good heart will see and read her story and possible to help her situation.

This post is dedicated to her! I been helping her but its not enough because i am not that fortunate enough to help her. I wish to be a millionaire to help her more especially the medication.

Here's the full story: https://steemit.com/life/@jjeeppeerrxx143/steemit-health-helping-hand-mission-we-can-t-help-everyone-but-everyone-can-help-someone


My camera is not that clear tho, sorry about that. Just left the scene now
Did you wake up staring at your wardrobe, thinking you don't have enough clothes or that you need to go shopping? And for many of us, it's pretty simple: Get in the car, drive to the nearest mall and buy whatever you wish for.

There are millions who don't have the same means and yet they make things happen out of sheer determination.

Close to where I live, just a stone throw...there is a an abandoned house in which these little children live. They can't cater for themselves, they don't work to earn a little income to fend for themselves.

And its very touching that they keep increasing everyday. I myself I keep wondering why it is so. So what i do to help is that, from my own little income. I buy them food, snacks and I also check up on them daily. It's now as if its my responsibility to care for them @darmath please if u can in any way impact on the lives of these street children begging, it would really go a long way. I kno u are very kind. Ur actions are speaking for u. Please... They need everyones help. Use my steemit account as a point of contact to help these beggers please. For all i ask. Thanks everyone for ur upvote.

FB_IMG_1517657482519.jpg

this was during my last visit to the orphanage in Anua hospital, steemit can make us all do this even more.

thanks @Damarth
you are a Great guy

Here in Bangladesh a restaurant name Bogra Akboria Grand Hotel & Restaurant they serve their daily remaining foods to poor people everynight.They are doing this for 100 years.
Bangladesh is a developing country. Standing beside the poor people in Bangladesh are so much fewer.There are two or four people who helps these poor peoples.The founderer of this reastaurant Late Akbor Ali Miah started this at 1918.Before dying he said to his son that it should be continued.

If every rich people are starting this type of social steps our world become very nice.FB_IMG_1517654764849.jpg

if we do not love the common man in the street, no matter how much love we preach, we have no love. The wealth of the whole world can take every poor person out of the street, touching lives should not be kept for the rich only, it's for humanity, I love doing it, it gives hope to humanity.

this was for students in university of port harcourt and you can see the joy radiating from their faces... I also encouraged them to join sIMG_20171221_173128.jpgteemit

·

God bless you @bhoa you have touched lives in the university of portharcourt and God will reward you for it

·

I can see. It is a good thing you have done even though they don't look hungry to me.

I would love to start off by thanking @damarth for this initiative,i heard of this, of how you sir @damarth, tries to be a great blessing to numerous amounts of people every single day that passes by. You are a true leader and not a boss. May God greatly bless you for trying to contribute help towards humanity. It is a great thing that you noticed the need for provision of at least, one-meal per day to ensure the survival of people in various nations of the world.
In my home nation of Nigeria, the case is a heart-shattering one. Where the system is failing to recognize the need to help and feed the great number of children and youths.
Children in nigeria can hardly get access to adequate meals, or good sound education. For the case of feeding, the parents of the children that are in charge of feeding them do not even have the money to do so.
I would love to share a short story about my neigbours whose story is a very sad one. Their father died when they were very young. The weight of caring for the family has been on the shoulders of their mother ever since,and she was a just a secondary school teacher. Now, anyone in nigeria will know how bad the teaching profession has become; a profession that once used to be the very pride of the nation has now turned into a profession of misery. She was a teacher of a government owned public school, where her salary was just #30,000naira. Their house rent was about #15,000naira and rising. Doing the math, you'd know that their standard of living was very terrible. She would always go to different homes and help them wash their bathrooms and toilets just for her to get enough money to feed her children. Most of the time, my mother would split our meals at home and give them 70% of the mea, just to help them.
The government school's job was so terrible that they,ll even owe her for close to 6months. The system here is terrible.
The bridge between the poor and the rich here is mind boggling. Like the woman in the story, most people can't feed nor attend schools.
The rich just keep getting richer, gathering all of the money meant for the betterment of the people, and putting it all in their pockets.
Our hope for a better tomorrow in this country-Nigeria; are the youths of this time, but the state of schools in nigeria is heart breaking, children like my neigbours don't even have food to eat so as to even have the energy to attend classes and build their futures.
I took a trip to the state of kaduna-here in nigeria to see their classrooms, and i cried. I went on my knees and prayed to God to provide a means for me to help better the lives of the people around me.
The chairs they had to seat on were all broken and dilapidated,and the school uniforms they were putting on were all torn.
After that day, i went to back home to think on how to help the students attending the government school in my area. They also have torn, ripped school uniforms. I have been reflecting and thinking hard on how i can use this platform - steemit; to provide the materials needed to make good school uniforms for the students, and get a list of the children who have just one parent caring for them. I am hoping that i could start off something here on steemit and be able to create enough awareness about this issue and try my very possible best to provide food for their families, so that they can have a better life.

Kudos to you @damarth sir for outing up the campaign one meal a day

As for me, I can afford for my self one meal a day and I can even afford to help some people out wit a meal a day which I'm doing in my own little way.

I'm from Nigeria where the level of poverty is high and so many people dying of hunger because they cannot have one meal a day. The government of my country started a program sometime a to feed the school children one meal a day but due to the high level of corruption, the program is not functional any more.

In my own little way I've committed myself to helping people in need around me by helping them with food and clothing. I even have some I help out in paying their school fees.

These people are not yet on steemit because some of them cannot even use the internet. And the ones that can use internet don't have a device to access the internet. I've already told them all about steemit and we are working on getting a device for them. That is also one of the reasons I'm working hard to get to the top and gather enough steem power before they join so that I can help them better when they join.

Thanks for doing this and I want everyone to embrace this campaign of one meal a day

Personally, I grew up on the ghetto side and trust me when I say obtaining meals were an issue. I never knew how bad things were till I came of age. I was really thinking of how to help my family survive coupled with the recession when I was told about steemit. I may not have earned so much but the income I've gotten so far has helped me survive and helped my little sister. We (my little group) is planning on a secondary school outreach in March and prison outreach too. We're trying to raise the money, we hope to meet basic needs and I'm hoping to make little income from this platform to support this movement.
We may never know what people go through until we've passed through the path they're passing through.
@damarth, what more can I say? I'm glad this burning desire to help afford one meal per day for someone is also found in good people like you. We may not be able to change all that's happening in our today, but we can do the little we can. Therein lies the change and impact we seek.

In the year 2017 ago I get a little sustenance from God. And the sustenance can not afford to enjoy myself even though it's just a little bit, because with me seeing there are many more families who are starving and needing food and that person can not afford to buy rice or cook food Because the person does not have anything good that in terms of money or other, I was so sad to see that person and then touched my heart to take sustenance which was given to me is in by God to donate to those who are hungry and in dire need, after I donate a part of so many of me then also I have dinner with them because I think that person is eager to enjoy a very happy togetherness with dinner together. And this is the picture that I had time to capture first time togetherness

IMG_20170408_235119.jpg

@damarth, your writeup has made me emotional and reawakened my vision plus encouraged me that i am not alone. I visit orphanage homes a lot as well as school for the hndicapped. Recently, i visited a Juvenile Remand Home in Ilorin, Nigeria where i went to arrange a once in a week meeting with the inmates.

The truth is, there is so much we can do to bring food to tables. We can also create seminars and empower people with skills and if possible, create an establishment where the best participant is employed. So much can be done

Thanks @ damarth for bringing this opportunity.. This is a pic with my friends at the hostel wen we wre eating...

Native Nigeria food...IMG_20180203_104753.jpgIMG_20180203_104805.jpg

@damrath, Absolutely steemit platform really helpful for the any persons. Its contribute wealth thought via upvotes. You gave real inspiration post. Absolutely it encouraging me. Last month I can contribute some of my wealth to desolate peoples to share meals. Its only little bit person. But I was glad coz why I help another desolate peoples to give meals for solve their famine problem. I want to continue this unfortunately I can't take photography that moment coz they didn't faced in front of camera.
I Nice to decided follow you. Great concept.

Please be trustworthy, if you comment for personal greed and you are not deeply in need for food or vital healthcare, you are taking money from steemians who really need it to stay alive and you should be ashamed.

This one meal a day initiative is an excellent one. One that is geared towards touching the lives of everybody. You must be a humanitarian for this.

Really ,any one who participates for personal greed just ends up leaving the world in a circle of impunity and such a person doesnt deserve any good thing this world has to offer.

This initiative is for the poor and the poor should benefit but how do we get to know the poor? Does the poor have access to Internet connection? Does the poor have money to buy data to steem? Somehow I feel those who need this arnt here on steemit but I may be wrong.

I just feel you may end up giving this charity to those who already have enough and are greedy. I would want to participate if I am greedy but I am not, the world needs something better than greedy people so I will just sit and watch the deserving get all the assistance they need.

Thanks @damarth for this...

·

I really appreciate your kindness "ONE MEAL A DAY" @damarth ... It's true with steemit (upvote) we can help people - people who have no income to earn. People - people who are not to meet the needs of other life, even to eat once a day just hard. People who usually eat potluck can eat well. The problem is how they have Mobile and so on to access steemit while for everyday meals they are difficult especially to buy Mobile and so on. Therefore, it takes the steemit communities or private individuals of great-minded stemians to help assist those in distress who even eat once a day is difficult. And I hope the people who make up big in steemit do not mind to set aside some of their income to help those who live in distress.

·

I had the same thinking process, then i thought don't do it too many greedy persons will try to exploit the concept and you will be disappointed by humanity once again.

Maybe i fear something that will not happen and i take the risk not helping persons in need for few scammers.

It's better to trust each other trying to solve problems than fear and inaction.

·
·

I just pray your good deeds reach the right people.. So that they would know huminitarians still exist. @damarth

·
·

We will be agents to reach such people and report back with proof

·

@sistem. Yes it's truly they don't have access to internet. But you can help some poor people around you just l use too. Good contribution

This is great of you @damarth. You always have a way of putting smile on people's face. Before I came on Steemit some weeks ago I was struggling to take care of myself but now at least I can afford a meal a day.
Since I have come to Steemit, with the little I have I can buy my own meal, but I could like to help this poor little children around me. Some of them comes to school with empty stomach, torn out clothes, unkempt hair. If wish to help them and with my stay here on Steemit, I'll help them in every small way I can.

When I was a teacher, I use to frown at fellow teachers who beat children who came to school without brushing their mouth. I think we as teachers should show small love by buying tooth brush and tooth paste to those children and see if they will still come to school without brushing. This little act of kindness will make the world go round. Thank you @damarth

This is so great an initiative , this is relating to the situation currently in the school where i am currently serving as a youth corp member in my country Nigeria, see picture here...
IMG_20180129_123917.jpg

I hope to help them in a little way i can before i finish my service year

I'm really grateful for this opportunity, nothing brings happiness and satisfaction than helping others, currently, I took up the role of providing lunch for primary school pupils in my community because teachers complained that some of the school children go to school with an empty stomach, and they have recorded a large number of children fainting in school because of hunger, I'm a student too so I know what they go through.
So with the little income I make from being a sales girl, I provide lunch for the children onceIMG-20171218-WA0002.jpg a week, and I pray my income increases so I can provide something more than this.

I'M HELPING THE AFRICAN CHILD IN MY OWN LITTLE WAY

Share your toughts , are you willing to participate?

Yes I am willing to participate.
To be sincere, I have a plan of organising something like this soon.

I come from a country (Nigeria) where a lot of persons live in abject poverty.

This is my plan

  1. To use my steemit earnings and pay school fees of some bright students in selected schools.

  2. To organise a programme where follow steemians in my community can contribute from part of earnings to run a school feeding programme. I'm really working towards this and we'll start it soon.

For me, it's not all about self happiness, food, fun etc. It is about touching lives and putting smiles on others people's faces. That's what gives me joy and doing this for school children is my dreams and I pray I achieve it perfectly.

Thanks @damarth for this. It shows you care about humanity and you love giving. You'll surely be rewarded and you'll find happiness in doing this.

Happy Steeming

·

I hope you can notice my posts too sir @damarth 😊

·

We can all be creative for a better world, your projects look really helpfull!

I am one of your loyal followers @damarth .. Upvoting me gaved me a lot of motivation to grow here on steemit. I am currently helping the community starting to make a blog about my responsibility to the community, I started with my student who use her hobby in dancing as a tool to finish her studies and now in 2 months time she will finsh her highschool. We dont need to be professional slaves and work like robots to put something decent on our plate. We can do what we love and live the life that we want here on steemit. Thank you for being one of my inspirarion.

received_1476668645785927-01.jpeg

Wow this is more than great initiative!!

There is a problem because most of the people who don't have food on the table don't have a computer either. I don't talk about western poor people who have car, but no for fuel or who first buy branded cloth but then dont have money for food.

Local communities could help for those who don't have for food, they could provide place like libary where people can make their steemit account and be able to receive help.

It's just a thought.
Keep up a good work.

keep-up-the-good-work-27792808.png

·

Yes we have to find solution about that. Maybe steemians helping poor on the street could post their actions with photos, and we could vote.

·
·

Yes, that is a good idea. For example on a road to my previous job, i was passing by a homeless shelter. I have often stopped and give something to them, mostly mine or my friends cloth wich we don't use anymore.
But it would be great to go there and help them make Steemit account. I will think about that idea.

This is a nice initiative by @damarth which i expect everyone to be sincere with.

Of course, i don't give out food or meal but i prefer to take them to an eatery and pay for their meal. I did this while i had a short stay in the northern part of nigeria where i had to take this hausa kids (Almajiri) to a food joint and pay their bill.

Another one i am embarking upon today is giving out those cloth am not wearing again. This is the little i felt i can be of help to those needy (kids) around me here for now.

This has being a gesture i and my family have received from others before, though things are not yet as expected but we can boost of the normal square meal and wear therefore, it is a thing of joy giving back to the society whenever it is available and necessary.

You are an awesome person @ damarth.I have been following your posts for at some point now.You are great motivation to me and a large group of other steemians.I plan to tow the same line when I have the means.keep doing what you are doing man.

I can see the potential for this to grow and be very rewarding to the hearts and souls of those doing the giving, & it would be life changing for the person being helped! I live in the Dallas, Tx- by no means is it like many of our poorer countries who live in extreme poverty, & it is hearbreaking to think of anyone not being able to eat especially a child! Where I live we have tons of homeless, under every bridge in downtown, we even have an area named tent city that is under several bridges and the city of Dallas closed it down last yr leaving the homeles families who lost their jobs, homes due to many different circumstances, ended up divorced & with nothing, were released from the military and had nowhere to go, military veterans that served our country people from all walks of life- took away all they had to call home or a commumity ...just because people in power with money felt that they we're creating an eyesore and a nuisance for everyday people or people who chose to visit Dallas or vacation here, our shelters are too full and there's nowhere for them to go- so our homeless lost all- in the last months they have set up in other areas and we have a new "tent city" the homeless people actually go out of their way to keep it clean and try not to draw attention to themselves so they are not "evicted" per say, yet again..when they have nothing more than a tarp on string to call home...myself and my husband and kids donate anything we can from our home,or thrift store or things donated by family or friends- be it blankets, coats clothes etc....whenever we can..I make a point to buy or make food for whoever I can that is waiting outside the whataburger, or underpasses down the street from my work 3 nights a wk, my manager also feeds them if they come into the steakhouse and ask for food, I take my kids and let them donate toys & clothes that they pick out themselves from their own stuff so they can see the importance of helping other children, & how very fortunate they are, we go pick up pizzas and drop them off...it is not a lot but we are only one small family and we do what we can, because prior to having our kids about 15 yrs ago myself and my husband had to live in our car for a couple months because his job closed down and we couldnt make it..he got a new job and we saved until we could put our incomes together to get a place again, but in the mean time we still had our carpayment and insurance and phones and other bills so we couldnt waste money on hotels it was unrealistic- but we came up and then got pregnant with our son and since then every yr life gets a little better! we now have 3 kids and we both work and have 2 cars and all the bills that come along with a family and a house, we have gotten better at saving and are so happy to have survived our struggles, but it humbled us, helped us realise what was most important & made us appreciate everything- it is not something we ever thought would happen to us but bam! It did! If more people came together and just helped 1 homeless family a day can you imagine the difference it would create- I am not saying it will change the world but it will sure help make it a better one! I love this idea, I see some people questioning how they will know if it is going to the right place or cause- this is one of those times you just have to do it it out of the goodness of your heart and hope the reciever is a true humanitarian! All good things come back to you! As long as you do it for the right reasons! I dont need meals or help- I just wanted to share my views/story and what we do to help, and just add that I love how this platform brings the world together...I love it! Surprises me daily!

I would like to commend this generous offer you are giving us, because not everyone that has, really care about the indigent.
I live in a not so poor community in Nigeria, but after a recent outbreak of lassa fever in the area, good food has been had to come by.
Me and my friends take out some week days once in a while to share some food that are contributed from other communities. The food is never enough though and we only wish we could do more to alleviate the sufferings of these affected individuals.
Thanks @damarth because I have once been a beneficiary of your kindness.
This one day a meal program could the reason an extra child does not go to bed hungry.
Thanks in appreciation of your help.

@damarth, thanks for this opportunity.
This life eh.
Have been trying to raise help for people affected with leprosy (PAL) but nothing.

https://steemit.com/charity/@magdnrobinson/help-for-the-pals-309e329e21d41

The people that needs our help sir, are in no way here on Steemit, not at all, they are out there.
I as an individual believe so much in volunteerism and after graduation last year from the department of biochemistry, I joined different programs that are involved in volunteerism.
Yesterday aur-clinic outreach,(ACOF) did an awareness campaign on cancer in a secondary, community and trust me, the students were so much delighted with what they heard.
Am yet to write in details.

Also, I was asking, not asking begging a curator in my country to resteem my post so alot of people can see it and might get interested but nothing, only a friend I met on discord did so for me.
What a world.

In essence, I am set 100% to go anywhere anytime to help people out there.
Poverty is not in Steemit, Steemit platform has given so many people opportunity to wealth.
Those in needs are out there, yes they are and they need help.

Tomorrow Sunday, we (medical students of the University of uyo) are going to visit the people affected with leprosy, just to assist in what we can.

But lemme thank you first and tell you that on Sunday we visited the hospital of the PAL(p
Persons affected with leprosy) and It was a success.
Thanks so so much

Hi @damarth,,,

Thank you for giving opportunity to the people who need it.

Hopefully through this very social post can be a hope that has been expected by everyone. Steemit has become the biggest part of my life. In my area aceh many users of this incredibly incredible platform.

Even I have built a small community that originated from my family and close friends so that users who enter the steemit platform through me can be directed in managing this incredible platform.

https://steemit.com/comunity/@boyasyie/my-achievements-since-joining-steemit-com

You can see my post about introducing themselves here. I aim, through this platform can change the economy of everyone for the better. even my own through my sister account @bawangmerah230 hire delegates around 4000 sp so that the community can be passionate in writing their work. now it's about 20 more people who join through me.

They are people who do not know how to work. but I hope through this platform can give us a good economy.

Maybe, in my opinion sp delegation is the best thing that can help many people as long as, everyone can be patient and firm in managing this platform.

by, @boyasyie

I must commend you for this movement.
But life is funny.
how?
Which steemian will say he doesn't have a meal in a day when they get paid for posting every day at least 0.5$ a day.
C'mon, now sir you posted and come see the flock of messages, all for upvote.
The last time you posted something on share your thoughts, I never came for the upvote or for myself, but for someone @magdnrobinson. He is doing a good work in volunteerism.

Now the actual people that needs this help are not on Steemit sir, no not one bit, they don't even know how to make use of the internet let alone but data bundles.

This is my own thoughts.

This post made me recall the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations wherein they are doing every way possible in order to solve those issues humans are suffering for decades now.

Their target is to make a change for everyone and live a better life in the year 2030.

If we noticed the first four goals refers to poverty, hunger, good health and well-being and lack of education.

09-09-E-SDG-Poster.jpg

I believe one of the major reasons why people remains poor is the lack of education. When we are educated we can always find good paying job that could address the financial needs of the family.

I may not experience a one day meal in my lifetime but my family did experienced having difficulty in buying for food because there was no more money.

I remember when we get the chance to loan a 1 sack of rice, my parents used to divide it to the rest of their married children and those people who are dependent to them.

That is why I appreciate them for having a big heart, that even in hardships they still think of the welfare other people.

Another, I considered funny thing that I could think in order to eradicate poverty is for the rich to share part of their wealth to the least of their brothers and sisters.

They may be outdone certainly in number by those people who are in poverty line but if all of them will share, perhaps such action could at least curtail the percentage of those who are suffering and dying of hunger by a considerable number.

Funny but I wish I am rich so I could help in a maximum level.

Nice initiative there @Damarth, the world could definitely use more people who think with their heart rather than their wallet. I'm a skeptic at heart and throughout my life I haven't really done much for anyone but myself. A few years ago a lot of things changed in my life and I've now had the pleasure of giving a bit back to those who needs it, both through supporting various help groups but also through volunteer work in the Philippines with @iwanderela.
Recently I had an interaction with @sharonomics that opened my eyes to what I can do on steemit to help other steemians out. I don't have a huge SP yet or a lot of followers that I can resteem to but I've put up a giveaway to share whatever I got with someone who needs it.
I know it's not close to feeding a hungry soul in the real world, but taking baby steps here, it'll come :)

hi,damarth , first of all , i will say thank you for your contribution to the steemit community all the time. With your encouragement, I will cherish the opportunity to share my thoughts and ideas on this platform. It can also help those who need our help to give my upvote . every day i am very happy to share my thoughts with steemians , that's really good feeling . i wish our world is getting better and better and our life is colourful and meaningful. thanks again for your always support . let's move ahead !

I am a public school teacher in the Philippines and there are so many cases of malnutrition among our students. The culprit -- poverty and lack of opprtunities to earn. In our school, we initiated a feeding program for all students who are malnurished. We always look for stakeholders and sponsorship to support this program. At the moment we have around 80 students whom we feed everyday, and the number is growing. Although many politicians have already pledged to help, we are not closing our doors for other sponsorships, especially from my fellow Steemians.

Its great to see that someone still exists out here who really is sincere enough to know that many persons are trying to be creative for the purpose of making money here on steemit. If it means anything to you, I would gladly say, that I for one am really proud of you sir @damarth. Food and water are most essential to our continuity as living things. Yet, in my country and many other places in the world, people see more of blood and tears than water. Excuse me to point out the fact that there is enough water at supply units but not enough good will and good hearts to pour water out to every one. Steemit my friend has brought good will to my life and the lives of those I have introduced this to. Although I haven't been active, and haven't made much from it because I started few weeks to the resumption to my final year session studying a gruesome course as architecture, for the fact that my pals are making it big and upgrading their standard of living from this, are testaments of hope for a better yet. In my dialect sir, "osanobua a kpa uwe" @damarth. I pray for more humans like you to spring up and fuel initiatives and innovations. My best friend @yourmercury(He'll kill me) is an exceptional singer. He was a very shy one too and a poor shy one at that (I'm dead). He never sang to people he never went to a studio he never sang to a guitar in his life not until December wen he joined steemit and the open mic did my friend man up and sang to a video recorder and even won on the open mic contest. Now he sings every week and has got finally a good phone and some cool wears lol. My point, the fact that he was appreciated in text and cryptos was a driving force to this boy's commitment to creativity. I'm glad that there is this platform and that there are persons like you on this platform. Tomorrow morning when you wake up from bed, look at your mirror and know that you just fed many persons who probably would have eaten less or something else or non at all. Your are the man @damarth. God bless you.

Regards Regards to all, from the entrance to the community to Steemit I thought it was the country where I come from (Venezuela) who was in a social crisis, in the absence of food, education and quality medical assistance, but I have seen under several testimonies that many countries are under the same condition.

Sad to see how humanity is self-destructing.

Gentlemen we must be guarantors and participate in the help of our neighbor, remember Jesus Christ did not send us to love our neighbor as ourselves

@damarth we thank you from the heart that you are the one of the GREAT EXAMPLE, you are worthy of admiration.

And I join your work "ONE FOOD A DAY"

Obviously this concept is like assuring the common Man who does manbwho does not have the certainty of feeding well at least a day meal, back here in Africa thw hunger is so much in countries like Somalia and Zimbabwe,

However I contribute mly own quota in the little way I can certainly.

Your cause is example certainly, and believe me, I'm in support of your selflessness.

Thanks for your help @damarth, as very many people need, you can help through the internet with the steemit.
I really hope for you, do not ever orangutans people who need you.
The world knows, you are someone who is needed in steemit.
On this earth are now very much still lack of food, they do not know where to look.
Thank you for @damarth who has helped all the people of steemit users.
Because the internet is now a very good way to communicate with all countries, including with you @damarth.

In this place called life, God would awaays put
people like you Sir to represent him here on earth. God bless you... "A meal a day"

This is a really nice initiative @damarth . I was priviledged to be part of a project in 2016 that help feed homeless children on the streets and this was a really great initiative as we could all see the joy on their faces. Some could not express their gratitude in words but I could see the burdens that we lifted off their shoulders by just providing a meal for these people. From the pregnant mothers to the little children, everyone was able to benefit in one way or another. I most definitely would love to do something like that this year as there is no end to charitable works. We all need each other to survive and I am in full support of this "a meal a day" project. Nothing trumps genuine charity and care. The world is not a very good place but if we try in our little capacities then I am sure we can make a difference..

Am part of a small charity group with my friends called "the smile campaign". We do the best best we can to help the less privileged.
This is myself when we went to share clothes and shoes for beggars. Screenshot_20180205-152008.jpg

Very impressive work. But be sure if all are telling the truth

They are going to school about 10km

I've read @lagford full commentary, when he commented your post. I always objective to inequality. We all are humans. Why so humans divided both parties of rich and poor. Any time to spend for poorer to help them. They want to basically foods, sanitary facilities, if kids- school bags, books, pencils etc... If nations join together under the one organization we can change the world seriously. I have no longer wealth facility. But I gave only 05 kids choosing any year to share books, pens, bags and other necessary things. Its really happy to me. Thanks for giving me opportunity here.

I am indeed really surprise and amazed at work I'm going into

That's great initiative @damrath. I have past experience our family helped children without their parents. Actually I really sad looked their tears. Think how many peoples had without deserve facilities. Why some peoples selfish? For me I ready to help another poor peoples included children if i have ability.
I think steemit community is the great community indeed. So we can give some help to them across our earnings. Never think I can't do anything. Please say Yes I can do... If we can help learning children it would be more valuable our life.

With the steemit we can share and add insight and we can see the situation of countries in the world

This is awesome of you @damarth. You generally have a method for putting favor individuals' face. Before I went ahead Steemit half a month back I was attempting to deal with myself however now in any event I can bear the cost of a supper daily.

Since I have come to Steemit, with the little I have I can purchase my own dinner, yet I could get a kick out of the chance to help this poor little youngsters around me. Some of them comes to class with purge stomach, detached garments, unkempt hair. On the off chance that desire to help them and with my stay here on Steemit, I'll enable them in each little route I to can.

When I was an instructor, I use to glare at kindred educators who beat kids who came to class without brushing their mouth. I figure we as educators should demonstrate little love by purchasing tooth brush and tooth glue to those kids and check whether they will even now come to class without brushing. This little demonstration of graciousness will make life as we know it possible. Much obliged to you @damarth

Am a Nigerian by birth, i am a living testimony to the daily struggle and survival for food.....every day thousands of people are dieing of hunger, nigeria is a blessed country with so many mineral resources yet the standard of living is going from bad to worst, 5 year's ago the prices of fuel was #65 naria, but today the price #260...

Education is now made for the rich, as a poor man can not afford to pay his fee's, the minimum wage is #18,000 naria and the standard of living and the hiking of price is 2x greater than the minimum wage.

When i was growing up as a kid with my siblings, life was like hell, we have to work (haking) and even beg before we eat,we where raised by my mother as my father travelled to another state within the country to search for better life for us.

I thank God for steemit which has changed my story around, am still a newbies anyway but i know i have lot to learn and lifes to change, happiness is found in giving.

I have a vision to transfer the lifes of others and help my brothers and sisters who are still in the streets hustling to survive, i believe that steemit would feed the world.

Wow fantastis upvote, and then thank you upvote me.

I just wish we could help everyone... I just wish so
Nice on @damarth... We can only try as we can stretch.
Even without steemit, I encourage us all, let us all try to be compassionate. .. The truth is that your little sacrifice will go a long way to help someone. It mustn't be something very huge.
That little girl you help get a sandals or that young boy you give little cash or that brilliant student you helped raise his fee or that family man you helped with a menial job could be the gateway for helping several others.

Remember, the hand that giveth is usually above, so let's keep giving

To all people doing good in ways like @damarth does on steemit, You guys are the real MVPs. Keep doing it, the world is keepin records.

I will also love to propose something, can steemians in their different locations participate in community projects especially those of us in the resource poor countries?

We're planning some down here in portharcourt.

Thank you so much for this post @damarth .Do not forget to do good and share your hand, because such sacrifices pleasing God. " We must not forget to "do good", that is, to help others, as well as "share our possibilities". For example, parents of wise parents can teach their children to help in their daily work with the elderly, write a card to a sick person, go to visit or telephone to be supportive and take care of other poor or sick children. So children learn to be kind and generous every day of the year...

Thank you @damarth for giving us this platform to share our experiences. You are really a positive influence to us. I greatly appreciate to your work .

The way of thinking is very beautiful. you are trying to help people in difficult situations. The idea of "ONE MEAL DAY" is very good and I hope to succeed. The power on the screen is very low, but if I succeed in upgrading in the future I would like to organize donations with you. It hurts me to know that people in the world need help. As I see the rich living in luxury. But this is the end of the capitalist system. Heads of state need to do something to prevent this. @damarth

Thank you for sharing this beautiful writing with @longford and supporting it @damarth

Unfortunately, what you say is true. The world is a ruthless place. A lot of people are hungry. Some people are adding fortune to their wealth. Politicians talk about the per capita income. Is this ridiculous because there are so many poor people there are so many per capita income? Why do people keep being selfish? A shoe, an hour, why a shoe is paid so high. That money is spent on the annual dinner requirement of 10 people in Africa. Syrian people fleeing from war. The world keeps turning while starving. This is not really just. This world is really a ruthless and unjust place. @longfourd brother wishes your wishes happen. You can help people. I hope everyone can get this up to you.

I really appreciate your kindness @damarth ... It's true with steemit (upvote) we can help people - people who have no income to earn. People - people who are not to meet the needs of other life, even to eat once a day just hard. People who usually eat potluck can eat well. The problem is how they have Mobile and so on to access steemit while for everyday meals they are difficult especially to buy Mobile and so on. Therefore, it takes the steemit communities or private individuals of great-minded stemians to help assist those in distress who even eat once a day is difficult. And I hope the people who make up big in steemit do not mind to set aside some of their income to help those who live in distress.

That's a great idea @damarth, there so many poor people in the world today. As statistics shows, 80%of the world population live on less than $10 daily. I am happy that finally soneone is looking into the affairs of humanity. Its a great one!

@damarth sir ...
Actualy....What I learned here :
Steemit is not only about UPVOTES & Money
It is about writing..
It is about reading..
It is about knowing people and their side of the story..
It is about learning..
It is about finding a path to follow..
It is about keeping yourself motivated to write better..
It is about broadening your thinking..
It is about spending your time productively..
It is about making you think from a different perspective..
It is about writing without any expectations of UPVOTES....

The steemit ecosystem is a great place to be in.Since I joined steemit I learned a lot of things.When I joined I was selfish , I wanted everything for me , but in time I learned to share with others.

For me steeemit is like home.It changed me a lot.

Thank you :)
.

I'm so gratful to you by this act which you wnat to contribute with this community. I agreed with you and the new concept you raised here is really remarkable and brand new which helps numbers of steeminas in their lives. They can get one meal a day if they are really want if they are poor. No doubt, there are numbers of people can be greedy and needy as well. Choose what you think they deserve. :)

Honestly speaking, I eat meal two times a day which is not a rich food but I can feed my tummy with it and I'm with it that GOD gives us what we need to eat a day to maintain our digestive system and body to work more to do hard work and to live happily for my family who needs my support because my father is retired now so I'm one who have to work hard to feed other siblings and parents.

I also have a strong reason to participate in it because near to my house many people are beggars and always come to my home to ask money and food. I will give them too

Still, I would love to participate in your daily contest. :) Thumbs Up for this kind of act. You are so kind to us even I can't express my feelings. :)

"ONE DAY A MEAL...?"

Very good idea and hopefully other stemians follow or have ideas like you @damarth. Indeed with such ideas we will not be able to remove hunger from this world, but at least we can reduce their suffering a little. The more stigma like-minded you are, the more the people of distress and the hungry will be helped.

In my opinion, there's nothing as fulfiling as meeting a need, so I try to do so in the little ways I can.
I didn't grow up a very privileged child, so I have tasted first hand what it feels like to have nothing or less than nothing.
Annually, my family picks a day to visit an orphanage to give them food and clothing.
In fellowship occasionally we take food to hospitals, prisons(if we're permitted) or schools.
Sometimes we organize a food fair for the benefit of as many people as we can afford.

It is so beautiful to know that there are people who are so interested in the welfare of others. Thank you so much for this initiative @damarth
I've gone through all the comments here. You are all wonderful people. God bless!

well I am truly feel happy to join this comunity and this world best platfarm ...and I discovered numerous god individual like your @damarth, who are constantly prepared for help other people and listen others considerations for benefit a few and dependably energize all of here with your prizes and your graciousness and furthermore for the most part individual here are incredible which are prepared for help ohters and stand all them who are new and some poor here and furthermore in entire world with thier compensates and winning additionally I think that its like as a family where each a large number of us feel torment of others ....hope steemit will be an awesome platfarm which having numerous sources and spending plan for complete destitution out of steemit in entire world

I accept on steemit control that it can change the framework and can take care of the considerable number of issues on the off chance that we do it with solidarity with great for all intents and purposes work and furthermore with great idea as in your post.

Thank you for latest update news.... You are a great person... I really like you sir..... I resteemed your lovely post.... ❤️

of course everyone would be ready to participate, I hope too, to help each other in this steemit, can make enormous contributions and great influence, and can help each other weak to advance the economy on this earth, and I also agree with what you have to share and support for steemit progress, we are united, we can? i like steemit ... @damarth

I am very fond of hearing about the post @damarth, because the world is now too many people who are hungry and have no money to buy food for everyday, and money is very hard to find, because the job vacancy, which is hard to find, and in the presence This steemit, hopefully able to make money in this steemit, if I am wrong answer I apologize @damarth.

No one is ugly💪
Sometimes I think for myself, why am I ugly?😐
Why my face is like this and like that?
Why is my color tan not white?
Why do I have pimples?
Why am I not attractive to girls?

I asked my mother, why am I born ugly?
Then my mother told me, there is no such thing as ugly but there is such thing as "judgemental"
God didn't make even one ugly human/living things. Only the people makes one person ugly. They judge people, they will tell you that you are ugly.
It is because they are insecure, they are jealous.
We have our own beauty and our own passion.

Just smile and don't listen to yhe negative things they say, you yourself are a gift from God, don't let them crush you juat because of telling you that you're ugly.
Just think that they are jealous it's because you have a beautiful heart and beautiful attitude.

Don't stop smiling, your smile is the number one most attractive to all of us.
Why if you are not white? Skin color can't change who you are, it only change your appearance but not your personality.
Why if you have pimples? Pimples makes you look matured and makes you look cute.
What if you are not attractive to girls? There is a right time and a right girl for you.
True girl who loves you don't look at your face if it is great or not, the one will look at your personality if you have a great heart.

I am who I am and you are who you are.

If I am I because I am I, and you are you because you are you, then I am I and you are you. But if I am I because you are you and you are you because I am I, then I am not I and you are not you!

There's just simply no such thing as ugly.

When you call someone ugly or even think of yourself so lowly, it’s because you’re looking through the glass handed to you by the media, by society, by others.

LEAVE A PEACEFUL LIFE

There's no such thing as "UGLY"

SMIIIIIILLLLLLEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

I know a couple of kids in my street that don't have parents. Every morning before I go to school, I make sure to take extra food from my house without the consent of my parents and give to them just so they can eat. Sometimes I take the clothes my younger siblings do not use any longer and give it to them, because they always wear rags.
This would be a prime opportunity to help them the more and to improve how they live.
I hope steemit can help me in order to help them.

Really, this is a good intention, but am a little bit unconfortable with it. Please don't get me wrong, it is good to be of help to the needy. My fear, Humans nature are deceptive sometime, I pray this opportunity will not be abused by some greedy people.Anyways, it is a nice concept if people will not abuse the opportunity.

about healthy eating we always remember for fear of hunger and poor people not to die kanar he always close to die ....

@damarth this is a nice initiative one meal a day is gonna give succour to the needey and the less priviledge it wil be a therapeutic process of making people who are suffering to know theres still hope. in my surrounding here many people need help in which i my self i am not capable of helping because i dont have much. @damarth you wouldnt be forgotten if through steem it people are able to make up there life. a picture here shows children who need succour they are malnourished each day i see them i feel for them.there parentsmake them to beg for food because they cant fend for them. no school no money no proper clothing they need help @damarth will be glad if favourable solutions will be granted to them thanksHunger-Children.jpg

Great Information for me...
The steem condition is an amazing spot to be in. I haven't seen a phase that joins the world. Different people from different races have gotten together for the advancement of this gathering.

I have to continue with this, deplorably, I can't take photography that moment coz they didn't look before the camera. This little exhibit of liberality will influence life as we to know it conceivable. Thankful to you.
-.jpg

I know several times i have stayed without even one meal a day. So when i read your post, it brings tears of joy to my heart that someone knows that feeling. Thank you @landford for putting the post and attracting @damarth and thank you @damarth for this initiative. I support you!

@damarth I want to really thank you and appreciate you because you are indeed a hero. In a world where greed is the order of the day people like you give me hope that there's still good left on earth.
I'm a Nigerian and I too have been a victim of the system, I mean it's hard not to be. I don't want to go into details.
Please @damarth do keep up the good work.

I truly value your effort but if people can't afford one meal a day, how do we expect them to have acces to internet and furthermore a steemit account. As I said I really appreciate what you're doing and think it's barbaric some people aren't even able to afford basic human needs but I think if a service like this would be offered it'd only be used by greedy people who want more money/steem power.

Amazing amazing post @damarth.
You saw the post and felt for him, but we grew up together as best of friends. Lol you could imagine how I would feel and how I have always felt. Not just a one day feelings but it’s just a daily routine.
This guy is an amazing fellow and a strong man, a man who never gives up in anything he’s doing.
I believe I can tell you more about him because he’s my brother from another mother.
This is a guy we both strive together even when my father ran and left my mom as I said in the earlier comments before, this man never stops encouraging me. Even with his hard condition he was going through.
But today am happy he’s living a happy life.
And if he’ll permit me to say this, a major contributor to his life today is steemit.

HE IS NOW SELF DEPENDENT

  • Pays his fees on his own
  • takes care of his younger ones
  • even help me Pay some of my bills before introducing me to steemit.
  • always talks about assisting his mom
  • wear good clothes
  • bought a good phone
  • took the responsibilities of his elder sisters child

What more can I say... am so happy to see this post from you @damarth.

This is the man6A179045-D5FF-451C-8157-2362CAF4C1DC.jpeg

This can be used to encourage other young steemians.

THANK YOU

You are an amazing fellow @ damarth.I have been following your activities for quite sometime now.You are a big inspiration to me and a host of other steemians.I hope to tow thesame line as soon as I have the means.keep doing what you are doing man.I sure know gazillion lives will be touched by your act of kindness.

God bless you @damarth. I am thankful to God that I can afford food.

I am one of the lucky ones.

The internally displaced people that have trooped into the capital city of Nigeria, Abuja, because of the insurgency in the North are not so lucky.

To contribute my quota, I help by giving alms when I can. The truth is that the economic situation in Nigeria is not friendly and everybody is struggling.

I believe it will get better as far as we help one another. Thank you for your help. You inspire me to help people with the little I have.

God bless you.

I have always have the passion to give ONE MEAL A DAY to the poor, the needy and the lessprevillage but I have not been opportuned...I will be the world most happiest girl if am given just one chance to show I care and put a long lasting joy on the faces of this beings .

IMG_20180203_143449.jpgits a very nice thing.
If we all are conscious and work spiritually then the beautiful world will be.there are still maney poor people in the world with whom we stand to stand by.we have to go ahead eith our conscience and intellect.i agree with your thoughts.and i want participate in here

I wish you can notice my blog to sir😊 about "No one is ugly"

Wow nice one and a very great idea, I will be ready to support in any little way I can. #1mealAday let go

I have found the theme of the paper very good and successful.I'm not very good at present but I will join you in the course of time. I am the result of the people of the capitalist system, the end of all of us. duramaz.I am indeed really surprise and amazed at work

The more we share the life, the more the life of the person is on the right path.@damarth

This is a very selfless and thoughtful initiative.
Its true that most people can hardly afford to meet up with a meal a day, also they can't even access to the internet,but we who have access to these things can help them with the little we have. At least I can say for sure that the average person here knows someone who struggles to get a meal a day. We can help them even as we are being help right here.
@damarth, you are one of the most selfless person I have seen on steemit and on earth.

thank demarth for your great efford!The problem with charity organizations coming to help the poor in poor countries is that they tend to teach the people how to eat fish and not how to fish. The problem become complex as they bring the fish from abroad ignoring the local fisherman who already new how to fish instead how supporting the fisherman to teach more people how to fish. In a short while even the fisherman who can no longer sell his fish as the population now depend on the little manna dropped by charity organizations. So the fishermen also foil their ship and join the queue. A long term solution would be finding program and platform to engage the community to farm and instead of bringing expert from abroad, they should partner with the locals who were already in the field. This is the shortsightedness of charity organizations.
we must help person and say to him that you must help another person and that goes so on that no povert no one can sleep without meal,,
thanks for helping other....

"You cannot hope to build a better world without improving the individuals. To that end, each of us must work for his own improvement and, at the same time, share a general responsibility for all humanity, our particular duty being to aid those to whom we think we can be most useful. "

I totally agree with you and i appreciate you from my soul . The action you are going to take it's really needed and should honour each and every man in the society who have ability to help someone who are needy people . I think we should help everyone who needed us plainly speaking i want to say that not only poor but also like autism child and someone like this type we should help their . As a medical person i know this things well and i see it everyday how many people are suffering badly and how to lead their life. It's really pathetic cause lots of millionaire , billionaire are there in this society but such a lack of humanity that things badly needed their . Whatever they have it's now their cause Allah want it they will help needy people.

After seen your post such a pleasure comes to me that lastly i found somebody who are thinking about needy people's condition and trying to do something . I will try to do something for this type of people from my ability .

Thanks to you and the commenter . You did well man as usual. Seeking your response . Best wishes for you and also cordially love for you and your family. May Allah bless you . @damarth

how do you think we can become successful steemit users?

·

Don't be selfish it is a good first step.

·
·

that is for sure

This campaign on famine is very valuable and above all to create awareness of what this serious problem means and as brothers we are all we should give our contribution, both material and spiritual to be carried out not only acts of "charity", but also as a true act of LOVE.
Count on me to give my support and my solidarity

I will participate, from the many I can, cuman this time anyone cares about people who crisis to ekonimi, you have built a community that can help many people in this world, I am very thankful for anyone who has made this community, thank you as much, from you @damarth I am aware and learning, the meaning of life

@Damarth I must say i've been following you for quite sometime and I must say that your selflessness and consideration for others are out of this world.
It's a priviledge to have kind souls like yours on this platform.
That said, I am willing to participate in this brilliant initiative

·

Thank you , i hope we can make a difference all together.

I might not be hungry but i know some people around me that definitely lack priviledge of eating barely a square meal a day.
It always touches me so deeply and very recently i used some of my little steemit earnings to give Ahmad and his sibling Rasheed- from a very poor home a decent meal.
World-food-programme-with-credit_tcm244-414232_w940.jpg
I just vowed to give any earnings that comes out of this post to the people i know that can't afford a decent meal.

I’d love to participate. I can afford up to one meal a day but I know so many people that can’t and don’t have access to steemit. I know someone that can’t afford to pay her hostel accommodation bills so she sleeps in the classroom under the guise of reading alt night . Your upvote will go a long way in helping provide not just for myself but for others in need.

Local communities could help for those who don't have for food, they could provide place like libary where people can make their steemit account and be able to receive help.

It's just a thought.
Keep up a good work.

In Benin city where I school, I will like to help the kids that roam the city's ring road. There are lots of kids that can be found there by the roadside in tattered clothes, begging and holding unto strangers until they give them mere change or send them away forcefully.
It is really sad and depressing when I see this and sometimes or most times I wish I could do more for them if I had the opportunity.
One time, an NGO I am a part of took it upon ourselves to feed some of them but limited by resources and funds, the food could not go round and they ended up fighting for it. While this is a sad and depressing event, it happens so very frequently.
So I just want to say in conclusion that I would if given the opportunity use half of the sbd won to feed the kids

Thanks @damarth sir!
The one meal a day weight loss plan promotes fast weight loss through restricting the time of day during which you eat and the number of meals you eat in a day. This type of diet has different forms, such as intermittent fasting, alternate day fasting, or eating only one meal a day.

Thank you @damarth for the opportunity to help our world. So many people are really suffering in several parts of the world. The rich keep opressing the poor. No one wants to help anyone. We must do all we can to end this. I will do my best to support this initiative in helping as many steemians as possible. Thanks for this once again.

This is a great development @damarth.
But the problem is most of these people that don't have access to food would hardly have access to the internet. For a country like Nigeria where internet is one of the most expensive commodity. Only we the average and rich people have access to the internet ...
I bleive its all left to everyone of us to go out there n save at least a life in our various communities

Helping those in need is so great a happiness ... you @ amarth is one of those people who cares about people in need.

Thanks to the founder of this great community and also thanks to you @damarth for keeping the community close to your heart.

Growing up in a middle class home in Denmark with a good income, I've never known poverty or lack of material goods in any ways and can't really claim to have lived a tough life in such ways. My world shattered though when my parents went their separate ways when I was 5 because my mother had found us a new stepdad, and here almost 30 years after I'm still picking up pieces.
My stepdad was a narcissist with many psychopathic tendencies and through a combination of mental and physical fear he ruled our little family. In many years I had a hard time communicating with anyone without it being horribly awkward until I started playing World of Warcraft in 2010. The sensation of having a friendly online platform, in the shape of my guild, where I could communicate indirect with people, getting my point across without stumbling halfway through and actually feel relevant, was amazing.
I'm now a relatively normal functioning socially human being (though I'll never learn to small talk) but still very much appreciate platforms like steemit. The way steemit and similar platforms allow us to communicate freely, no matter who we are, how anonymous we'd like to be and what we have to offer is, at worst, still awesome and at the best a possible lifeline for individuals like past me.

The prospect of being able to safely store all these testimonies, legacies, stories and thoughts uttered each day here I hope will be of great value to the coming generations, both so they can learn more about us but also so they can learn from us.

@damarth, I must appreciate your efforts thus far. There's a "sponsor a meal 🥘 for a child" campaign currently being run by the inner city mission of Christ Embassy, also a back to school campaign for indigent kids in the inner cities of Africa which I'm part of. In the light of the idea 💡 of taking advantage of steemit to help reduce/alleviate poverty, it'll be nice if a dedicated steemit page is set up for this course. There can be dedicated pages per continent/per country as well. Proceeds from upvotes on these pages can then be used to help the needy. Aparently, majority of folks who need this "a meal a day" help aren't on steemit, hence, the need for the campaign to be taken to their door steps whilst Steemit is being promoted. This way their bodies are fed but their minds are not left out. Like I commented on your last post, the renewal/education of the mind is very key in poverty alleviation.

Thank a million for the opportunity to contribute. I'll keep doing within my capacity

Regards!

Great input to the community @damarth. We need more like you.
There are a lot out there who can't afford even one meal in 2 days.
There are a lot even here in Nigeria. Only wish they could access steemit.
Everyone just has to do the little they can in any way to help others and make the world better for all of us.

I have clothes, some toiletries and A Pot of Noodles!

I visit orphanage homes here in Nigeria. The kids there, so lovely. I really like that people are now working for the good of humanity. Thank you @damarth

·

How often do you visit the orphanages?

this is the only platform where we share our stories and our feelings does not matter what type of feeling we shared. in above comment of langford shared a great views about her sister achievement and i appereciate you that you select one of the best comment from your post and make it your post you are one of the best steemer which give a new conncept to other steemers to appereciate people on steemit.

Thank you @damarth for doing this.
Myself and my family have seen really hard times, but we're in a better place now.
So every year, we visit at least one orphanage and we take food, clothing, toiletries and money to them. I couldn't go last year because I was seriously sick for a couple of months, but I'm OK now, and we're already making plans to continue the tradition.
People are suffering so much in this world. I've seen bad cases around me here. I'm so glad that there are people who take it upon themselves to make the world a better place in their own little way. I just hope all intentions here are completely genuine and devoid of greed...

You have always been the top rewarder and encourager, I was nearly in tears reading that guys testament and testimony, well the world is such a small place and steemit had made it smaller.

With loads of love from people like you loads of support and many have escaped the pangs of poverty infact many homes and poor countries have enjoyed the benevolence of this platform.

As for me, been struggling hard to pay my bills in college, don't dropped out for a year, it was hard, this time it's better, I have quite enough to pay here.

You're an amazing person buddy, I don't know you too much, but your works have told me what I really should know.

I discovered steemit last October approved last November and made a decent post this month. My friend told me @jacinta.sevilla that it can be possible to achieve happiness, fullfillment and financial freedom in this community. She mostly make some artworks, deep and detailed ones. As a teacher, being paid like thrice than the minimum wage but I cant even save a penny nor spoil myself a decent double shot espresso at a local coffee shop. All of my salary goes to my debts. I got a car accident last 2016 and a major cyst operation. I spent 2017 paying my debts. I startting to ask myself if am I unlucky or just ungrateful. Everything is routinary. Safe yet boring. Nothing motivates me waking up from my bed. I wear a decent uniform but I walk without dignity. I love teaching but I fell harder on arts. Since during in childhood it was my firstlove. Parents told me to secure something on your plate rather than your emotions. People see art just a way to express. But for me art is everything and art is everywhere. One of my post earned around 70 sbd . In the place where I leave it cant even earn a dollar. Steemit made me HUMAN again. Now I am decided to persue my passion into action. I am forever grateful to steemit and its supportive community. Might quit my job and try to live more.

Steemit change my fate too!

Before starting my story, I would like to introduce myself first. I am degree student which taking Economics course at local university(Sg) currently. Before I knew Steemit, I was about to stop studying my degree and go for a work in order to pay my school fees.

Luckily, I discovered Steemit on Jun last year and start blogging. I start to earn money myself when I am studying. As time goes on, I was able to make a few thousand bucks and I changed my mind. I am not going to work anymore, because Steemit provides me an awesome platform to earn some money after school!

I am so appreciate to Steemit as it totolly changed my fate!

Oh! that's great Sir @damarth. I want to contribute into this ful of my passiOn generOsity with full upvOte, and do afforts for this kin act. I'm so glad to act this for humanity, yOu are a great persOn. I appreciate yOur post.

In this wOrld there are many needy peOple, and they are lot of in poverty and belongs to the poor families. now its up to you that whom you consider by reading their comments. I lOved your idea this shows your generOsity an love passion to those who can't feed theirselves with proper foo.

In my country, many people are looking for good food but they can't get for themselves because they dont have enough money to get rid out of it. I'm also suffering from the same condition but still I get food for a day and em happy with it.
I'm helping many times for give sOme food to poor peOple. They are come in my hOuse door. I'm feel happy to help other peOpes, because her resposbilty to help otheres!!
GOD Help those who help themselves.

GOD Blessed them needy peOple! Ameen

I agree with you all we better make a community in steemit in the form of our concern to the poor people out there.greeting with you @damarth
IMG_20151125_092054 - Copy.jpg

wow... what awonderful post @damarth ... i like your Share your thoughts! One Day a Meal post. thanks for share the post

you @damarth is incredible ..
we must pay attention to the poor.

There is an issue in light of the fact that the vast majority of the general population who don't have nourishment on the table don't have a PC either. I don't discuss western needy individuals who have auto, yet no for fuel or who first purchase marked material yet then dont have cash for nourishment.

Neighborhood people group could help for the individuals who don't have for nourishment, they could give put like libary where individuals can make their steemit account and have the capacity to get help.
It's only an idea.
Keep up a decent work.

Really a great work from the real steemians @dmarth i think its first time i see that type off post in which you select comment off any one whzz comment is best its a new way to appericiate people I follow you. @dmarth

Poverty does not only exist on thirdworld country but it exists everywhere because those that have more, want more and those that have not, don't have the knowledge and education, the opportunities or the help needed to climb out of the pit of poverty. Also, some don't have the attitutude or the motivation to try. I grew up in a very small community in the Philippines. We knew we didn't have a lot of things, we knew we couldn't have everything we wanted or needed, but until moving to Cebu at age 7, I didn't know we were poor. I thought everyone lived by the crops they grew, animals they raised and other things they worked or traded for. Some people do not believe they are poor because they have what they need to survive and feel that that is enough. Besides the rich keep getting richer and want to take it with them or give it to their kids who won't appreciate it and/or don't deserve it. And I would rather have my soul than sell it for wealth and power.
we just need to focus into our goals in life and give everything to it.. Our best, sweat, time, love and attitude. :')

sorry before @damarth actually i do not deserve to do like this ... but because i can not buy / rent the delegate i have to complain ... i see just you @damarth the only hope that i can convey a complaint because every post you I always follow, I share, I upvote although there is no effect whatsoever when I visit your post. please visit my post let me spirit. because I am very sure you @damarth always pay attention to the small ones. sorry if i'm sassy.

you @damarth is incredible. this quotation of your writing I am really touched.

Thank you for your testimony, if we want to change humanity we need to share our story to educate the richer about inequality and help the poorer to have access to knowledge, food and healthcare.

Hopefully with internet everybody have access to
knowledge, you don't need anybody to learn and be creative.

It's a great initiative for uplifting and for the betterment of the society. There are a lot of homeless and poor people around and we should help those who can not help themselves and also we must find possible ways to help them. We all know that time always change. We could be in their place someday sometime. A positive attitude and an affectionate approach will aid in making the world what we desire it to be.

·

@damarth keep up the good work. I look forward to seeing more. Thank you

I strongly agree friends if we educate the rich to help the poor who really need the help of the rich, because the rich daddy than the poor, if the rich want to help the poor maybe the poor will not be difficult anymore, oh rich people treasure help people in need, thank you, posting very good friend.

I would like to share one meal a day too with the people that are less privilege and the kids at motherless home and I will start any moment I get good job and I'll make the special one on my birthday which is 3rd of March by inviting everybody to my home and prepare special meal
I'll also invite people to steemit to meet kind people like you. Together we can stop poverty

This is so interesting! When we all talk about less priviledge, we forget to add the deaf and dumb as one. How do this people cope with the fact that they cannot communictae with everybody, just to few of us that understand sign language. Sign language is a language the deaf and dumb use in communicating with one another. I have them a lot in my church and I help in signing whatever activities going on in church. I realised these people have good phones that can browse, so I decided to introduce the steemit community to them especially to those ,young ones that are learned to also take a good advantage of the platform.

I knew how hard it was for me before I joined steemit, and now steemit is helping financially and they are much less priviledge, so joining the steemit community will help in transforming their lives financially without having to communicate with sounds. Steemit has realy helped in changing lives. For few months now, my aunt I stay with has been at home because the government of our country refused to pay them their salaries and it going to half a year, how should we have coped with food and all that if steemit was not there? How would my academics be? Would I even have transport to take lectures?

STEEMIT IS BAE!

@damarth this is really sweet of you.
I know how it is feels not to know where your next meal will come from, thankfully I don't fit in to this category, putting smiles on peoples faces is now what I do for fun, I fill fulfilled this way
I sincerely commend your efforts.
Thank you.

I'm blessed to have you @damarth

thanks for sharing this post sir '....

I for my path is passionate about giving hope to the depressed, i am looking forward to connect with you soon @damarth, sadly you will really never see my post, but i hope you visit my blog, to see for yourself, its not about the upvote, but i believe we are first humans, i wpuld appreciate your comment on tge #backtolife-project gearing to kick off soon.

Let's keep up the good work. Cheers!!!

@damarth God bless you for this initiative...together we can change the world. I will keep giving to the needy around me.

@langford read your comnt bro which make tear in my eyes when i see this type of post and comnt because you know the same situation in my country... no one care them,,, our corrupt leader just come to make money ... because i just shear 1 picture just see how the little children eat and how they fill their hungry stomach you know In country over 60% of the population live under $2 a day. Life of a poor is hard struggling everyday to find food, clothing and shelter. one day i am going to university in they young boy standing for charity..when i go there asked him the reason he said me i did eat any thing form last 2 days.. plz give me money.. that time only god seeing my feeling.. in short i remember that time when i give him 500 rupes he gave me alote of pray and hug me ..
.. but one thing@longford dont lose hope just work for your best to care your family ..and yes steem is only plate which together us to shear our thoughts to know one another ... no poor no rich just brother hood to help one another ...i appreciate the work of @damarth sir you really care about us.. and thanks sir.. i looking forward for your post because here in steem some people don't no our feeling when we post cmnt with that feeling then they flag our comnt but only you remain for hope if you go.. then we leave this plate form because we workhard but some people thing this plate form only for them..

My neighbor's daughter is 8 years old. She's dead, he's a single dad. The girl is very flexible, kind, responsive. But it will be a lifetime to undergo chemotherapy because her mother was infected with HIV infection. The girl does not know about her illness, thinking that 2 times a day takes vitamins. I was upset when I found out about her illness. But don't stop to chat. I allow to come and visit us, play with my daughter. Of course I have good hygiene and her family. We're on the street, in a cafe. I don't want her childhood ended early because of illness. After all, when she finds out about his HIV status a part of her world will collapse. She has a very caring father. who plays with her everywhere, she does not deny. He's not sick. Her mother died when she was 5 years old and my father took her in. When he took learned about the disease, as they divorced long ago. Such children should not be deprived, because they don't do nothing.

good post, I'm waiting for that day, do not forget support me yes

Quite a nice concept there. Keep up the good work. Let's use steemit to change the world.

I love dis. Truth talk. Distance BTW d rich and poor s far too long.bt am hopeful in Steemit to make a way and a difference

Living with a family has thought me lessons,I have understood that the little we have put together can go a long way I helping each our lives.my family is not by blood our birth but we are all students struggling to ensure that the situation we find ourselves does not affect our common goal in achieving educational success we have bonded through the overcoming of similar trials and tribulations and have become a single unit in which our problems are shared and our victories shared0E07B8EA-1168-4F6C-8C41-7EA630BFB5F9.jpeg

Looool. You guys are just too good.
What should we call this show.

Unfortunately corruption is rampant, the world over. I am afraid with power comes corruption. The sad thing is in Africa, where I come from - you would think that politicians would be more humble and empathetic , towards the poor and suffering people - but as soon as they come to power....corruption wins!

Steemit has become a tool for change. The lives of many will be affected through this great initiative from @damarth .. There are lots of steemians from countries like Nigeria, Phillipines and venezuela amognst others and these countries are plagued with poverty and bad leadership. Steemit has become a source of livelihood and a new community that bonds us together.. We will continue to fight the good fight. A meal a day is a good initiative and this will put smiles to the face of many.

It's so sad that most of the less priviledged out there that are hungry don't have internet and therefore can't be a part of the online steemit community but still we can reach out to them. Someone that cannot feed most likely won't be able to buy mobile phones or PCs to access the internet and most of them are illiterates too.. We hope this becomes a long term vision and in time we will be able to set up different steemit hubs in different locations for these people to come and use the internet for free and also have trainers that will educate them on how to use it .

With the right support all these things are possible. Let's start helping ourselves if the government can't help us

  ·  3년 전

This is a great agenda.. Let us all put smile on the faces of the hopeless. I just sincerely hope people will be honest and not misuse this oppurtunity so we can truly affect the lives of those that need it. Steemit is really a community that promotes love and oneness..

Thanks @damarth for your little contribution to all our lives thus far and thanks for this wonderful initiative

I just don't know why I feel so sad.. If it's the post or the corrupt government.. Thanks @damarth I have utmost confidence that this will go a long way to help a lot of people

Going full time steemian here! I really think we could be changing the world with steemit thats why i decided to go full time and give this more time so that i con do it properly.

Hope you can support our first steemit event in our city a major mass sign up attempt with TV interview this feb 13. Thank you sooo much

Great work going on. Hope God prospers this!!!

It's so touching.. Some of us struggle to eat a third time a day... Yet tears roll down when the realization that there are yet people that can't eat once a day.. . Thanks @damarth I just pray this helps

I'll just upvote your post. You are doing a useful and good work.

@damarth i am surprised that its only been 28 mins since you posted and your seen and comments are surprizing .This is because you help steemit family and all the steemians love you :) I love your way of thinking .You are true if we all contribute in that great work of helping poor this world would be a greater place. Irrespectice of caste,creed ,religion and country we all should help each other and delete that gap between rich and poor and make this world a greater place.
You know i also belonged to a poor family .We are 5 sisiters and we have no brother and in our culture its so difficult without having brother.My father was a govt servant .He didn't earn that much and we have faced a very difficult time.But my father gave us education.There are times when we have no money to pay school fee but thanks God that hard time passed.Now we all sisters are educated and now atleast we can live a better life than before :) The one who faced poverty problems only those know the feelings of poor :) You are doing a great work .I wish i would be able to help steemian community but i am newbie but i used to help a little bit which i can:)

This platform is indeed this kind of first rate opportunity! It adjustments many peoples life absolutely, by way of giving them the change to help their studies or just giving them a way to specific themself!
beautiful minds have become connected with each other and share the love, joy and happiness. The fine vibes are anywhere around. i've seen agencies of steemians together, and it's far barely feasible to peer them greater enthusiastic about some thing else than steemit! I sense this may be my blessing of 2018, our blessing.

I come from a public school where everyone is not particularly financially buoyant. I plan on using the

ONE MEAL A DAY

to assist the needy around me

If there is a way to get this 'meal a day' to children here in Nigeria it would be great... The current administration promised a meal a day during campaign... You need to see the rubbish it has become.

If only the government here would grow a heart... Or borrow from steemians out to change the world

Thank you @damarth for been selfless
Having people like you on steemit has really changed my ideas on how i see life. Its not just about myself anymore. You have really inspired me. If every human can care less about themself then the world would be a better place and her resources evenly distributed

Wow. This is really a great idea. I have always wanted to do this especially for those women whose husbands have eloped leaving them helpless; with kids to fend for and no job at hand....

Unfortunately, I sincerely don't know where to even start from.

Telling them to join steemit isn't an option either because they don't even have phones talk more of having access to the internet...

At this point, its more like my heart eats me up seeing them on the streets begging...

For these kind of people..
A meal a day would go a long way to help but then another question comes up...

For how long will they depend on the "meal-a-day"..

The perfect solution would've been the government creating jobs for these kinds. Sadly, the nation is not even health enough to stand on it's own....

But we are still hoping for the best and hoping for a change especially to the hungry children on the streets...

In the mean time..
Thank you @damarth for touching lives in the little way you can

@damrath, Absolutely steemit platform really helpful for the any persons. Its contribute wealth thought via upvotes. You gave real inspiration post. Absolutely it encouraging me. Last month I can contribute some of my wealth to desolate peoples to share meals. Its only little bit person. But I was glad coz why I help another desolate peoples to give meals for solve their famine problem. I want to continue this unfortunately I can't take photography that moment coz they didn't faced in front of camera.

I Nice to decided follow you. Great concept.

Ma'am. Indeed ur actions speak louder than ur words, i realy like ur idea of helping tne needy. At least those that cant afford a one square meal a day can afford it with ur help.
Making impact to people’s life is one of the greatest thing to do. Impact can be made in different ways, everything is not money. Words are greater than money.Your word can change someone’s life for good but money is will finish.
I really admire ur initiative on this nobel community, indeed @damarth u are at the level of welldone ma. Thanks for ur kind support to all who tirelessly drop their motivating comments here, thanks once again.

Great initiatives to help people in need @damarth. Respect you for that. But how can we know whether we are helping genuine people? There may be people writing fake comments just to make quick bucks.
We can start by spreading and empowering all the Steemians so that they can help each other and also help others. My point of view about Powering up on Steemit and how we can help ourselves and others and also help the platform grow.

thanks for your assist @damarth, as very many people want, you may help thru the net with the steemit.
I simply wish for you, do not ever orangutans folks who want you.
the sector is aware of, you are a person who is needed in steemit.
on this earth are now very an awful lot still lack of food, they do no longer recognise in which to look.
thanks for @damarth who has helped all of the human beings of steemit users.
because the net is now a superb way to talk with all international locations, together with with you

you are lucky man

Wow great job, I had never come through your post, but reading you now a great hope and expectations arise in my mind. Yes friend you are doing a great job for the humanity and kindness to the poor. I also want to do lot of for the people of my area, actually I am from India, at north eastern state Assam. I had already donated some of my earnings for the victims of floods specialy for women and children. With the help of veturn steemians such as @kafkanarchy @realpoul @exyle @Firepower I had already organised my food distribution program which I had posted on my blog in the month of August. Yes friend humanity and brotherhood are the real ornaments for a beautiful life. You are great and I offer you great thanks for the great job. God bless you for your kindness to the needy.

Helping the poor is very noble
You are a really wonderful person
Poverty in my country is very much I love to help them all u

I think it's a great idea! such actions are lacking in the world! I am pleased to take part in the support, but my voice is too small:(

nice post

i hope you up vote my post

Wow fantastic thank you upvote me.

What I love, I do not know today. I do not have any wish or not. It is astonishing that sometimes, when I wake up in the deep night, I hear the voice of the unreal, I see the mythical scene. Break the silence of the night and roar in my ears, There is no sea on the back.
If I do not have the moon in the sky and I see the full moon, I can recognize every star in the sky in the clouds. And on some other days, when a well-lit air is heard, first you can hear the name of a musical instrument, a beautiful melody, then whoever sings sweet melody more than the birds of the dawn

Do not think we're floating in the sea at night,
A melodious tune to flutter in the lake, so that
I can talk whispered with you ..........

Unbelievable friends Surely everyone is ready to participate, to help each other in this steemit, and certainly be able to contribute and influence great, and can help each other to advance the economy on this earth, and I also agree with what you say a friend, must share and support steemit progress, we are united, we can? i like steemit and i am sure to forwards its again steemit will be more advanced more than now ...

you are a great person mr @damarth and hope you will choose a better thought from all of here coments and after it, we will follow those best and try to do good for humanity
i think we should invest in small busniness and all the earning use in those missions which we will start and plan and should start a school or centre where we should give the skills all person who have no any skill still or poors
sure
We can take our responsabilities and act for a better world now.

I have always have the passion to give ONE MEAL A DAY to the needy,the poor and the less previllage, but i have not been opportuned..... I will be the world most happiest girl if am given just one chance to make them smile with real joy from the depth of their heart.

This is very thoughtful of you. We need more people like you in this world. Keep up the good work.

Every human being must have a sense of responsibility, where the sense of responsibility must be tailored to what we have done

Thanks @damarth

Eating one dinner a day can enable you to restrain your calorie consumption, regardless of whether you're checking calories or not. While weight reduction calories shift, generally going from 1,200 to 1,800 calories per day, you may experience serious difficulties eating every one of those calories in one dinner. In the event that you can get more fit on a higher number of calories, however, it could be considerably more troublesome - and not exceptionally sensible - to eat them all at one sitting.

Eating less than as far as possible - 1,200 calories for ladies and 1,800 for men - may make you shed pounds speedier, yet it puts you in danger for supplement inadequacies, particularly in the event that you take after this eating design as time goes on. Dropping weight too quick more often than not brings about loss of muscle and water, notwithstanding fat. Losing muscle may cause a reduction in vitality levels and increment your danger of recapturing the weight later. Furthermore, eating excessively couple of calories may moderate your digestion, making it harder for you to drop weight.

Steemit has put a smile on so many people's faces. I will continue to thank the person who introduced this platform to me.

As a student in Nigeria, many would agree with me that it is not easy, most especially those that came from a poor back ground..

I could remember when I had no money, no food stuff in school in my 2nd semester, 1st year, i called my people, they told me to wait but i was starving.... Then i asked a friend to help me out and he said, if only i could wait that his next pay out would be in 2days, that was like forever to me but I was patient, and after 2 days (in the evening to be precise) he lent me 3k out of the 15k he cashed out then which i used to prepare a meal... I was so grateful and he told me about how steemit was helping him but i had no option then since i didnt have a good browsing phone but thank God i do now.. Men, during that period, i felt what hunger really was.. And i must confess it wasnt a good experience.. So i really know what those who dnt even have a meal a day are going through and i would love to help in any way with the upvote u give me.
I really havebplans of helping people on the streets if i make it big on steemit.. And i pray it comes to pass.

Thanks so much for this opoortunity @damarth
May God bless your good works.

Great idea @damarth! Well, I have made a plan to help the needy people a long time ago, when I was in grade 9th (after getting a job). I still haven't job but am happy to find this platform which provides great opportunities to everyone. In Sha Allah, when am able to earn money then I will definitely going to donate money to needy people.

That's a great idea @damarth, there so many poor people in the world today.The steemit ecosystem is a great place to be in. I haven't seen a platform that brings the world together. Different people from different races have come together for the growth of this community.

Well its a great initiative... By Gods Grace we have enough to feed ourselves and feed others who don't have money for meal.. We continue giving away meals to poor people... But I guess the people who don't have money to eat don't have internet access either. In fact about 40% of population of Pakistan consists of people who don't have money for meal...

Wow that's amazing @damarth like the way you carry this great community along.....

#Mentorship

Thank you so much @damarth for helping the needy and also been an inspiration to those who have to actually do more. Over here at the university of portharcourt Nigeria a lot of student lack funds to continue their education, many of us dont even have food to eat, our lifes has improved a little since steemit started becoming popular. With a person like you around no doubt much can be achieved thanks so much and more grease on your elbow.

I believe strongly in this initiative of one meal a day. So many lack the inner strength to fulfill their dreams because of hunger. The global economic recession has made situation much worse. We now have a larger percentage of the world population living on less than $1 per day. This initiative will be a right move in the right direction.

@damarth, what an awesome initiative. Fantastic to see someone on here with power using it for good. I had a conversation recently with a girl who wants to start a flu-drive on steemit to provide basic medicine for people getting sick over winter who can't afford to pay for it. Love to see what positivity steemit can do. Well done you.

Wow.... This is a challenge and i'll love to participate in this. I am in Lagos, Nigeria and we have so many people, especially little children roaming about on the streets, some begging for food, some drinking and smoking.

You can imagine a little child of 7 years smoking. Children of nowadays really need help and its in Unity that we can help these people. Thanks for this orientation @damarth ... You are a great leader and influence.

One meal a day, is a great idea, we cant keep for that one person to change all, it starts with us...

One day, a father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country with the firm purpose of showing his son how poor people live. They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family. On their return from their trip, the father asked his son, "How was the trip?"
"It was great, Dad."

"Did you see how poor people live?" the father asked.

"Oh yeah," said the son.

"So, tell me, what did you learn from the trip?" asked the father.

The son answered, "I saw that we have one dog and they had four. We have a pool that reaches to the middle of our garden, and they have a creek that has no end. We have imported lanterns in our garden, and they have the stars at night. Our patio reaches to the front yard, and they have the whole horizon. We have a small piece of land to live on, and they have fields that go beyond our sight. We have servants who serve us, but they serve others. We buy our food, but they grow theirs. We have walls around our property to protect us; they have friends to protect them."

The boy's father was speechless.

Then his son added, "Thanks, Dad, for showing me how poor we are."

What I adore, I don't know today. I don't have any desire or not. It is astounding that occasionally, when I wake up in the profound night, I hear the voice of the stunning, I see the legendary scene. End the quiet of the night and thunder in my ears, There is no ocean on the back.

On the off chance that I don't have the moon in the sky and I see the full moon, I can perceive each star in the sky in the mists. Also, on some different days, when a sufficiently bright air is heard, first you can hear the name of a melodic instrument, a delightful song, at that point whoever sings sweet tune more than the winged creatures of the day break

Try not to believe we're coasting in the ocean around evening time,

A sweet tune to vacillate in the lake, so that

I can talk whispered with you ..........

@Damarth keep up the good work that you're doing here on steemit, we hope to have more good hearted people like you on this platform.
May the universe continue to grant you your heart desires.

Wow,incredible work people.
I'm more than willong to participate.
Sometime last week, this deaf kid came to my car, asking for food to eat. I gave him thelast donought i had and the poor kid bursted into uncontrollable tears. He kept blessing me On The Highway
Keep up the good work @damarth

that is outstanding of you @damarth. You continually have a manner of putting smile on humans's face. earlier than I came on Steemit some weeks ago i was suffering to take care of myself but now at least i'm able to afford a meal an afternoon.
given that i have come to Steemit, with the little i have I can purchase my own meal, however I ought to want to assist this poor little children round me. some of them comes to highschool with empty stomach, torn out garments, unkempt hair. If wish to help them and with my stay right here on Steemit, i'll help them in each small manner i will.

when i used to be a instructor, i exploit to frown at fellow teachers who beat kids who got here to school with out brushing their mouth. I think we as instructors ought to display small love through shopping for tooth brush and teeth paste to those children and notice if they will still come to high school with out brushing. This little act of kindness will make the world cross round. thank you ...

STEEMIT COMMUNITY TO THE WORLD
A wonderful project by @damarth.. This is a very kind and generous gesture sire... With the little we can do let us affect as many lives as we can.. We should not always worry about how long it will last, let us do our best now and let the future handle itself

i couldnt agree less with this post, thank you so much @damarth you are really doing alot to help the poor with your upvote. The poverty in where i stay is so severe that most people live on less than 2USD per day. Food is really a problem for so many people i tried to help as much as i can. But its so sad that i myself dont have enough. But having people like you gives me hope. I have invited many of my friend to join steemit so that they can generate some funds but electricity and internet has been a problem. I have resteemed this post so more people that need help can get an upvote from you .
Thanks so much again for been selfless.

Blockchain is a great place to do charity and find people who really care about others suffering. I have long been planning to give part of my earnings from crypto currency to treatment of sick children with cancer. I was inspired by the actor Konstantin Khabensky who gives all his fees from acting for the treatment of children with oncological brain diseases.
You're doing a great job, inducing people to think about those who need our help.

I am wholeheartedly willing to participate sir! Anything we can do?
Someday, if I grown here i will follow
