BLOG ABOUT CAPTAIN TOM MOORE AND MY CHALLENGE I WOULD LIKE TO COMPLETE AFTER BEING INSPIRED BY HIM
Easy to do good jobs
“Kindness is what the deaf can hear and the blind can see.” The quote from the American writer Mark Twain proves that kindness is necessary for people. People in these days think that no one does good jobs, but that is not true. From personal experience, I can say that there are a lot of people around us and doing good jobs. There are also various offers of good deeds. After all, good actions exist in a lot of movies or book stories. So people are still doing good deeds, just need to recognise them. One is English Captain Tom Moore. Captain Tom Moore was born in Keighley town West Yorkshire. And he was a captain in the British Army during World War Two, serving in India and Burma. At the moment he lives in Bedfordshire. His challenge of walking 100 laps around his 25-metre garden ended on Thursday 16 April morning and he wished his supporters and everyone in the country feel healthy and well through the lockdown.
Captain Tom Moore had originally wanted to raise £1,000 for NHS Charities to say thank you for the staff who had helped his recovery from cancer and a broken hip. But hundreds of thousands of people from all over the world have contributed to his fund so far and the total keeps on rising!
The war veteran was supposed to celebrate his 100th birthday with a party of 100 people, but this had to be cancelled because of the Covid-19 outbreak. Instead, he’s spent his time slowly completing 100 laps around his 25-metre garden.
Captain Tom Moore’s extraordinary fundraising efforts have come to an end raising nearly £33m for the NHS. His donation page closed at midnight on Thursday at the end of his birthday, totalling £32,794,701 from more than 1.5m supporters.
A message on the page said he was now “putting his feet up”.
I just want to wish him lots of health and more happy birthday’s ❤️
What I can do at the moment to help others?
The most important thing for everyone is family. They develop our values. Helping and doing for others a good job without any reward is very important and honorable. Of course, not everyone understands this. Once Lithuanian Catholic Church Cardinal Audrys Juozas Backis has said, “If you think only of yourself, you’ll never be happy.”
So, what good job I can do for other people?
I want to post an add on my mom’s Facebook account, because I don’t already have my Facebook account yet, and ask every family in Huntingdon to donate an oak tree or another tree. Then we would make group of strong and helpful people and plant a beautiful oak grove. We would plant other trees in the parks, retirement houses, nurseries and schools. Green nature is our health and oxygen. Old people, children could enjoy new trees and in the new park families could have a great time. There would be another park in our city, and people I think would be very pleased. One tree for the family – it is quite inexpensive, and for the inhabitants of the city a new park is a great pleasure. Trees are the life of the world.
So, good works can be big and small, but this does not mean that the big works are more significant. So, that’s why it’s worth doing noble work. After all, “goodness costs nothing – buys everything.”
I just want to wish for everyone good health and happiness. And please don’t forget to be nice and do good jobs not just for yourself, but for others too.
Best of luck ❤️❤️❤️
