Please Don't Die Without Doing This!

I just read a mail that struck me as both profound and remarkably sincere. Read below:

That your neighbor, whose children go to school with torn school uniforms that cost only N5,000, have you changed it for them?

That your friend who just flashed you because he didn't have N20 air time, have you sent N200 air time to him?

That your office colleague who didn't go for lunch today because he's broke, did you share yours with him?

Those numerous shirts in your wardrobe you've not touched for the past one year, have you given all of them out to people who'll wear them everyday, because it's the only one they've got?

That girl that sells recharge card to you everyday, do you even know her name?

Do you know your gate man may not have taken his bath with soap this morning bc he couldn't afford to buy N30 lux?

Do you know that your cleaner's child's balanced diet is flat pap, morning, afternoon, night. Have you bought her a tin of baby milk?

Let us all endeavour to reach to those around us. It doesn't have to be on a daily basis but we should never become so consumed with work or any other thing to the extent of forgetting that we have people around us"

That's all my brothers and sisters. Do you share the author's line of thought?
