Yong Xiang>>>>>> I think that he is a passionate person who loves what he is doing for the poor. His kind heartedness helped others and I believe that only passionate people love what they are doing will put in their best effort to do it. Although he is rich, he is generous and kind hearted. His sympathy and empathy for the poor is really commendable.
Keith>>>>>> Being such a celebrity, I think that if Brad Pitt could remember the poor and give some of his fortune to them, it is really commendable. The way he gathers his volunteers and help those in need is what I salute him. I believe that if he could come out of his comfort zone and help those people in Africa, he is truly a person that could understand the need of someone to care for the poor when they are in need. He is someone that we can look up to, someone who we can learn from.
Yeong Yuan>>>>>> I felt that I am actually very fortunate to be living in Singapore, having a proper place to live, play and live. We should come out of our comfort zone and help those who are in need. Whenever organization ask for donation, we could donate some money to them, even a 10 cent means a lot to them, every cent counts, every cent makes a difference in their lives.
Hafiz>>>>>>> I felt that we are actually a bunch of fortunate people who sometimes complain of what we do not have instead of appreciating what we have. Singaporeans are always and forever complain for the smallest things on Earth, such as waiting too long for a bus when it is just a 10min wait. How about people in the Low Developing Countries? They do not even have a proper bus stop, they have to walk from one place to another, and worse of all, they have to worry for their three meals everyday. It is horrible for them, and they should not be treated in this way. Let us contribute some of the blessings that we have to them, today.
