Who doesn’t like kids? Everyone does, but somewhere I feel that it should be beyond just liking … we should all do something to uplift a marginalized child’s life.

Many of us are quite blessed to be born in decent middle-class families and better, where we have grown up with assets to every possible basic requirement and more, where we are able to cherish our childhood. But not so many are that lucky, it’s time we come forward and help those get their childhood, which every child deserves.

We can’t choose where we are born, but we can choose to use our privilege to bring a smile on a child’s face. By doing something that’s right. By doing something that’s needed. By doing something that works. Give it a try once and then decide. The experience will be a real eye-opener and an educational one.

There is nothing more humbling than knowing you have made a palpable difference in the life of a child. And there’s something inexplicably satisfying in witnessing a child respond to your gesture of love with unadulterated amazement and happiness. And capturing them enjoying life, no matter what their background—well, there’s nothing better, knowing you played a part in that.

It’s often these moments that are the most fulfilling and that’s worth far more than money or any earthly possession.
