Helping Hands

"Helping hands" refers to individuals or organizations that offer assistance to people in need. The phrase is often used to describe volunteers, philanthropists, or non-profit organizations that provide resources and services to communities, individuals, and families facing challenging circumstances. In this case they are maybe talking about YOU

Helping hands can make a significant impact on people's lives, especially those who are struggling financially, socially, or emotionally. For instance, organizations such as UNICEF, Red Cross, and Save the Children provide relief and aid to those affected by natural disasters, war, or poverty. They provide food, shelter, and medical care to those in need, and they also work towards improving access to education and clean water. Individuals can also offer their assistance in various ways. They can volunteer their time and skills to charitable organizations, mentor youth, or help the elderly. Even small acts of kindness, such as donating clothes or food, can make a big difference in someone's life. Moreover, helping hands not only benefit those receiving the aid but also provide a sense of purpose and fulfillment to those providing the assistance. Volunteering or donating to a cause can improve one's. mental health, provide a sense of connection to the community, and enhance one's perspective on life.

The role of helping hands is crucial in addressing societal issues, such as poverty, homelessness, and hunger. They can provide practical and emotional support to those who require it, including the elderly, disabled, refugees, and those who have been affected by natural disasters.


Helping hands simply means doing what you can, when you can, to help someone in need. Do whatever you can to help others. Use your imagination, not necessarily your wallet. Here are some ideas:

  • Volunteer at a food kitchen.

  • Take someone to lunch.

  • Take dinner over to someone you know or don’t know.

  • Offer a single parent babysitting for a day or a few hours even to give them a break.

  • Open doors for others.

  • Check on someone you like regularly.

  • Check on someone you don’t like regularly.

  • Always be kind and thoughtful.

  • Smile at a stranger.

  • Talk to a stranger.

Ladies should be ladies, so when you see one dressed like a lady in a store, try going go up to her and say, 'Thank you for dressing like a woman. If she is with a man, ask his permission to speak to her first. It is fun to see the smiles from the women and the pride in the men. You will all end up feeling great.

Let me give you another example: One day a friend purchased a rather large and heavy item. As he was struggling out of the store, someone most of us would normally avoid, if possible, a young man with tattoos everywhere and piercings of all sorts, but this great young man came over, simply took charge, and said, "Here sir, let me do that for you." He grabbed that package, asked where his car was parked, and loaded it in the car for him. He told me he learned that day that the saying "you can’t tell a book by its cover" is really true.

Share your thoughts, ideas, and experiences with all of us. There are hundreds of things we can do for others or that someone did for you.
