Helping Hands


"Helping hands" refer 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.


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.


Overall, helping hands play a vital role in promoting social change and improving the lives of individuals and communities. Through their efforts, they can create a more just and equitable society where everyone has access to basic human needs and opportunities for growth and development.


My Thoughts

I am never asking for money, although it is always welcome. Helping Hands to me 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 your wallet.


Here are some ideas:

  • Volunteer at a food kitchen.

  • Take someone to lunch.

  • 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.

Let me give you an example. One day, I had purchased a rather large and heavy item. As I was struggling out of the store, a young man with tattoos everywhere and piercings of all sorts approached me. He looked like someone I would normally avoid if possible, but this great young man simply took charge and said, "Here, sir, let me do that for you." He grabbed the package, asked where I was parked, and loaded it in the car for me. I 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 us. There are hundreds of things we can do for others.
