People always want to offer help! It gives them immense pleasure and satisfaction when they help others, then what is stopping is from helping out? This question has been on my mind for quite some time now.. I was thinking of various reasons.. But could not conclude on anything! But few of them are listed below
- Time - It is a very big differentiating factor, there is this inertia to just find the right time to do something. And often we are busy with our own work trying to help ourselves ;-) And we keep waiting for that “time” to come
- Money - Money according to me is the last thing that we can offer people. Anyone can offer money, It is always about going that extra mile to do something which is much more valuable than money.
- Don’t know where to start - Most of us need someone to take the lead, and we are happy to follow.
So at MUDIYUM we are thinking about a few things..
I tried a few things personally that worked really well, i am very passionate about photography(I am not a pro, but i try to learn and read few things here and there to do better). I always pestered my near and dear ones to pose for me. So i thought why not i offer this - I was ready to click Portraits for people to post it on their facebook ;-) and in return of that favor, people would donate to a charity of my choice. This worked really well! What i continued to observe was, each one of us have some hobby or the other, like singing, cooking, photography etc etc, and if we offer to help someone who wants these services, and in return they can donate! So the one who offers help and the one who receives it, both are happy that they did something for the community!
Let’s see how we could use technology to create a platform that would make it easy for people to offer and receive help!
Mudiyuma? - Ofcourse Yes! mudiyum! mudiyum! mudiyum!
