Giving is Greater than Recieving

December 11 2010, AFSOL (Automated Fleet Solutions) assisted “Keep the Children’s Dreams” with a fun day for the community of Mitchells Plain.

The dreams of yesterday are the hopes of today and the reality of tomorrow. Science has not yet mastered prophecy. We predict too much for the next year and yet far too little for the next ten.

When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed

For the whole day we entertained 500+ children with various activities, such as jumping castles, pony rides, games and slippery slides. We also had “COME + PLAY” who came to entertain the children throughout the day.

Later in the day we braaied chicken and sausage that we served with rolls. As treats they had doughnuts, chips, popcorn and suckers.

“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

There are many less fortunate people than us who live an indigence life, and by no choice of their own. Helping these people has become a mission of ours. Many people don’t realize how many ways there are to make someone else’s life enjoyable. Many of these ways are very simple and can take very little time and effort. The only thing a person needs is to be a caring individual of not only yourself, but others.

The love we give is the only love we keep, "Elbert Hubbard"
