You'll smile, guaranteed‏! :)

Hello readers! I'm so glad that the weekend is here , time to relax a bit, time to put a sweetest smile on your face. You know, one thing I like to do is make people smile because the best way to make yourself smile is if you make someone else smile, so I thought I would like to share an email that I've received from World Food Program few days back that probably will put a smile on your face. Here it goes:

"Twenty years ago, I was just like these kids -- surrounded by poverty. I grew up in an industrial town in Lesotho. I slept on a mattress in the kitchen. Many of my schoolmates’ families couldn’t afford to put food on the table.

But we all had big dreams (I wanted to be a doctor).

So when WFP trucks would arrive at school with food for our daily meals, we’d shout and we’d dance! Those meals not only filled our bellies, they filled us with happiness and hope.

I wish we could give every hungry child a daily school meal. Meet some of the children we’re reaching -- they’ll put a smile on your face, guaranteed!

My big dream came true. Though I’m not a doctor, I work at WFP, helping children in Lesotho get the nutrition they need to grow healthy and contribute to their community.

It’s a job that’s very close to my heart.

It’s a job I couldn’t do without the support of folks like you. So thank you -- it means a lot to me"
