I was tagged by Mr Miyagi to do the #DaretoCare Challenge recently. Now, I don’t usually do these tagging things but Miyagi explained that #DaretoCare is about getting people to perform random acts of kindness, or simple acts of care, or spearheading ground-up movements for volunteering.
Essentially, the movement seeks to get us all to pay attention to the needs of those around us.
It does not have to be big and grand gestures (though those are good too). Just asking if someone is ok, or finding out what they need, and acting on it if possible, is a good start.
This reminds me of my mom. My mother has a habit of giving useful things like clothes to foreign workers near our home and to the poor, when we travel (she carries a huge suitcase of stuff to give away very often). She is a big old softie at heart, even though she can be very fierce to us.
So, inspired by my mother and the message, I did the #DaretoCare Challenge too, and this is my video.
You can do the same. Just create a post on your social media platforms, it can be a text post, image post, or a video post, on how you showed kindness or care, or spotted someone who did it, and tag three friends to do the same thing. Use the hashtags #DaretoCare and #SGcares in your posts.
I hereby challenge and tag Leslie Tay of ieatishootipost, Nadia a.k.a. @nadnut, and Dennis of Superadrianme, to #DaretoCare! And let’s see this movement snowball!
