Hey guys, Welcome back to my blog. Last time I talked about my playlist for this summer and today we are going to be talking about a charity program that is coming up on July 28th called “OPERATION SMILE” which is a charity outreach by the “Give to Live” organisation.
Give to Live is a developing organisation that was convened by Mosaku, Simisola Lateefat
an undergraduate of microbiology at Babcock University. At less than 18 years old, she already had a passion for charity and believed in the quote,
Kindness is like a baton, when passed to you, you pass to the next person.
She constantly does charity in the littlest way possible in her immediate environment and she always wanted to have her own charity organisation. Her first outreach to Red Cross orphanage remains very clear in her memory and she sees the need to make a difference, to birth dreams and help lives.
At the age of 19, she summoned the courage to bring her imagination to reality, to give back to society. During her 200 level Christmas holiday she formed a team with some trusted friends and the Give to Live journey began. Within months, Give to live has moved from a dream to actual planning and is looking forward to execution during its first outreach; A visit to Little Saints Orphanage in Lagos.
Give to Live’s mission is:
- To mitigate the living conditions of the poor and needy.
- To help in the educational system of young kids in public schools and orphanages.
- To organise family style eating events for street urchins and needy in general.
- To fund projects pertaining to the development of community I.e free medical checkups for the old.
Give to Live needs your support in cash or kind to put a smile on the faces of the children at Little Saints Orphanage on the 28th of July. They, as a team, can only do a little, but with support from you, they would do a lot more. Please join us to help make our first outreach a success by following the instructions below:
