So It Has Happened

Hey everyone, happy monday. How was the weekend? Mine was dynamic. ..the www.pynk360.com back to school drive for 100 primary school kids from Obalende, Falomo and Dodan barracks on Sunday turned out ok.  I somehow managed to make it 115 kids – water bottles, back packs, pencils and erasers. They were also to get a lunch and juice with water.

The event was slated to start at 4pm, by 2pm we had 200 kids…the place was barely set up. Well all in all I am grateful to God and the folks over at the Eti Osa Youth Development Initiative  (EYDI), who made a lot of contributions in terms of logistics, prizes and some of the food for parents.

Registering the 1st 115 kids

For me I feel like I didn’t do what I had set out to do, which was send every kid home with a bagpack, water bottle and lunch. Some kids went home without anything. The biggest challenge wasnt the kids though, it was the parents..the drive was for primary school students…you had people with 3 year olds fussing to collect book bags. Nigerians why? While I feel i fell short, its almost like no matter what you do Nigerians are never happy. Parents were in the line fighting,  lying about how old their kids were etc. It’s  a put off if you are doing charity for the gratitude, because they will make you wonder why you are doing it.

Anyways it was my first proper drive, i hope to be better organised next year when its time for back to school and I pray God can purpose it in my heart and finances to do 1000 kids. I didn’t solicit any help for this one,  and I can only say God has been faithful…everything fell into place and I am grateful.

I implore you to purpose in your heart to do something for someone who cannot offer you anything in return this week. Make someone smile by an act or gift of kindness. 

A picture below is myself and two special boys…they were swagged out and I couldn’t help but appreciate the dripping swag….and on thatt note I am saying I sent off 115 kids with backpack  and water bottles for school in September. 🙏That is possibly my greatest achievement thus far this year. I will do a proper post with professional pictures when I get them.

  3. Despite the complaints, I’m sure you know you did great. There’s no pleasing anyone. Those children are already blessing you from their heart. God bless you indeed. I love the swag picture, it was you that was dulling their shine as the only one without bling(s). 😉
