    Yesterday night I volunteer to distribute the food and blankets to homeless at Berkeley city between 7 PM to 10 PM. It feels good inside to give unconditionally.
    Today I picked up 3 bags of trash at the beach (Emeryville marina), because I love my city and I need to give back something to it other than tax :)
    This summer vacation I had the privilege of participating in a two week service visit in a series of villages in rural India near the town of Sidhbari, Himachal Pradesh. It was an exciting and eye-opening opportunity in rural India.
    Last Monday 30 less-privileged kids visited our office, and we got the chance to engage them in games and teach them financial literacy. I feel great and motivated being part of this activity.

    Inspirational quotes, messages are valid.
    Whatever good we give out completes the circle and comes back to us.
