Making something and sending it out into the world and then people not only responding to it but adopting it for their own and making a separate thing for it, that’s beautiful. It just shows you how much you can affect other people… the butterfly effect of everything you put out into the world. – Marketa Irglova
Setting up my ‘gear’ for the workshop events was never this fun. Butterflies everywhere. And the many people willing to help was so heartwarming. And to be doing it all under a fruit bearing pomegranate tree, in my hometown, Tripoli in Lebanon, just topped any other venue I could ever pick!
Part of my big vision for Be You International is to have that humanitarian-feel-good feeling about how it operates as a business. And today I am making one of my dreams for Be You come true by running 2 workshops for free in Lebanon where I’d like to eventually open a non-profit branch.
I invited the participants to a world powered by passion… their passions… and together, all the participants, Alkindy and Global Shapers Tripoli, were able to raise enough money to send one kid to school.
Be the change you wish to see in the world.
I got these young beautiful souls to realize that the problem of humanity, the problem of our society, the problem of the world… is the problem of the individual. If we don’t clean up our own act… we can’t expect the world to get clean. It all starts with YOU and ME. I’m doing my part. Please do yours.
