Before I started Habitat for Humanity Singapore as a volunteer-Chairman (and later the National Director), I have been working for about 10 years as an electronic engineer, and another about 10 years as a serial-entrepreneur. I have been blessed in that I have worked mainly with really kind and wonderful people. While I did meet my share of nasty people (plus a couple of outright crooks), I must say that my recollection of those years have been overwhelmingly positive.
But working for Habitat for Humanity Singapore brings this experience to another level altogether, in terms of meeting kind and wonderful people. Everywhere I go, I get to meet people who are genuinely interested in making a positive change to the world. And every project we launch, we have people coming alongside us, wanting to join us in our audacious goal of making this a world where every person has a decent place to live in. These people bring together their energy, creativity and passion, and the sheer variety of expressions of love never fails to impress me.
For our Bare Your Sole 2014 walk, we have two wonderful videos by the ever popular Mr Brown and the Tree Potatoes, helping us to promote this wonderful event. Here they are:
So why don't you heed the call by these wonderful people, and register at www.bareyoursole.org.sg or clicking at the poster below for more information:
I hope to see you on July 12th 2014 at Bare Your Sole 2014! Let's walk with no shoes to remember those with no homes!
Love, Joy Peace.
