Tweeting for a Cause!


Tweeting for Charity
I got the opportunity I had always wanted and this was to volunteer for such an event like tweet for charity
It started when I had to help out the Lagos team with some legwork. knowing that the Orphanage was a 5mins walk from where I live.
This is an orphanage I had earlier been opportune to visit and make donations.

My heart always goes out to giving, charity and helping people in general .
I once wrote a poem about some orphans I had once met and that is the best i have written so far (I think). It still pains me that it was misplaced .I had teary eyes when I was writing it I hope I find the poem someday cos its hard rewriting it.


So the event went well with majorly tweeters coming together to make a difference in the lives of these kids ages between 0 and 7.
I used to think all kids in orphanages could be adopted but this thought was dispelled we were told that some are for adoption while some are for fostering. The kids were lovely, the smiles on their faces, their response, they actually felt loved, triplets, the very cute baby...
I always tell myself and the people I come in contact with that we are not better off. Its just a privilege that we enjoy

These kids never knew what it felt like to be in the hand of a mother, to enjoy the cuddle of a father, suck from the breast of a mother....
In all it was a wonderful experience to give to those who are in need.

Also had the opportunity to see some of my followers on twitter for the first time and I came to the conclusion that people don't really look like their tweets (pun intended) but really they don't. your tweets don't define you. You define your tweets.

LOL - I wish I'm in Nigeria, I would have surfaced too. I love stuffs like this.

Deolu, may you find that poem in Jesus' name. Ever since I lost my manuscript of a book I once wrote, I knew how it feels to lose once's writing. It's never the same rewriting.

Will be in Naija soon o. Let me know the next of such events, maybe I can attend - very keen! God bless your heart :)

I think it's wonderful that you participated in such an initiative, and it's my hope that one day I will be able to take part in such a thing, or at leas help organize something.

It's great to have a heart for volunteering and helping others.
