Audrey Hepburn once said, “As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands — one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.”
2 October 2021 was a blast for Mabopane, Pretoria.
Royal Palace sponsored a local talent by awarding the exceptional with football wear, soccer games, and many more.
As if not enough, the event was graced by the presence of the councilor (councilor of ward 12). He delivered an amazing speech and motivated our young champions to train harder.
Royal Palace is looking forward to supporting other local talents in Gauteng.
What happened to me when I tried giving back…
Last year I was in a taxi with a lady, probably in her late forties, and the taxi had to go through a garage to get fuel. When the tax came to a halt, a man came to me ( i was sitting by the window) and asked for 5 rands.
Unfortunately, I didn’t have anything to give him so I simply said, ‘Uxolo bhudi, anginayo imali njengamanje’. Then I asked the lady sitting next to me if she had any 5 Rand. She reached in her purse and took a 5 rand coin and handed me. Before I could hand the coin to the man outside, she snatched the money from me and put it back into her bag.
I asked her why and she said that the man does drugs and she knows him well. She also said that the 5 rand money was for cannabis. Without wanting to argue with her, I simply nodded as if I had understood.
But I didn’t understand. It left me with more questions than I can answer today. Here are some of the questions I have.
- What is the importance of giving?
- Who do we give to?
- What is the concept behind giving?
- How does giving affect the lives of others?
- Why is it important to be involved in your community?
