This story begins with a little girl who is seven years old. Mariah lived a comfortable life growing up with her brother and with parents who worked hard to give them this kind of life. They always had food on the table, clothes to wear, decent education and a house to live in. they celebrated events with gifts and nice food.
Going home from shopping, Mariah was astonished to see a poor man wearing filthy rags on the street. Mariah was not able to contain her pity when she was sadness in the poor mans eyes that she asked her mom to buy food for him. Indeed, the man has not eaten for days and he hungrily dug into the slices of pizza that they bought for him.
Something began to change in Mariahs heart through that incident. She grew up bringing the passion of helping the poor in her heart. This led her to ask her parents to volunteer with her to work at a soup kitchen. In time, the family of Mariah began joining other programs that help the less fortunate people in their community.
Since at that time Mariah was using her parents money to give away to the poor, her parents decided to tell her that true giving comes from giving what you have and not what somebody else has. Yes, Mariah understood what her parents wanted her to realize so as early as 16 years old she took a job waiting tables at a restaurant.
Her earnings were divided half to the poor and half to her savings. She continues her volunteer work and buys toys to give away to children on Christmas day.
One of her teachers gave Mariah a very wonderful idea of writing a blog about the volunteer work that she was doing so that other would be encouraged to follow her example. Not knowing how to make a blog, she simply relied on the little knowledge that she knew to start her own blog. It was tough for her promoting her blog since she felt herself a novice in these things.
