An evening with the orphan children at Breakout
“Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do,” John Wooden has rightly said these words that if you cannot make someone’s whole life better, try making their few moments better but never stop trying. One can never go wrong about the idea of starting a sweltering day with a beautiful sight of two hundred happy faces roaming around.
Yes, once again, Breakout has surprised us with an extremely kind gesture by sharing their happiness with the kids that probably deserve the most. Just like kids in our homes, every child demands constant attention no matter what place he or she belongs to. In order to set a beautiful example and to fill up colors in a few beautiful lives, a few years back, Breakout came up with a wonderful idea of taking kids of SOS Children’s Villages out for a whole day to get them clothes and a meal of their own choice.
Isn’t it a beautiful idea to share happiness with the ones who cannot do it in their own capacity? The point of highlighting this event is to appreciate this effort and to make it a paradigm for others to do the same. There were two hundred kids that were taken from SOS, Faisalabad, to this largest outlet of Breakout in the city. One could feel the happiness on their faces during the visit.
The variety of clothes perplexed all the kids about which one would be the best pick. After exiting the outlet, the kids headed to the nearest McDonald’s. Well, who doesn’t love food? Since food is happiness, one could sense the excitement and positivity around. Every child had their own favorite item. That’s how their day ended.
Now you might think, “How can a meal and a dress change the lives of these kids?” Right, it would not. But, it will give them the confidence of being as important as any one of us, make them feel inclusive and give them a sense of acceptance from society by providing them the opportunity to enjoy these activities that other children do.
Breakout has not only started a trend of being courteous and kind to the society, it has also given a lesson that each of us is important and has a right to enjoy equally. I hope other brands too can help keep the tradition intact.
