It's not how much time you spend, but what you actually do that makes a difference.
Life today is all about what "I" am doing today and what "I" want or plan to do tomorrow. Maybe it's time to pause for just a minute and do something to brighten somebody else's day just a little. For all you know, spreading those smiles can just get you smiling a little bigger yourself.
Every second you spend thinking of someone else, is a second well spent - and that's exactly what our team at Chennai is all about .
the season of giving
Because every smile matters!
Thanks to fantastic group at The MOB Project and Deva Kumari, and a big shout out to each of you who contributed toys for our children in Ooty.
If you have toys you'd like to donate, new or in good condition, get in touch with us at The Ashoka Tree or The MOB Project. It is after all, the season of giving. #Christmas #share
human rights day 2018
You probably don't realize it, but every person you meet has a story.
There's more behind every smile, much more than you think you know.
Don't judge and don't presume - take time to understand what keeps the world turning, what it takes to be humane, what it takes to #care.
There's no dearth of cruelty in the world today, spread some empathy instead. #HumanRightsDay2018 #StandUpforHumanRights
Take a moment to remember what the floods felt like - take a moment to revisit those affected - take a moment to consider they might still need help - take a moment to care. That's all that counts. #empathy
It's been 3-1/2 months since the floods wrecked havoc and changed everything here in Kerala. It's taken that much time for everyone to get back on their feet again, have houses & play schools plastered and repainted, and get clothes and food in every home.
However - there's still a lot of work to be done in terms of getting back to where we were before.
Thank you to everyone who contributed for the mats and registers for our anganwadis in the Vadekkekara panchayat, in North Paravur, Kerala.
There are still 450 children here without books, crayons and toys - if you have some to donate or would like to contribute so we can buy them some - do get in touch with us! #donate #helpKerala #volunteer

Let's keep those smiles going here at The Ashoka Tree with all the children we work with today and all those many more we will be working with tomorrow.
Happy Children's Day 2018!
