What could be more fun and enjoyable for a bunch of 20-year-olds than to gather up and spend some quality time talking, singing, cracking jokes and reminiscing while munching on some yummy snacks? And imagine if all that energy is put towards a charitable cause, how contented we all would be!
“Caroling for a Cause” was an initiative of RCKDU to raise funds in order to provide essentials to the children of the inmates at the Walikada prison. Having completed the prison project successfully, Rotaractors of KDU decided on having “Caroling for a Cause” this year for the second consecutive time in order to provide essentials for orphans.
It was a piece of cake for us to gather up and run through few of the most popular carols with the talented choristers and the guitarists in the club. Dressed up in red, white and black with the “Santa hats” we were all in the Christmas spirit to go from door to door singing carols.
We simply loved it; to see the families gather in their halls to watch us sing and to witness the breathtaking interior Christmas decors in each house. They all were truly entertained, it was obvious from the way they all swayed, tapped their feet and mouthed the words along with us. Some even served yummy Christmas cake and soft drinks!
Every minute spent with the fellow Rotaractors preparing to sing and walking door to door singing carols was enjoyable. We did what we loved, it was tireless because we had fun spending time together singing and hoping to provide the ones in need with essentials in the coming New Year.
Coming home that night past mid night, it got me thinking… “This is exactly why I love Rotaract, it brings all of us together to put a smile on the faces that need to feel delighted in a season like this.”
We all felt much contented in ending 2016 with a blast, putting all our youthful enthusiasm for a charitable cause. The moments we spend together are never dull, each one of us definitely knows how to stay happy and make others happy and that makes being a Rotaractor worthwhile. 🙂
