Yu Chen was touched to see her friend, Alok giving ang baos to strangers who are old, doesn’t have a family or are working on Chinese New Year.
According to Yu Chen, Alok, the 29-year-old restaurant manager from India has been donating a small amount of money to the heart foundations and other charity organisations.
Alok gives ang bao to people who are unlucky to spend time with there family, to those who are still working, the homeless, the elderly and people who have no one to celebrate Chinese New Year with.
According to what Alok said to me, ‘I am not rich but I think if we share a little from what we get , we might bring the joy and love for people who need the most or to those who have lost their love ones. I really feel bad for them but together we can bring smile.'”
If all of us helped each other and slowly brought the spirit of giving back to society, we can make the world a better place.
I was surprised to see this kind of behavior still happening, it’s warm but rare, especially from a foreigner to stranger in Chinese New Year for no reason!
