Love is not patronizing and charity isn’t about pity, it is about love
So for quite some time now we have been updating the community on only the outreaches and most of the activities that @better vision has been undergoing, well that is the sole purpose of the @bettervision account and we deem it necessary to continue to do so however quite recently we were contemplating the steemians hardly knows the volunteers of @bettervision community and that we should get them out there to the community for steemians to familiarize themselves with us.
Again, we talked about how we could share our love and what we do with the community since apparently all they get to see is the benefits others are getting, atleast we have to add our quota to the blockchain and not only to the outside world because of which we have decided to also enlighten the community here about ocular first aids, pathologies and general eye care from time to time, who knows someone’s vision may just end up being saved through these educational moments.
It is our hope and enthusiasm that these additions will be met and accepted by the community and that you would continue to show us the love and care as you have been doing all this while.
Giving is not just only about making a donation but giving a helping hand and showing love
