Yesterday was the start of yet another little project which hopefully will have an ongoing effect within the park, the communities and the guests visiting the park. Due to all the support we have received from ALL of you for the Cricket team, Tsamma Land etc etc it is clear that we will not be able to pay back what we have received, although there is one way we can try and do it and that is to 'Pay it Forward', this is the recipients way of thanking you all for the selfish donations and time offered without asking anything in return and of course the FRIENDSHIP.
Yesterday the Cricket team and the kids from Tsamma Land started by picking up rubbish from the main gate all the way to Tsamma Land - and what fun it was....Back ground on the 'Pay it Forward" concept
The world can seem like an unfriendly, threatening place, yet we all want safety, health, and happiness for ourselves and our loved ones. How can one ordinary person -- you or me -- make a positive difference in this world? One way is the practice "paying it forward." While the steps might be simple, the outcome could create a sense of luck and good will that changes the world.
It should be something significant, and not for a person from whom you expect a good deed -- or anything at all, for that matter -- in return.
If the person thanks you and wants to "repay" you (that is, pay it "back"), let them know that what you'd really like is for them to pay it "forward" -- you'd like them to do something nice for three people they don't know, and ask those three people to do something nice for three more people. The idea is to consciously increase the goodness of the world.
The kids received some sweets from guests for their hard work.
