Xolani Mdluli and other unmentioned SA youth have managed to melt many hearts with an initiative that is meant to better the lives of the less fortunate. The group have shared an idea called the "FreeBread" campaign to provide bread to the poor.
The post, which was shared in popular Facebook group I'mStaying, read as follows:
"We started a #FREEBREAD compaign, not because we are rich or better than anyone but because we know there are people who have no idea where will the next meal come from, and everyone is going through tough times financial but we saw the need to share the little we have with the community ❤ we will never post pictures of beneficiaries of this compaign."
He then goes on to thank everyone who continues to take part in the #FreeBread campaign.
"May God continue to bless everyone who is supporting and contributing towards this compaign there are people who really need the bread and a simple "thank you" goes a long way." he wrote.
The heartwarming post received widespread appreciation from Facebook users who applauded the young man for taking initiative and doing his bit to improve SA. Here are some of those comments.
Denise du Randt said:
"Wow. Amazing thank you for your kindness. God bless you."
Oded Stephen Maramwidze said:
"Thanks for not showing the photos of the poor, because doing so really makes them feel humiliated. Be blessed."
Briefly.co.za also shared, a very proud mom has taken to Facebook to share with Facebook group ImStaying the special relationship between two little girls - her daughter and her bestie. The post, which features the two girls lovingly sharing special moments at different occasions, was also accompanied by an inspirational message from the mom:
"The reason I’m staying... These two remind me of a pure love that has no boundaries. They are best friends and inseparable. The lockdown had its toll on their friendship because there was no more going out or sleepovers but they have kept it tight, thank God for video calls... I walk into Zama’s room in the middle of the night and I always find Gigi next to her (on the phone screen) sleeping. They video call the whole day and night until they pass out together.
The heartwarming post was met with even more heartfelt comments from stayers who encouraged both children to continue to grow and nurture their special bond. Others also applauded the girls and their moms for not allowing racial differences to separate them.
