All around the world there are likely many discussions occurring about issues men and boys face because today is "International Men's Day"! Key topics (known as pillars) are:
1) Men's and boys' health (e.g., shorter life span than females)
2) Improving gender relations
3) Promoting gender equality
4) Highlighting male role models
5) Highlight discrimination against men and boys
6) Celebrate men and boys achievements and contributions (e.g., in community, family, marriage, child care)
To the men and boys in my life, love you to bits. I will listen and verbalized my appreciation more and help the boys in my life grow into strapping male role models and the men grow as old as women.
I have been fortunate to have worked along side men since I was 15years old (up until I became a RN). The best mentor in my life is a man and an engineer-my dad. Dad taught me hands on (oil and all) about various aircraft, aircraft fuselages, riveting, fibreglass repair, lock wiring, the list goes on....Dad taught me valuable lessons as a young girl working in a predominantly male environment... No matter who you are, hard work pays off. No one gives you anything, you have to earn it. Most importantly dad tells me "stick with it, you can do it"! Those few words have fuelled so many positive actions in my life. An honest truth for me is men are so much easier to work with 😄(unless your my best friend Mila), so brave (Mila too) and pretty adventurous (Mila too)! Ultimately, I am so grateful for men. I hold a special place in my heart for men who have grownup with childhood trauma, who grow and learn from their experiences and choose to better themselves by being everything except what they grew up with. It takes believing in someone, letting them hear the words. No one can hear thoughts, as rewarding as thoughts are, thoughts are not enough. Communication is key. Today, is the perfect day to communicate and listen to what the men and boys in our lives have to say about today! Over and out.

My mom caused a commotion yesterday while riding the MRT train with us. After attaining vast quantities of toys and candies from our Treat or Treat event in the office (2 large eco bags, and two other medium bags' worth. And yes, the event was called Treat or Treat 😊), my mom saw that there were a lot of kids who were carrying their empty halloween pumpkin bags. Without hesitation, she grabbed one of the large eco bags from me, and proceeded to shout "Trick or Treat!" Continuously while holding out candies to the kids. Of course, at first people hesitated,but no one can say no to my mom's genuine smile and happiness, as she was in her element. Her joy is the gift of giving. Taking her cue, I proceeded to open our other large eco bag's worth of goodies and gave them all away. Everyone who took our goodies were extremely grateful. I wasn't able to capture it as i was too busy giving everything out before we reach our stop. All the video can provide are some smiles, my mom getting more goodies from her almost empty bag, and her saying "Trick or Treat!". My mom, who is at her happiest when giving, taught everyone present in that area a lesson. That being selfless doesn't require anything else but a pure heart. That random acts of kindness can be given, at anytime, anywhere, at any circumstance. I was honored that my daughter Savie, niece Tati and nephew Craig got to witness it. I will never forget this. (Tearing up as I wrote this ❤) And when we reached home, I realized, a tradition has been formed. Next year, mom and I will most definitely invade the MRT again (it was their first time to ride that train yesterday) and fill those pumpkin baskets with goodies.
Love u Mama. You are amazing. PS. Sorry for posting this. I know that you don't have makeup on and u were sweaty. But i just want to let everyone know how proud i am of u. ❤👏👏👏 #RandomActsOfKindness#TrickOrTreat#generosity#Giving#philantrophist#Halloween#MamaRoseSaMrt#MyMamaRose#TeamRomero
The photo was taken exactly one year ago. A great friend of mine, Citra Dewi, a traveller, a pedagogist by profession, a philantrophist, a sometimes volunteer. She took a six month sabbatical leave to enable her exploring the country where she was born. She has been living in the Netherlands for more than 30 years. This was not her first time visiting Indonesia, of course. But I think, the longest
The most interesting fact about mbk Citra's travels is that she always tries to contribute in any way she could to the people of any part of indonesia that she visits. From money to participation.
P.S: the old building at the background is now a teahouse. It used to function as an apothecary, that's called Tjung Hwa. It's said that the first owner used to put eight teapots outside it's door as a public service to people who walked past the place.
All the best wishes for this man @ryusdb who is no doubt one of the most versatile actors I know. An actor who can go from being a hyper BJ Yangge, well-mannered rookie PD in The Producers, tsundere Kim Junghwan, genius cutie Je Suho, angsty Jihoon, carefree Ji-gong, gangster Choi Doo-il (those tattoos tho! 😵), to energizer Gu Jaeshik who loves dancing.
The man whom I can relate so much to because he also loves nature, posts more artsy pictures on his IG instead of selfies (oh but we do need your selfies once in a while! Lol), and even posted a #hogwarts acceptance letter when he went to London! A fluent self-taught english speaker who #inspire s me to strive and have a positive view in life. A #philantrophist who supports #Greenpeace and encourage us to do charity works. Talk about "practice what you preach", here's one great role model of it. #사랑합니다사랑하세요 it means #iloveyousharetolove
This is the man who made me cry so much. From watching Kim Junghwan in Reply88 (and cough cough lost appetite for a few days after what happened to him in the end cough cough),
made me cry again when he won best new actor for TV series in Baeksang Art Awards for that role,
cried again because during his speech he remembered to say encouraging words to fellow Reply88 cast Choi SungWoon who was fighting leukimia at the time,
then cried again earlier this year when he won ANOTHER Baeksang Award for best new actor from his acting in movie The King. Even when I saw this video for the first time I couldn't help but say "Junghwan-aaaaah" 😩 because the lyrics is just sad lol. Boooiii keep the surprises coming, just like this ability of yours to sing this well! 😁 Just look at this essay, it's all because you're so full of surprises 😂
Hardsub by me. Video cr to 1TheK

Средства предоставил управляющий партнёр инвестфонда Armor Capital Management Борис Жилин.
Полученные инвестиции стартап направит на разработку мобильного приложения и веб-платформы, а также расширение деятельности. В ближайшее время Meet For Charity планирует запустить новый тип аукциона с фиксированными ставками и выйти на международные рынки.
Сегодня в @meetforcharity выиграйте встречу с Александром Винокуровым! Собранные по итогам аукциона средства будут направлены в @handmadecharity для организации совместного творческого обеда для особенных детей при поддержке @plovcom
Активный аукцион по ссылке в профиле🔺
Глава 1. Крутой Капков сказал «Оk!» История Оксаны получила такой успех, что мой фейсбук-мессенджер разрывался от предложений друзей выставить на аукцион их самих, их друзей, подруг, коллег и т. д. Продолжив эксперимент, я поняла, что моя страничка превращается в аукцион по продаже людей. Поняла, что нужно зарегистрировать новую страницу на фейсбуке и перевести «бизнес» туда. Не долго думая, придумала название «Date For Charity», заказала простенький логотип и продолжила делать посты.
Уже после второго поста мне позвонили с Business FM, хотели получить комментарии о том, где и как можно купить свидание. Потом, как снежный ком, начали появляться новые люди, увеличилось количество лайков под постами. Потихоньку стали появляться селебрити, первой была Даша Веледеева. Встреча с ней собрала 50 000 руб. Нужно было искать новых героев.
Я открыла список друзей и набравшись смелости написала Сергею Капкову: «Сергей, добрый день! У меня безумная благотворительная идея. Я набралась смелости и решила предложить вам поучаствовать, можно? Уверена, за встречу с вами люди поборются. Вам нужно будет выпить кофе с тем, кто сделает самую крупную ставку». Крутой Капков ответил: «Оk!» Моему счастью не было предела. 79 комментариев, 35 репостов, 17 000 просмотров, и Сергей уходит с молотка за 300 000 руб. Тогда эта сумма казалась космической, а теперь ставка 1,2 млн руб. за встречу не кажется пределом человеческого милосердия. Продолжение следует ✨ @flerolga
