A love/hate relationship here!

I love my nature pictures and hate my charity pictures!

Is this normal you may ask?
Who wants to be normal, as my nature pictures show you the beauty of nature and the charity pictures show you the ugliness of mankind towards its own.

Why do we have to ask desperately poor people for permission to take photos? What does it do to their dignity?

I mean, we have a website and a Facebook page so that anyone can go and see what we do, but although we have a lot of followers and great references, we still have to show people what we do.
The norm is to get your brand out there and the motivation is that if nobody knows you they cannot support you.

But it doesn't quite work like that in my experience. You spend days creating information materials, publishing them and nothing. Grant applications deliver nothing and a myriad other attempts to gather support all fail. Well, not all, as there is a trickle of support from a very few.
And so you decide to go it alone!

Scenes like this tear at me and it is as if I give away my personal treasures when I publish them in a post.
The beauty of nature belongs to all and is easy to share, but the hurt in life is not that easy to share.

Did I tell you that it started to snow here. Yes, things are wet an cold!

That is not some fancy swimming pool, it is the end of the road dammed by rain water, as the drainage is bad!

This is why 1% of this blog site is charity posts and the other 99% is all shots about the beauty of nature. No child deserves to go through this!

The last little one at the back looking to see if there would be enough also for her!

Now for some beauty to remove the bitter taste of poor and suffering people!

Do yourself a favor and visit this Source beautiful cherry farm called Klondyke in our area, to see the beauty of winter snow!
also listen to the great song in the Video!

Finally, I have shown you some of the @papilloncharity action in this post and the good news is that the feeding has now also started in another new area. A hungry person can value one slice of bread like we value a whole Pizza and so we will continue doing what we do.

More great news! We are giving away 50% of a draw to three lucky winners every week!

Note: The charity pictures are my own and the other pictures were duly cited!

We thank you for visiting a post by @papilloncharity

I think if you are genuinely trying to raise awareness and help, not just bragging about the good you are doing (rich people hugging poor people photos), it's fine. You are offering hope and actually helping them without being focused on elevating your own social credit or reputation. This looks like altruism and not just sympathy.

Thank you Sir and you read my mind. I fear showboating as according to me it is everyone's duty to help others. We don't do it because we must, or to gain fame, but we rather volunteer because we care!
There is no self glorifying in our line of work and only real special people that put their hand up to help us.
More evidence of this is the fact that we also like to give back and that's why the @combination account was launched!

Thank you, I use the tag in all of my posts.
I used to be in the discord, but withdrew after a mod told me that neoxian only wanted art posts. Not nature posts!

It is people like yourselves who give others hope, my heart goes out to all of them! I can't help but think of those little ones without shoes in that bitter cold! And others have way too many pairs of shoes sitting in their cupboards! There's so much suffering in the world right now but thank goodness for organisations like yourselves who try to help the poorest of the poor and show them respect unlike the rest of the world!
Thank you Mr Papillon!

It is an unequal world that we live in Lady Lizelle and we only do what we can to help. We are all living beings, but due to our differences not everyone has the same outlook on life.
Life is sacred and we treat it as such.
Thank you for the kind words!

Your cherry photo is perfection.

But..... there is also beauty in your charity photos, the part that shows the angels who care enough to help.

Thank you, as I said, I don't often post our work in social media, as we have a website, but every now and then I get a bit emotional and then I lay my heart out here on paper. Or is it electronic pages, or whatever :)

Hi Britt, a long time indeed my dear friend.
I have just decided to take a long break from all things community wise.
Tired of setbacks and arguments and all the rest of it.

We shall most certainly blog together again.
Please know that we also only wish the very best for you and thank you for the kind visit!

The beauty of nature belongs to all and is easy to share, but the hurt in life is not that easy to share.

It's heartbreaking thanks for sharing. I just thank God for charities that can help these desperate people.
Although it's very sad these children will value what they have later in life more than those that grew up easily.
My husband's ex-wife received R160 from a friend to buy food. She bought milk, bread and bullybeef and my stepson said to her: Is that what we now have to live from?
No gratitude for another meal.
So he will also learn now the hard way.
