[Announcement] Doing our Part July : Talk to us

Hi Mi Fans

We decided, after your brilliant response to last month's Doing our Part, to make it a recurring feature. So each month, we will pick a cause, a campaign, or a subject that needs highlighting, and will ask you your thoughts about it. And of course, we would not ask that without a reward, in this case a medal that will be part of a series (and who knows, maybe make a Super Medal at the end of it, for the people who contributed to every thread)




Anyway, this month, the Samaritans are running their 'Talk to Us' campaign, where every July, they hold local events to raise awareness that they are there to listen to anyone struggling to cope, at any time of the night or day. And that really made me think.
I know how precious this Community and their members have been to me this past two years, and especially during Lockdown. Without the friends I've made through it, and the daily chat we have (and it doesn't have to be deep and complex things, just talking about day to day stuff, connecting really), I'd have been in a seriously bad place.

We may not know one another in the flesh, or even live in the same country, but if you ever need to talk, my inbox (and I know that the other Mods here feel exactly the same) is always open. But if you need to unburden yourself, to someone you have no link to, I can recommend the Samaritans, they're good people, trained in listening, and will never judge you or pressure you to do anything. In this LINK, you will find their contact details. Trust me, it DOES help, sometimes all it takes is to have an ear to lay out your issues, not only it will lower the pressure of the situation, but as well, talking might help you see solutions you wouldn't have found just on your own. And it will allow you to realise that there is no shame attached to needing help, it's actually healthy to say so.



So here it is, Fans, to get this month's medal, can you tell us (no personal details, of course) when reaching out helped you? Or maybe, if you were on the other side and you helped someone who just needed to talk, how did it go?

Really looking forward to starting a dialogue with you on this most pressing of issues :D

I want to tell a story from my childhood.
I was very excited that day because the next day was Eid al-Fitr. I used to love Ramadan Feast. Excitedly, I went to the feast shopping with my father. I saw the neighbor's child on the road, but he was wearing ragged clothes.
I was very upset. We got an extra one when we bought the feast clothes. When we got home, my father turned to me and asked, "Why did you buy two clothes?"
I told all that happened. My father got emotional when he heard about this. My thoughtfulness made him very happy.
With the permission of my father, I went to give the clothes to the neighbor next door. The neighbor's son was very happy. His family thanked me very much. On the way home, I felt a great sense of peace.
My father said that helping each other is very beautiful and valuable and that Allah loves those who help each other very much. I told my father what happened. My father said, "Well done, my beautiful son."
That day, I went to bed with peace inside of me. The next day was feast. I put on the my new clothes and went out with my father. I saw the neighbor's son outside. I forgot to ask his name yesterday. I asked him his name. His name was Murat. We became friends after that day. Murat thanked me again for the clothes. Now I have decided to help those who needs help and to continue helping in all areas of my life.

This is not always easy to give the hand to people you dont' know very well to help them, you never know on who you are going to fall on. I try to help people on the French Mi Community.

I was very upset that a Syrian refugee left a few products in the cash register while he was shopping at the market because he could not afford it.  Praise be to Allah, I paid the price of the products that the woman bought and I was very happy;  In our tradition, regardless of religion, language or race, this is done only for the sake of Allah, thank you very much for this awareness.

AND we are seeing the same thing. Folk, I love your UNIQUE contributions. But people who think copypasting to get a medal are NOT getting the point of these threads. It's really offensive, and I've already deleted one post, from someone who had done it (and been warned, and said he wouldn't) from a previous post. He is now barred from the UK community. Seriously folk, WHY?

As an educator, I am dedicated to my students. I won't tell you what I did, but there were times when I gave the last money in my pocket for my students who were in bad financial situation. Seeing them happy makes me happy more than anything.

In the past, when I was little, my father bought a bicycle. While I was driving, I bumped into a girl. She was crying and I was scared too. My father bought her ice cream and so we made up.
