People are always moaning about Facebook. It always makes me want to have a go or say my peace, but I don’t.
Tonight showed the power of Facebook.
For me reading families, friends or people’s statuses over the last few weeks has restored my faith in human nature. I am a daily face booker and I am glad to say that I am. I love to read what is going on for people. How they feel, knowing they are happy or sad. having a family day out or a holiday. Which does make me feel just a tincey bit jealous, not really. Ok now I sound like a stalker.
18 months ago I started Piaroo’s Wish Helping the Homeless and Vulnerable in Reading. I was amazed at the response in help from the people of Reading. Ove the months are numbers have grown to over 1700 members WOW.
It shocks me to think that 1700 people in Reading help the homeless and Vulnerable.
The Way Ministry help the homeless and vulnerable in Reading. The Ark Project help the homeless of Reading. The Churches of Reading help the homeless and vulnerable and needy. As well as other organisations such as Readifood, Launchpad, St Mungos, CIRDIC, Bridge and so many other schemes running all over Reading.
BUT WHERE IS THE GOVERNMENT IN ALL OF THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!???????????????????
Good question and the answer from me is, I do not know.
What I do know is, that, since its conception we have helped untold homeless people in Reading with their needs as well as the vulnerable We have provided and still provide daily help to those who are ready.
That’s what Facebook is about. Coming together as one. Tonight’s ONE LOVE MANCHESTER concert was amazing. The statuses on Facebook for me have been soothing and calming and to know I was not alone in watching the concert at home. People from all different backgrounds, ages, sexes, religions, towns and cities together watching and supporting Manchester as well as London. Our love and support going out to the victims of these senseless attacks.
I wonder what I would do with Facebook and I Know that Piaroo’s Wish Helping the Homeless and Vulnerable in Reading would not be as good as it is. I know that I would still be helping people but not as much as we actually do.
