Hi friends, it’s me Don (I’ve sneaked over here from East Dulwich Forum sshhhh),
I want to tell you about an event that is very special to me so please bear with me.
Imagine a world in which kindness was the norm and not the exception! In today’s polarised and politicised times it seems almost unthinkable. And yet, something still give me the belief it is possible!
Why? Because of the direct result of a stranger’s selflessness years ago, which I experienced when my landlord kicked me out of my place.
I couldn’t find anywhere to stay, and I couldn’t figure out how to solve it given I was working long hours in a demanding job.
Luckily, a chance phone call put me in touch with somebody who gave up his time to ring around, and view potential accommodation, finally setting me up with a place to live. I moved into a dream place, never having met that kind stranger face-to-face!
He was the first person I invited over to the new home, and when I asked him why he had helped a stranger, he said,
“It was my choice, I enjoyed it…I help you, you help me, everybody happy.”
His words became my mantra, and I discovered through becoming an agent of kindness, that I unexpectedly received such a feelgood high (the so-called Helper’s High), I also met new friends with whom I shared amazing experiences, and my karma was off the charts too.
This gave rise to the thought: what if there was a platform that brought people together to have fun, whilst doing meaningful acts of kindness for each other? And so DMAFB (Do Me A Favour Buddy) was born.
I think you’ll agree, with the way things are going in the world, it’s just common sense to look out for each other - If not us then who?
To celebrate our relaunch, DMAFB will be giving away a MacBook Pro and a FairPhone 2 to a lucky individual and friend, randomly picked from all who answer the challenge to request or offer an act of kindness, and invite their friends to try out DMAFB, before midnight 31 July 2019 (GMT).
To enter the challenge there are just 3 easy steps:
Step - 1 sign up for free at www.dmafb.me,
Step - 2 post an offer or a request for kindness (e.g. I can walk your dog/I need to borrow something/I want to donate baby clothes - anything really, your imagination is much better than mine)
Step - 3 Click Invite Friends and refer your friends and family to get extra entries.
Every friend you invite that posts a favour earns you an extra 50 entries for you towards a MacBook Pro and they will automatically receive 5 entries towards a Fairphone 2 Android phone for themselves.
The more friends that enter the better the chances are to win.
That’s it. What are you waiting for?
Apologies for the shameless plug.
