Do you have a facebook account ? Have you come across at Fb, some posts of other people who posted pictures that makes people near their places help the person in the picture? This actually happened at Facebook. Two young students from two separate places who were pictured, one was studying under a street lamp while the other one is studying by the roadside while helping sell some vegetables after school hours were surprised , when after some succeeding days some people came to their houses with groceries , books and lamps . Others came with money for their needs. All , because their touching and candid pictures were posted at Facebook. These are the kind of posts that I like seeing at Facebook actually . If only I am from their place, I would also give them some money to help them in their needs. Have you seen nice posts like these?

Yes, noon breaks are always busy for me - napping and watching my missed teleserye. As to you, I think you have been busy with your projects again. Were you?

@SIMPLYD Only two weeks ago a woman has been arrested in the United States after she collected money using Facebook for two years. She pretended she had cancer and needed money for the cancer therapy. She posted photo of herself sick, well, she was perfectly healthy and used the money for vacations, clothes, shoes and so on.

@LadyDuck Oh my! That's why I don't like helping by depositing the money to this account and that. I would like to help if I see it for real and I can go and give it directly or give in the form of medicines.

Yes, and I think one was featured in McDonald's, the one who's studying outside a McDo branch. I think he was given a sholarship.

@SIMPLYD there is one that i saw last night while i was already in bed... there were the 'carrot man', the 'Badjao girl, but the picture showed an old woman carrying a big pile of firewood in her back, and the caption somewhat stated, "won't we give likes and shares for Mama?" or something like that. that post is so heartening and it made me misty last night. the sacrifices of a mother.

@ridingbet Really, there is one like that. Had I seen it, I would cry because that is a very disheartening thing to do by an old woman. She's supposed to be resting at that time. Oh, I get misty eyed now, typing my comment.

That is correct, post that can help people and not that can destroy or hurt them. Some people post negative things rather than uplifting words

@ilocosboy I skip those and don't even like them. I want them (my friends who post those kind of posts) to know that I don't like them. I especially dislike one friend who would always post a selfie of her face everyday and every time she posts her status.

To me, Charity begins at home. There are more needy people around me. I don't trust Facebook for that, and personally, don't see that on Facebook.

Indeed , charity begins at home. That's why also before I give help I also would see if anyone within the family needs help. I deal with that first , then , I still have some money and time for those needing help, I give. I think it's not that way there in the US. Here, it's popular, that's why some people are defrauded because scrupulous persons do it at FB to swindle people.

@Sylowi5_hh But in these two cases where they are in the opposite part of the Philippines, help can just be given by those near them , to see the authenticity of the post . Besides, it's not advisable to deposit money when an account is given where donations should be given. It could just be a scam.

@SIMPLYD They are siblings who were quarreling in a video for all the world to see. Apparently the girl wanted to upload a song for their father who never came back home after work. I heard that because of their instant fame, many people buy 'kakanin' and 'balut' from them.

Yes, that is true . So we should really be discerning. Others would post other people's destitute pictures and ask for help for them. Then they would give an account where the financial help can be deposited. That's when you should never believe it.

It is good to help those who are really trying to make something of themselves and I agree a little help goes a long way. It is those that are too idle to get off their rears and try to change themselves. Some people expect things to be thrown at them with no effort on their part.

Let us say, it can only be in the Philippines. he he he Though, amidst these true pictures of people needing help, some posts fake ones who in reality the help would go to these scrupulous persons posting them. So here in the Philippines you should really be discerning. If it os near your place then you can just give it direct to those poor people.

I'm not very active on FB. People mostly post mundane stuff that have become tiresome to see. But there are posts that show people's empathy for others and helping those in need. I get a warm fuzzy feeling and even teary eyed. There is still hope. Humanity is not totally lost in it's downward spiral towards self-destruction.

Actually in these two cases, the people near their place went to their house because their names were asked by the poster of the pictures. But if it is to deposit the money in an account - No way , i won't.

There was even a picture about a child studying within the gas station. These people should serve inspiration to others who have a home and parents and siblings to help them study.
