However, the story of Mariah is something that will amaze you and encourage you that when you are passionate about the things that you do, you can gain success in the end.
A 7 year old girl names Mariah is the main character of the story we are about to tell. Mariah had a fairly comfortable childhood, with both parents working hard to give her and her brother a very decent life. Like a typical average family,
It was on one shopping day that Mariah got a surprise of her life by seeing a very poor man in tattered clothes walking down the street. Mariahs pities the man who had sad eyes and it moved her to ask her mom to buy some food for the poor man. Hungrily the man ate the pizza with thankfulness in his lips, not having for many days.
The incident with the poor man affected Mariah to the core. The passion for helping needy people grew in her heart as she was growing up. This led her to ask her parents to volunteer with her to work at a soup kitchen. Together with her parents, she volunteered and participated in other programs that were geared to helping the less fortunate people in her city.
Since at that time Mariah was using her parents money to give away to the poor, her parents decided to tell her that true giving comes from giving what you have and not what somebody else has. Mariah understood what her parents were saying so at a very young age, she got a job waiting tables at a restaurant.
Her earnings were divided half to the poor and half to her savings. She continues her volunteer work and buys toys to give away to children on Christmas day.
It was one of her teachers who encouraged Mariah to write a blog on the things she was doing for her community so that she can inspire others to do the same. Mariah had no idea how to start a blog but with much difficulty gave it a shot. It is a tough thing to promote something you are not an expert at.
