This kid wants to make a difference in the life of others and it is a lesson in generosity and hope.
Children often possess a heightened sense of idealism compared to adults. They possess a strong desire to make a positive impact on the world and bring about change. A notable instance of this was captured in a thought-provoking video shared on TikTok, posted by @salarytransparentstreet. The video features a young boy who is questioned about his mother's profession.
The young boy responds, "She works at Legoland," the host goes on to ask him "Do you know, how much she makes?" He sweetly replies, "Any price." He is then questioned about his own ambitions in life. "What is your dream job, what do you want to do when you grow up?" The child replies to this, "I am going to be a doctor." He is then asked, "How much are you going to make?" The boy replies, "I am going to make people feel okay," and his response will melt your heart. The child says, "I am going to be a doctor." The host asks a follow-up question "How much are you going to make?" The boy replies, "I am going to make people feel okay."
This heartwarming video received love on TikTok, with 148.9 K likes and almost a thousand comments. @Trobe even commented, "Making people feel okay is the best salary I have ever heard." @her.atlas wrote, "This is why children are so great. They always say things that we forget are important." @Maria shared, "Make people feel ok. Best, pure response! I hope he achieves his goal!!" @Kate wrote, "I hope his family has this video to show at his med school graduation." @bokehbot shared, "This is the end goal of a high salary. Not having to care about money and helping others." This young boy's response touched many hearts, highlighting the importance of kindness and generosity over the rat race of capitalism.
Children are capturing the attention of the internet with their remarkable words and acts of kindness. Among them is Sahana Vij, a high school student who has recently authored a cookbook titled "Bake Away." In a heartwarming gesture, Vij has committed to donating all the proceeds from her book to the NGO, No Kid Hungry, according to people. For every dollar donated to No Kid Hungry, they can provide 10 meals to children in need.
@nokidhungry my Bake Away cookbook by Sahana Vij arrived today. It’s beautiful with what looks like some amazing recipes. I probably would not have been inspired to buy it if I had not seen an interview with the author saying all proceeds support #NoKidHungry so thank you pic.twitter.com/BqpeeaMHMp— Ygritte (@YgritteVt) November 4, 2021
You need to eat," she says. "You need to eat breakfast, you need to eat lunch, you need to fuel your body, especially while you're learning." With the aspiration of making a substantial impact, Vij aims to contribute towards providing 700,000 meals once the initial printing of her cookbook is sold out. When asked about her goal, Sahana simply states, "As many as possible. It feels like a necessity to me."
