Dear Roots & Shoots Members,
Another year comes to a close.
It definitely feels as if time is speeding up, not slowing down. Someone once told me that the older we get, the faster time goes. All the more reason to enjoy the precious moments that we are blessed with!
Just a few of our highlights this year include our inspirational events with Dr Jane, most notably the One Young World Summit in October, and our amazing twinning programme on both sides of the water which, once again, is bringing out the creativity and resourcefulness from our young members.
Recently, I’ve been thinking a great deal about the nature of giving.
Given that we are now coming up to the Festive season, it seems appropriate to devote a few thoughts to it. After all, giving is what it really is all about.
True giving lies in not wanting anything in return; to give without being attached to any particular reward or outcome.
That seems to be the general actions of our young members here at Roots & Shoots.
As another productive year comes to a close I wish each and every one of you a Happy New Year in 2020.
May you enjoy the art of giving this Christmas in whatever form it takes.
