What is the event?

Where and when can you have this activity?

Who would be invited to this event?

How could you help people by organizing this event?


I believe that each of us always goes through situations where we need help, and vice versa. I think this is a personality trait that everyone should possess because we live in a community where helping and supporting each other should be strongly encouraged for people of all ages.

After some consideration, I think the event I organize to help people in need comes to mind as a soup kitchen. This event is sponsored by my cousin, Mr. Vang, who is a doctor at HCM. He’s really wealthy and kind as well.

Every year, in December, he holds a charity event in my hometown, Dong Thap Province, to provide a lot of healthy and nutritious food for many people who are starving in a large banquet. I think that this event is really meaningful and ethical, so I’m willing to lend my hand on a yearly basis.

Because I am not competent at cooking, I just help by preparing some ingredients, contacting suppliers to get better prices for vegetables or fruits, and packing food.

Although it is just a small action, I think it is a great way to give help to those in need, and this is also a great chance for me to share my empathy with them. and I believe that this kind of event is really ethical and can create a sense of community spirit and bring us together.

So in the near future, I would hold some similar events to help people in a difficult situation and help them not feel isolated in this community.

I would not only invite hungry and impoverished citizens in my hometown; I would also invite some volunteers and philanthropists to help me with this event. I also need some local journalists and some local authorities in the hopes of inspiring some more similar events in the near future.

  1. How much funding would you need for this event to be a success?

Because it would be just a large party, I think it would be about $1,000 in total.

  1. What are ways that people can help their communities be better places?

In my humble opinion, there are various approaches that we can take to assist our communities, like organizing some clean-up events like picking up garbage on the street, volunteering at a local hospital, or holding tree-planting events. I think they are really rewarding.

  1. Some individuals feel that people are less involved with their communities than twenty years ago. Do you agree with this?

I don’t think so. I reckon that nowadays, people help each other more than in the past because, with the advent of technology, there are so many social media sites such as Facebook, TikTok, and YouTube. They are a great way to share information about people in need of help.

And through online money transfers, we can extend help to others, and helping people is easier than ever.

  1. How do governments motivate citizens to be more helpful in their communities?

From my point of view, government officials can run various campaigns, like ads on social media and on TV, to encourage people to contribute more.

They can provide incentives like scholarships or grants to outstanding students or impoverished students to give them a chance to have a better future.

  1. Many people give lots of money to charities; is this always good?

From my perspective, no matter how much you can afford to give, every donation received adds up and helps charities get to work and make a positive difference.

But I don’t think it’s always good to spend lots of money on charities.

I think it’s better to get personality involved and volunteer to make sure that our money is spent properly and effectively.

  1. What are some different kinds of charities, and how do they help society?

This is an interesting question. There are so many famous charities in the world today to help sick children, animals, and the environment, like UNICEF, the World Wildlife Fund, and RED CROSS. These organizations helped our society by improving the quality of people’s lives.

  1. Will there be new kinds of charities in the future that do not exist today?

It’s a tough question. But I guess yes. I think that there will be some charities to help save the planet, moons, and stars.
