"No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted"

When people don't care about other people, about society, I'm okay with that.. nobody can push anybody to care and help. But when they said "it's bullshit" to people who really want to help other people, I'm totally not okay with that. Not because i belong to this Unicef group at our university, but because there are a lot of people out there who really need help. 

Guy: "oh you're in that Unicef bullshit."
Me: "It's not bullshit."
Guy: "Yes it is."
Me: "No it's not."
Another guy: "Yes it is."
Me: "Well everybody has their own opinion."
Guy: "What do you do?"
Me: "We had presentations (spread the news, trying to make students care about social condition), and we collect donation."
Guy: "Where does the donation go to?"
Me: "To the kids."
Guy: "In Africa?"
Me: "No, in the refugee camps, but since you said it's bullshit, so.."
Guy: "Oh you're offended."
Me: "No!"

I don't know what he mean by "bullshit", helping children.. or children's sad condition. Seriously, i'm not offended by this. I get angry though, but not for me.. only because there are actually some people who really need help, there are a lot of refugees from Syria, they live in the camps, they don't get enough food, they don't get enough warm clothes for winter. and the kids, do you even see them? Do you even know about this condition? they are right in front of our eyes, and some people just ignore them and some others just hate them. 

I was kinda happy at the university today when i saw some students who actually care about society, only a few though, but still it was very nice to be around people who have the same vision with us. some of them focus on helping children, some focus on violence. And some people in my house think it's bullshit, wow! unbelievable! what do they know about life when they spend every cent of their money to buy some weeds? when they don't even bother to read news, or ask other students about the real situation in their country. I don't know if what we did today will help these people in need, I don't know if it will make any change. I'm still trying to stop complaining and start doing something.. whatever i can do. I always believe, "No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted."
