BIG-HEARTED Brierley Hill shopkeeper Chas Singh is providing free home cooked food for hard-up hungry people every Sunday evening at his Premier High Street Convenience Store.

Between 50 to 70 people regularly arrive to take up the offer and find themselves treated to curries, vegetable samosas, spring rolls, fruit, bread - plus hot and cold drinks.

 

The good deed costs Chas between £100 to £150 a week, but the shopkeeper insists he will continue with the scheme he started in late June for as long as he can.

 

Chas said he hit upon the idea after catching a shoplifter stealing a bottle of water.

He said: "It wouldn't have bothered me if they'd been trying to steal beer, but I thought they must be desperate if they were trying to steal water.

"It made me want to do something to help people. If I can stop someone shoplifting or stealing, then it must be a good thing.

"I don't know the circumstances of the people who come here, but they would appear to be homeless or with nowhere to go - so there is clearly a need for something like this."

Chas provides the free food every Sunday evening between 7pm and 8pm at his store in Brierley Hill High Street.

He added: "I deliberately hold it at that time, because there are a large number of food outlets in the High Street and I wouldn't want to deprive them of any trade.

"When I first started giving away free food people thought it was a religious thing, but it has nothing to do with that.

"It just seemed a good thing to do and I find happiness from doing it."

However Chas admitted for the first time last week he was forced to turn people away.

He said: "I only had about half an hour to cook the food and there must have been between 60 to 65 people who turned up so I couldn't cope with them all."

Costa Rica Is Shutting Down All Zoos And Freeing Every Animal In Captivity

Higher Perspective

Costa Rica has announced that it will be the first country in the world to shut down its zoos and free the captive animals they hold. Costa Rica is an especially biodiverse country, holding about 4% of the world’s known species. Sadly, the country is contractually obligated to keep two of its zoos open for another decade. Still, after that, they plan to shut it down in favor of a cage-free habitat for the animals to live in.

Treehugger reports that the nation, which also recently banned hunting for sport, will close the last two zoos in the next 10 years and give the animals a more natural habitat in which to exist. They want to convey to the world that they respect and care for wild animals.

Environmental Minister René Castro says, “We are getting rid of the cages and reinforcing the idea of interacting with biodiversity in botanical parks in a natural way.”

We don’t want animals in captivity or enclosed in any way unless it is to rescue or save them.”

Any animals currently in captivity that would not survive in the wild will be cared for in rescue centers and wildlife sanctuaries. No new zoos will be opened.

 

South Africa’s Only Billionaire Donates Half Of Wealth To the Poor
Category: Uplifting News

 

By Victor O

Does it seem likely that a billionaire would promise to give away half his wealth for a worthy cause? As unlikely as that might sound, that is what South Africa’s only black billionaire Patrice Motsepe has pledged to do. Motsepe who has a net worth of $2.65 billion, has pledged to donate half his fortune to help the poor people in his country.

Who is the man Patrice Motsepe?

Born in the Johannesburg township of Soweto in South Africa, Motsepe learned to be hardworking from childhood. His work ethic was instilled in him with the help of his father who made him work at his family’s convenience store at an early age. A lawyer by training, Motsepe acquired most of his wealth from the mining conglomerate African Rainbow Minerals which he founded in 1997. The publicly-traded company that specializes in the mining of several valuable minerals, including platinum and gold, was established at a time when the market for gold was closest to its three-decade low level.

Motsepe, who Celebrity Net Worth describes as a “literal prince” of the Tswana Tribe, is one of seven billionaires in South Africa and the country’s only black billionaire. He is the owner of the Pretoria based soccer club Mamelodi Sundowns.

Giving to the Poor

Drawing inspiration from people like Microsoft founder Bill Gates and business magnate Warren Buffett, Motsepe decided to give half of his tremendous wealth to the aid of the underprivileged. According to him, the plan had been there for a while to give half his wealth to the disadvantaged and marginalized people in the country, but he was working to tie up all the loose ends to ensure the mission is not derailed along the way.

The money would be channeled through the Motsepe Foundation to help address health and educational issues confronting the poor. According to BBC News, the black billionaire said his charitable gesture was also influenced by the spirit of “Ubuntu,” an African belief system which translates into “I am because you are.”

Motsepe is also one of more than 70 billionaires, including Gates and Buffett, who have joined The Giving Pledge. The campaign aims to bring notable and wealthy figures around the world together to contribute part of their wealth toward assisting underprivileged people. Gates, who started The Giving Pledge with Buffett in 2010, has commended Motsepe for his generous deed toward the less fortunate.
