So my birthday is approaching in a few days and I'd like to take the focus completely off me and put it on those who need it more and spread some happiness 🤗♥️ • I'm organising with one of the labour camps here in Dubai a wish list for each one of their 45 employees where they will write down what they want/need. Nothing major, mostly things that we probably take for granted in our every day lives. • If you'd like to celebrate life with me, you can help me add gifts to their wish list (which I will receive in a couple of days) and/or help give them out to them once all is completed. In my previous labour camp feeds it's most of the time not even about the gifts, it's about being recognised as a human being, spoken to and genuinely smiled at. • Giving is not just about making a donation, it's about making a difference to someone's life, and making them believe in the goodness of people again. If you wish to get involved please DM me ♥️ • #bethechange #bekind #giftofgiving #giveback #happiness #volunteer #smiles #give #birthdaywishes #cakecakecake #wishlist #celebration #labourcamp #dubai #healtheworld #makeadifference #peace #love #light #namaste #lol

3... 2... 1... GO! Peculiar Fact About Russian People #1 - Russian people do not smile 😶 If you walk in the street in Russia, you will probably think that Russians are very unhappy. As most of them will have gloomy face expressions, and if you smile at someone, this person will look pretty nervous and try to avoid eye contact. Please don't think that Russians are impolite or not happy to see you visiting their country. This is just the matter of culture. One version says that Russian people do not smile because of the rigorous climate. Just think about it - when you don't see much sun throughout the year, and for half a year you have to wear super warm clothes, you get a bit tired to smile at every person you meet. Kind of need to keep more good energy for your family and close friends😉 Another, deeper theory tells that in Russian culture a smile does not really symbolize politeness. It is intended to show that something really good has happened to a person and he is very happy about it. Seeing you in the street is a good thing, but not something to be excessively happy about, right? 😀 Still if you are used to being smiley - don't restrain your temper in Russia! We need more smiles here :) #10factsaboutrussians #10days10facts #smiles #gloomyrussians #whyrussiansdontsmile #culture #traditions #society #fact #people #habits
