From Treating Caregivers of Kids with Special Needs to a Pamper Day to visiting Ago Egun in Bariga with Lagos Food Bank | Here’s How #BNDoGood2018 Went



Every year, BellaNaija embarks upon the #BNDoGood all year round, where we give a little back to the community in several ways. In December of every year, we step out of the office to continue the year-round #BNDoGood project.

This year, we had two ideas for December.

The first was to treat caregivers of kids with special needs, pamper and cater to them just as they have been doing for their kids.

So we took them to B-Natural Med Spa in Ikeja GRA, where they were treated to a relaxing full body massage, a body scrub, and a makeover session.

Then we left for Radisson Blu, Ikeja, where together we all had lunch, and provided for the parents a safe space to share how it is to raise a child with special needs.

The second idea was a door-to-door outreach, surprising families in Ago Egun, Bariga, with Christmas gifts. It’s always a good thing to spread the Christmas cheer, you know.

We went in collaboration with Lagos Food Bank, and a few of you guys, our dear BellaNaijarians, came too, spreading the cheer with us.

The families were so excited, happy that they were getting foodstuffs and provisions, things they need for their daily lives in this yuletide period.

And there were kids, too. So many of them. They were everywhere, happy to see us, playing and spreading the cheer with us, singing Christmas carols along with us.

Our BellaNaijarians who went with us were happy they did; happy to share this once in a lifetime experience with us, happy to see how small deeds like just taking out a few hours of your time can make a difference in the life of another.

We’re so grateful to all the BellaNaijarians who came with us, and those who supported from home, and you guys reading this. It would have been impossible to share these little gifts with these people without you, our faithful readers. Thank you.

    I wish it was possible to make this more than a Christmas thing. How do we empower these people and feed them for the 11 months before December comes again? I’m not putting this on BN, just saying. You guys have done well
