❼ Goodbye America, Hello India! (+OOTD)

I’m off to India because I’m young and foolish enough to truly believe that I can make a difference. Yes, I realize somebody just got raped there. And, no, not every Indian man is a rapist.

Watch this video to hear my heart on why I’m going (and to see the cool stuff I got from Do Something). Enjoy! xo

#1. Do Something

The other day, I was on major stalker mode online. I was just going from website to website (I don’t know what I was procrastinating on). Eventually, I came upon an amazing jewel called Do Something.

Apparently, alot of you already know about do something and nobody told me about it! Anyway, after I found their website, I would not stop tweeting about them.

I talked about them and talked about them until Liz at Do Something contacted me and sent me the amazing t-shirt i’m wearing in the picture.

It’s pretty cool.

If you’re a young person that is really interested in doing something to make a difference, you should check out Do Something. It’s a really nice organization and apparently, the people there are nice too.

Just wanted to share that with you just in case you’re like me and you’re late to the party!

#2. MAD – Make a Difference Bracelet

The second thing I wanted to show you is this amazing bracelet that says “Go MAD”. For those of you that have been following this blog for a while, you know what Go MAD means. Go MAD means “Go Make a Difference”.

This bracelet is going with me to India. I will be wearing it every single day while I’m out there. Why? Because I don’t want to forget why I’m making the trip in the first place.

Why Go to India?

I am going to India because I want to do something to help orphans. I want to go Make a Difference for orphans. I don’t think I’m going to change the world in one trip. I don’t think I’m going to “save” orphans in one trip.

But I do think I can go to the orphanage that I’m interested in helping. I can get to meet the kids. I can learn their stories. I can record videos of them.

I can bring that information back to the US and share it with people. I can share it with people that have the power and potential to help these kids.

That’s what this trip is about for me.

It’s about going to get myself educated. It’s about going to meet the kids that I want to help. It’s about learning their stories. It’s about knowing what they’re doing. And it’s about documenting my experience so that I can come back and share it with you.

A Funny Thing Happened Though

I was on the phone with Mary, my host in India, and she said to me

you know, the room we have for you doesn’t have air conditioning and it’s just going to have a little fan on the ceiling but it does have windows.

I knew she was saying it out of genuine concern for me but I couldn’t help but chuckle. I’m from Nigeria. Been there, done that. I didn’t have airconditioning growing up. I think I can handle a few days of Indian heat : )

Anyway, I will be documenting my entire experience so make sure you subscribe. I will also be seeing the Taj Mahal so that’s exciting.

The best way to subscribe is via email right here on the blog. People that subscribe via email get special treatment from me (i’m just saying).

If you don’t want to subscribe on my website, you can subscribe on YouTube as well — that’s fine.

Free stuff

I will be giving away 5 of the gorgeous GO MAD bracelets I showed you earlier. If you would like a bracelet of your own so that you can stay focused on making a difference, I’d be happy to give you one.

All you have to do is share this post. You can share on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, or via email — it’s completely up to you.

Just make sure you tag @BetaMotivation when you share so that I know that you’ve shared it. Cheers!

  1. Greetings in the name of our dear Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ,

    I am Nehru Naik, I am native of small and backward village NVK THANDA,
    Peddavoora Manadal, Nalagonda District, telagana India. I am
    born in a very poor family, my parents were daily wage labours. I
    belong to Schedule Tribe community which is most neglected community
    in the society.

    Voice calling me ” I NEED YOU MY SON”, I looked here and there but no
    one was there. I opened the BIBLE, God spoke to me through the
    scriptures, Nahum :1:15. According the Scripture I decided to search
    the Gospel to the unreached areas of our society. And started
    preaching the gospel in the year 1992 till now preached 24 villages of
    our surroundings after taking Bible Training in collage and
    established achurch, where saints are worshiping regularly.

    One day while mediating the God’s word, God spoken with me by the
    Scripture James 1:27 to care of orphan children. Hence, we have
    started small orphanage with 10.orphans by providing food, shelter,

    We request you to kindly pray for these children as they need of
    school books, bags & fees. We love you to invite you to come to our
    children home whenever you visit India.

    With much love &

    1. wow thank you so much for leaving this comment. I just said a prayer for you. May God continue to strengthen and provide for your ministry. And God willing perhaps one day, we’ll meet in India.
