As we grow up our birthdays become more mundane and less celebratory. The joy we used to get as kid while receiving gifts does not remain at the same amount.
Rubaba Dowla, the Founder & Managing Director of Plus One services decided to spend her birthday in a very different manner. She is one of our generous sponsor and well-wisher who sponsors 15 children from our Chittagong and Banani Branch. But this year she wanted to relive those days of joy and cherish childhood memories through her kids.
She was planning this visit for the past two months. The first thing she did that day, was to gift her kids with new bags and shoes. She personally made sure to find the perfect size of shoes for each of them in the colour of their choices. She felt the same joy and excitement by seeing the happiness of her kids by receiving the new gifts.
Her kids also presented her with a beautiful picture collage. The love and warmth she felt by this gesture was immeasurable. After that, she went on a fun retreat at Jamuna Future Park with her kids. She was as much excited as the kids. The joy in her kids’ faces while going from one ride to another made her day, it took her back to her childhood memories. The inner child in her came out as she herself could not stop running after them and buying them tickets for their next rides.
The day ended with sharing a delicious lunch with her children and everyone went home with great memories!
