Giving — A life-changing act of kindness
TrueMove is a mobile telecommunications company based in Thailand. To emphasize the meaning of its tag line, “Giving is the best communication,” the company has launched this touching three-minute video, embedded here on The Inspiration Room website. Here’s the set-up: An angry pharmacy owner rushes out and chases after a little boy who has just stolen some packs of pills and a bottle of medicine. Hearing the commotion, the owner of a restaurant across the narrow street rushes out to see what is happening. He and his young daughter don’t hesitate to get involved, including paying for the medicine and more. The story unfolds from there. It squeezes a thirty-year period into three fast-moving minutes. (An English translation of the dialogue appears at the bottom of the screen, so you may want to watch the video more than once to capture all the nuances—although the scenes essentially tell the story themselves with little need for words.) You can also watch the video here on YouTube.
