During the first adult years of my musical career it became clear to me that singing was one valid way I could 'give back' to others. That has sometimes taken the form of a song recording, a charity concert or donations from CD sales.
One thing it has relied on every single time is the support of my kind audiences. In the last few years I have chosen to champion one charity, which I wholly believe in - run by volunteers in Hong Kong with boundless energy for assisting underprivileged children across Asia.
However, I do not believe that the only way to contribute is financial. Many of us are not in a position to do so each and every day. We can, however, make a big difference in any person's day - with just a small gesture.
Every day I set myself a moment to reflect on which positive action I took that made someone's day a little or a lot better...
I call it The Positivity Report. I believe it works and gives back to each and all of us in so many different ways.
So, what will you do today to make the world a better place?
不过，我不认为捐款的唯一途径是金钱。我们许多人不可能每天都这样做。然而，我们可以在任何一个人的一天里做一个很大的改变 —— 只要做一个小小的手势。
