“Giving is the best form of communication” (Thai tearjerking commercial)

I dare you to watch this and to not cry 10 seconds in.

I am totally blaming these waterworks on the baby by the way.

Thanks to AFย for the link.

Sherry of Save. Spend. Splurge.

I got out of $60,000 of debt in 18 months using Since then, I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K (savings rate = 85%). I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

      Definitely not office-appropriate! I was bawling.

    I heard about this on the radio on the way to work today, interestingly! I haven’t watched the video but listening the guy talk about it already brought tears to my eyes. We definitely need more kindness to go around in the world!

      Watch it in the privacy of your own home. YOU WILL BAWL like a baby.

    I’ve actually heard a similar story! But it was food and a glass of milk instead of painkillers and veggie soup. But yeah… excellent commercial

    Just saw that yesterday. Great commercial. Have you seen Dream Rangers? Now THAT’s a tearjerker. I was bawlin’ by the end of it.

      I’ll save that one for tomorrow because I cried enough today.

    I saw this on Facebook yesterday, and I found it so beautiful! I wish I had pregnancy hormones to blame the teariness on.
