When coming back from my Africa trip in 2018, I knew for sure that I needed to be more active in social and community work, no matter what it is. I understood about the struggle and the problems, but I was also a bit overwhelmed, because there's so much were we need to help, but alone, it feels like I can't succeed all the way. It's a lot to do. 

I needed to figure out how to help and make an impact, even if I was alone here. I founded #OCaiko, a project or charity thing where I wanted to focus on children around the world who are living in poor circumstances. I packed packages and shipped them around the globe - from school supply to games and hygiene products. If the packages really landed there is uncertain, I never got a feedback, but I felt good knowing that if the packages arrived, I could help a few kids out there. 

Now after creating so many projects with a social, environmental, or educational focus on giving back, I thought it's time to put everything under one final name. I don't want to create any borders here and I want my charity project to be an open cause for so much than just one reason. 

That's why #OCaiko is no longer #OCaiko, I will from now on talk about #OCshare.  

This means. #OCaiko started with me sending out boxes, which I still want to do, but I also want to reach out to communities in the direct way and not shipping boxes throughout the globe. 

#OCshare is about community spirit, helping others, educating each other on food, nutrition, and health. Sharing resources, sharing common goods, donating foods, donating things, or simply donating toys - clothes - whatever it is.

#OCshare captures it all. The cool thing about it is that we can do this in every city on the globe and we can work with local organizations to emphasize our message and maximize the effort. Every helping hand and big smile can change a lot.

Especially in times of Covid, it is important to reach out and lend a helping hand! #OCshare will make us connect closer and together I believe that we can do so much better!
It's time to bring healing into every community! 

Let's work together ~
