We are proud to announce our NEW (and ongoing!) project :
Making the World a Good Place!!
“You find it…
You hold it…
You feel its Grace”
This is a project to help keep David Archuleta fans reaching out to others all over the world who are in need while David’s doing the same on his mission. It will take sacrifices of our own time but the end result of putting a smile on someone’s face is priceless.
It’s OUR TURN to make a difference in our own communities!!
There are many ways you can do this. Here are just a few examples but BE CREATIVE!!
Today on my way to work I saw a homeless person standing in front of Dunkin Donuts.
It was frigid out today and he looked very cold and was just standing there.
As I went into Dunkin Donuts to get my latte, I was thinking of my Mom who just passed away Dec. 27th and had her funeral on New Year’s Eve. She was a very thoughtful, giving sweet person like David. I was thinking of my Mom and David and I decided to buy an extra cup of coffee to give to that man.
When I came out he was gone. So I walked around looking for him. I said to myself, he couldn’t have gone
very far now. So I went to the corner and looked…nothing. I walked a block and went to another corner
and looked and nothing. So, just as I was about to give up and didn’t know what to do with this extra cup
of coffee in my hand I walked to my job and lo and behold there was the man walking right my way.
I went up to him and said: “Excuse me but I bought this cup of coffee for you. I saw you standing outside
Dunkin Donuts and you looked really cold…so Merry Christmas.” The man had no teeth but smiled a cute
little smile at me and said oohhh thank you very much. I said, your welcome. I actually went looking for you.
We just smiled at each other and both wished each other a good day.
It really made me feel good to do that.
I did it because I was thinking of My Mom and David. I was thinking about the kind, thoughtful, gentle ways they
both have and how they affect other people’s lives with their generosity of spirit.

Good place for # DA2014
Today I have realized all the good I have done with all my friends from college. We organized social events, donated some clothes and food to orphanages. It brings us joy to help the orphans. Hopefully this can make them happy too and make the place we live better. :)

My classmate and I wanted to share. We brought the joy and happiness of Ramadan with kids in Al-Isa, a small orphanage in poor areas of my district. So, we decided to iftar or breaking the fast together with them. Before adzan is comes, we decided to play a funny game with them. In Bahasa it’s called “Jujur atau Diberi Perintah”. There were many kids who were very excited to play this with us. There was so much laughter and jokes in this games… and in a few hours later we heard the sound of adzan, so we began to iftar or dinner together to break our fasting… and in the end, we give some money to charity to help them…
I want to share my experience when I decided to donate my blood.
One day I accompanied my father to donate blood. I saw several other patients in there. At first, I thought it would hurt, but they feel pain more, because they need blood for their bodies to fight the disease. The question arose…what can I do to be useful to others? I’m a student but being well educated is not enough if I does not serve the public. And then I decided to donate my own blood. The second time I donate, I fainted after donation, but it did not lower my spirits to assist people in need of blood. I dont want to get the award, but the safety of every soul is what I want to strive for. The Third time I donated is when the father of my best friend needs blood for his illness. Now he’s gone, even so I was proud of myself because I can be useful to my best friend.
Above is a photo taken while he was recovering. Around him is my best friend
My name Is Ellis I am from Indonesia.
