Rihanna: The Power of Helping Others

Rihanna: The Power of Helping Others

Rihanna - One By One

Singer Rihanna gives an inspiring speech about the power of helping others in any way that you can, without expecting anything in return.


"When I was five or six years old, I remember watching TV and I would see these commercials, and I was seeing other children suffer in other parts of the world. The commercials where you could give 25 cent and save a child's life. I would think to myself, I wonder how many 25 cents I could save up to save all the kids in Africa. At 17, I started my career here in America and by the age of 18 I started my first charity organization. I went on to team up with other organizations in the following years, and met, helped and even lost some of the most beautiful souls. We're all human, and we all just want a chance. A chance at life, a chance at an education, a chance at a future really. I know that each and every one of you has the opportunity to help someone else. All you need to do is help one person. Expecting nothing in return. To me, that is a humanitarian.

"It starts with your neighbor. The person right next to you, the person sitting next to you in class, the kid down the block in your neighborhood. You just do whatever you can to help in any way that you can. Today, I want to challenge each of you to make a commitment to help one person. One organization, one situation that touches your heart. My grandmother always used to say, 'If you got a dollar, there's plenty to share.' Thank you ladies and gentlemen, it was my honor."
