Mark Jørgensen emulates the spirit of giving
Mark Jørgensen yet again showed his fellow age mates what it means to have a big heart. At 12 years, Jørgensen recently became the youngest contributor to the Hanstholm Asylcentre, where he offered his lego toys games to the kids at the centre.
And this is not the first time that Jørgensen is donating his games. He has in the past given lego toys games to a local school. Jørgensen's need to give out to the needy is driven by his mother:
“I read about the Hanstholm Asylcenter when the center was to receive 100 more people. I told my son to give away his games since he no longer plays them. He said yes immediately,” said Karen Jørgensen, Mark's mother.
Research shows that material possessions are not necessarily the answer to happiness. In fact, some say that the art of giving instead offers one the beautiful feeling of having changed someone's life.
Many of the children at the asylum centre are underprivileged, with a tough background. Other children have had such a difficult childhood that owning games like the ones Mark Jørgensen gave out was a privilege for the rich.
Officials at the Hanstholm Asylcentre are encouraging other families to emulate the Jørgensens.
