The song reached number one in Slovenia and Sweden and number two in seven countries; Belgium, Netherlands, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Norway and the United Kingdom. Wham donated all of their royalties to the Ethiopian famine.
By giving all of their royalties for this song to such a worthy cause, the duo Wham demonstrated how they 'gave their heart' that Christmas and every Christmas since. What way do you propose to 'give your heart' this Christmas?
The obvious way is through any demonstration of love between each person and another. There are the more usual ways of charity donations and contributions towards the homeless, hungry, sick and unemployed people. Perhaps if you are an employer, you might offer a job trial to someone who is unemployed. It may be giving a pound coin to a Big Issue seller or perhaps a busker. Perhaps you could become a hospital volunteer for a few hours weekly?
If you happen to be one of these categories I mention who are homeless, poor, hungry or unemployed with little or no means of giving materially, you can still 'give your heart' this Christmas through the exchange of a friendly smile, 'hello' or 'thank you', or even a prayer said on behalf of another.
The bottom line is that we all have been given a heart 'to live and love'; that is the prime function of this body organ that makes its presence so vital to our existence and general well-being.
Love and peace. Bill xxx.
