#PRIDEEXPRESSYOURSELF PLAYLIST WITH @XDiegoMontana 

PRIDE for me means being your 100% true authentic self in the face of adversity, hate, shame, and the countless other things that can stand in your way. Being a guide or a light for those that can’t stand solely on their own two feet yet, because of the fear of those things. I chose the songs on this playlist, because they were authentic. Not necessarily the typical “PRIDE ANTHEMS” you’ll hear around the country this month, but things that people took, and interpreted in a way that made sense for them. Remember during this month, and every other month for that matter that we are all human, and if someone or something isn’t putting your life in danger or harms way, just let them be. We can all co-exist, and let other humans be themselves.

– Diego

Indonesian Communities’ Ramadan Charities, Volunteering and Meet Ups

Ramadan month is a special month during the year for muslims all around the world. Not only a month of fasting, but also a perfect month to increase of doing good deeds and charity. Some of Indonesian Smule Groups managed to gather donations during the month to share their happiness with those who less fortunate. They gave the money or bought some food or other needs to orphans and elderly people, also provided meals for “iftar” (meals for breaking the fast) and for “suhoor” (pre-dawn meals before fasting) to those who are in needs. Ramadan is also a perfect month to regroup with families and old friends, usually called “mempererat tali silaturahmi” (tighten the relationship). Therefore, there were tons of meetups happening in the community: breaking the fast or having suhoor together.

 

SmuleNesians: Charity for Orphans at Tebet Orphanage.

Every year on Ramadan, the SmuleNesians Community always held an annual charity program. This year, they held the charity event at Tebet Orphanage in Jakarta, Indonesia. During the month, the members donated their money and all the funds collected are given to 36 orphans who are less fortunate, in the form of foodstuffs, basic necessities, and money to assist the operational activities in the orphanage. On that day, before breaking the fast, the community members were entertaining the orphans by singing for them, and also by singing together with them.
