Giving is the Best Communication

The English subtitles change rapidly, so you might have to pay close attention to the subtitles, or watch the video repeatedly. Although I chose to watch the video several times, I understood the story during my first viewing even though I could not follow the subtitles.


I included the video because I believe strongly that giving (such as donating, volunteering, and working pro bono) is the best form of communication. A message communicated well has the power to resolve, heal, or destroy. The following video illustrates how an act of kindness can communicate the need for action.

The Thai telecommunications conglomerate True is getting rave reviews worldwide for its latest spot, “Giving,” which tells the story of a man unexpectedly rewarded for a lifetime of good deeds he performed without expecting anything in return.

Your Turn

  • What good deeds have you done lately?
  • What are you doing to make the world a better place?
  • How do you communicate your thoughts, emotions, and ideas?

Thanks to the Thai telecommunications conglomerate True, TrueMove, YouTube, and all the other people who directly and indirectly contributed to the pictures and video I included in this post.



  1. I have seen this many times and never tire of seeing it again. I am in agreement with you.

    It was through others I was touched first hand by that kind of communication. It has benefitted my life and the lives I have touched in turn. I am deeply moved and grateful for them and their examples

    Thank You!
