    One of my obsessions is a geolocation game called 'ingress'. I shared one of my videos on G+ to my friends from that game and got the following back from a lady all the way from Adelaide:


    There are times every season when I wonder whether it's worth the time, money and effort... and every year through one tiny thing I sit back and think 'Yup'.

    For fellow clappers regardless of how many people visit you NEVER know what it may mean to just one random stranger, and you may never find out... but even if you only have a dozen people stop there's a good chance you will make someone's Christmas.

    i often think the same thing, whether its all worth it and its a definate yes. Just seeing the look on the kids faces and adults for that matter and knowing you have brought some joy to them, no matter what their circumstances, makes me happy doing what i do

    Its a great feeling when you touch someone like that with the work you have done. Its a special thing we do here and that is we help create memories for a life time. There are not many hobbies that can give back to the community like this does
