Last year we sponsored a family for Christmas. It was such an incredible experience to come together as a community to help a family in need. If you’ve been following my blog, you know that giving is a big part of my life. I try to find ways to give of my finances as well as my time to serve others. This year I thought we’d do something a little different. I want to help the homeless by providing small backpacks filled with a variety of necessities. I’m going to work with a local shelter to coordinate a day to volunteer and then pass out as many filled backpacks as we come together to fill.
If you enjoy this blog, visit with any frequency, or get some sort of value out of it, I’m asking you to please contribute what you can. If you can only afford $1, please donate it. That will buy 1 toothbrush and help one person. That $1 alone may not seem like much but if each one of the subscribed readers of this community donated $1 we’d have over $4,000 to contribute. That just goes to show that together we can do more. This is something that’s very important to me. I’m coordinating this along with my 9-year-old daughter and I want her to witness what we can do when we come together for a good cause.
I want to thank you in advance for contributing to this year’s community outreach. I’ll be taking photos and posting them once we raise the funds, fill the backpacks, and pass them out. If you leave your name with your donation, it will be added to a note inside of the backpack. Let’s make sure that they feel loved and remembered. We never know the circumstances that led them to where they are and it’s not our job to judge. All we can do is help in whatever way we can and extend love and kindness.
So, grab your card really quick and make your donation now. You know how it is, if you don’t seize the moment, you’ll get busy and forget. So just go ahead, and make your contribution towards this year’s community outreach. Since I’m asking, I might as well ask for you to share this on social media and reblog. It only takes a moment and the click of a button. The more funds we raise, the more bags we can fill! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Sending you lots of love and gratitude!
