365 Days of Giving!

We can’t save the world, but we can certainly make a difference!

We don’t realize how much our community relies on us until we start giving back. Granted, there are people out there who take advantage of the system. However, I’m not referring to them. I’m referring to the people who truly struggle but still wake up, get up and never give up!

After I graduated college, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to see come next in my life. I was just happy not having to write another term paper or take another exam.

Without even planning it, I ended up spending the year of 2018 giving back. It not only gave me time to reflect on my future, but it also helped shape the person I am today.

Giving back makes us more humble.

It makes us more grateful for the things we’ve been given, worked hard for and the things money can’t buy.

It makes us not so naive to the world. It educates us on how other parts of the world live.

It teaches us to be selfless. There is no greater feeling then making a difference to those who benefit from it.

There’s a deeper feeling by getting involved. Something you don’t get by just sending a check!
