Be Passionate In Helping Others

by Joey on April 30, 2013


 If you’re like most of us, you think of helping those in need just as the people going out on the street delivering items or talking to those on need.  You don’t want 50 people out talking to the homeless, but no one actually planning the event. How would those volunteers know where to go or when to meet up without someone letting them know?  You may not know a teaspoon from a tablespoon, but you can administrate down to the letter. You may love to bake or cook for others, but wouldn’t be able to go out and talk to people on the street.

The great thing is that we all can help in the way that we are passionate about, the thing that helps us just as much as it helps others. We are all made with an ability that we are passionate about using, that gives us the most contentment when we are using it.

Find your passion and use it to help those in need!

Your Time Is Valuable

by Joey on September 5, 2012

Your time is valuable.  Time is money.  We hear those phrases a lot, but nowhere is that more true than in making a difference in someone’s life!

While monetary donations are welcome and necessary, that isn’t and shouldn’t be the only way to get involved. Your giving is multiplied so much more by giving of your time. You can find many ways to volunteer your time-stocking shelves with food, helping people fill out paperwork, carrying groceries to cars, or just sitting with someone getting to know them and listening to their stories.
Those actions can mean so much to the people you are helping and to yourself!  These things can even be done as a family, so your kids can learn the value of giving to others at a young age!

Your time really is valuable!

  Someone once said “All you really want is for someone to say ‘I know how you feel’”.  Isn’t that the truth? You just really want to feel like someone really “gets it”, knows what you may be feeling, or share your joy/sympathize in your heartache. No one wants to feel like they’re the only […]
