WE GLORIFY GOD WITH OUR WORDS, ACTIONS, AND DEEDS!
And I want to be Generous!
And I believe Giving Back is a great opportunity to teach and model Gratitude and being Gracious and Generous to our kiddos.
“Live wisely among those who are not believers, and make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be gracious and attractive so that you will have the right response for everyone.” – Colossians: 4:5-6
I’m the first to admit… I am FAR from perfect!
I forgot to show up at the mom’s tea for my son during pre-K (yes, I’m still beating myself up over that one!). I’ve broken a few table manners during my day (and still do sometimes). And if you ask my husband, he’ll be happy to tell you, I’m no June Cleaver (‘Leave it to Beaver’s’ mom). (Shocking, right?! 🙂 )
Well it’s true… I am imperfect and I’m not trying to hide it.
I’m also not trying to hide the fact that I believe in God. As a believer, I’m called to love and serve EVERYBODY, regardless of what they believe. So that’s what I strive to do. I’m also called to give when I know there is a need!
GIVING BACK IS PART of MY BUSINESS PLAN.
I’M COMMITTED TO GIVING AT LEAST 10% OF MY INCOME FROM MY ONLINE COURSE TO FOR-PURPOSE ORGANIZATIONS I BELIEVE IN.
I am happy to announce our current support of Caleb’s Cause Foundation.
Our friend Marcie Hines started Caleb’s Cause… here is her story:
“In 2012, my prayer was answered and I received direction on how our family could be involved in serving our neighbor as well as giving back to the community. I wanted, Caleb, my son, to learn about serving others and to develop an attitude for giving that he might carry into his adult life. I also wanted him to understand that other children don’t always have everything they need.
When I initially began researching charitable activities to get Caleb involved in, I discovered that there are very few organizations that allow children of all ages to volunteer and help. The lack of opportunities to get Caleb involved in was frustrating and dis-heartening; especially knowing there are so many needs in our community.
That’s how Caleb’s Cause Foundation was created. Since our inception, we realized very quickly the missing need in our local pantries wasn’t food or clothing, although there is always a need for that, it was diapers. We learned that lack of diapers is a leading cause in child abuse.
Since the foundation started, Caleb, other children in our community, as well as Oklahoma businesses, have been able to help out thousands of local children in need by participating in our annual 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run.
We strive to one day be able to provide diapers to every child in need, in the state of Oklahoma. – Marcie Hines; Founder, Caleb’s Cause Foundation
What can you do?
When you purchase the Table Manners For Kids online course, 10% will be donated.
What ELSE can you do,
Our son continues to choose (of his on free choice) ‘donations of diapers’ instead of gifts for both his Birthday party and his annual Christmas party.
Is this something you could do in your family and community? Contact your local food pantry to see how your donation of diapers could benefit your community and help curb child abuse.
