I bet there are many people reading this column that get involved in some way with different organizations to help in whatever way you can. This week I have been thinking about different ways that people get involved to make a difference in the world. There are so many organizations that you can align with for various purposes such as improving health, empowering others, saving animals and many more. My daughters want to get involved whenever they see someone or something that needs help and it is such a wonderful spirit to have that I encourage it wherever I can.
This week my daughter decided to have a lemonade stand with her friend so that they could raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. This is something that her school is involved with for a couple of weeks and they thought this would be a great way to help out.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is the world's largest voluntary health agency dedicated to blood cancer. The LLS mission: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. LLS funds lifesaving blood cancer research around the world and provides free information and support services.
I was happy to see so many people encouraged by the spirit of these girls wanting to spend their Saturday raising money and awareness by offering lemonade for a donation. The girls felt really good about their results and the opportunity to make a difference.
Big or small, the amount of time, effort or money that is put forth towards something that will make a difference in just one person's life is a great thing. I encourage each and every one of you to help others to find a way to do their part and together we can make every little bit count.
My affirmation for you this week is;
I seek out new ways to get involved with organizations
that speak to my heart and know that everything I do counts
towards a beautiful end result.
