We have done so many great things together in the past year. And I am not sure if you realize it but YOU have done so many great things this past year. Did you know with all the banks and monies donated we co-sponsored a house for Habitat for Humanity? Did you know all of you who purchased a Joe’s Turn bag were part of the $1ok+ we donated to Turnstone, a non-profit center that empowers people with physical disabilities to reach for their full potential in every aspect of life. How about all you Platinum gals? Did you know since August, together we raised over $18k for CHASA, a non-profit that offers support to families of infants, children, and young adults who have hemiplegia or hemiplegic cerebral palsy, often due to perinatal stroke, childhood stroke, or other rare causes. How about sponsoring a luncheon to help raise money for the Boys and Girls Club in Fort Wayne? And we can’t forget the 100+ families that received Spread the Love gifts for the Holidays thanks to your nominations…..or the 50+ kids who got back to school supplies and clothing…….or all the orphanages around the world that we have shared with. There are so many great things we have done. Things that would not be possible if we all weren’t in this together. Thank you!
I am so excited as we move into a New Year. I have grown so passionate about helping as much as we can. Yes, I always have been, but it is amazing how much we can do when we do it together. Sometimes when you feel like you are the only one trying to pull something off, it is hard and a bit overwhelming.
I’ve got a little homework for you. Remember the Tiny Sparrow Dress we sold and raised quite a bit of money for? Well, I think this time it is up to you to pick the non-profit. You guys always jump in heart over heals and help out with CHASA, and Turnstone, and Habitat, that I think it is time to exchange the favor. I am going to come up with a dress to sell, you are going to come up with a deserving group and then we are going to vote on what charity the proceeds will go to. Sound like a plan? Oh, I have so many plans….. but first let me devise this plan and get you the details…..hopefully by January 15
