Lunch Packs For Hungry Children

So apparently nobody else does anything stupid.  Or at least nothing anybody wanted to share.  I pretty much figured I was alone on that one.  My daughter found it hilarious.

LunchpacksSpeaking of the girl…It’s so hard to teach someone who wants for no necessity how important it is to give back.  When you’re never exposed to poverty, it’s hard to understand the concept that there are little children in our own city living in families that can’t even send them to pre-school with a lunch.  So, with the help of Projects Helping Houston, her “homeroom” class decided for their service project that they would pack lunches and I would take them to Kids Meals Houston to deliver them to children who needed them.

Projects Helping Houston would like to do this again, but on a larger scale! So this morning a GoFundMe campaign was launched in an effort to raise more funds! Please consider sharing and/or donating so that we can play a part in helping to feed these hungry children.

 

Feed the Furbabies

20170124_175247I would love to be involved in this one again.  Through the help of some of their high school volunteers, Projects Helping Houston was able to donated over 120 pounds of dog food to a local animal shelter!  Volunteering to help animals and give them a good home is something I support to incredibly because animals don’t have a voice of their own and are not at fault for the situation that’s been bestowed upon them.  Show me any animal that lost their house or car because they wouldn’t get a job to pay the bills or snorted their way through the rent and grocery money.

You can always check out their latest projects here .I try to stay as up-to-date with them as possible.

Philanthropy

I wish I could do more. If i could quit my job and voluteer full time I would. But my mortgage company might obeject slightly. I struggle to find the time and money to give back in a way that I feel actually makes an impact. I always feel like it’s never enough. So sometimes I just don’t do anything at all.

Knowing that wasn’t the answer, I created a non-profit in hopes that I could find more ways to give back. Not in huge ways, but in a lot of little ways. They say that every little bit helps, and I have to believe that’s true.

If you get a chance go check it out at the website. Maybe now that I’m back blogging I will be better about updating all of our current and latest projects.
