Service to Others

One of my favorite quotes is by Shirley Chisholm. She said “Service is the rent we pay for the privilege of living on this earth.” This is a profound statement and something that I believe in wholeheartedly. I’ve tried to live my life serving others. This service is part of who I am and what I teach my son.

We must give back. We must make sure that we are serving others because it is through our service that we appreciate all that we have. We are to be thankful.

Whenever the opportunity arises to serve, I will always try to be available. It brings me joy being able to help others. To find ways to give back to organizations that service our community.

Will you help?

Wreaths Across America is an incredible organization that purchases wreaths for the headstones of our fallen soldiers. They rely on volunteers and organizations to assist in their efforts of giving back. They receive no government funding. It’s all individual sponsorships and some corporate sponsorships that allow them to do the work that they do. If you can donate a wreath to place on a headstone this year, it would be amazing.

I and many volunteers will be there to place the wreaths on the headstones of our veterans. We will say the names of those that have died serving our country as we place a holiday wreath on their grave site. We want to cover as many headstones as possible and with your help we can do so. Can you please share this post on your social media feeds? Can you please donate wreaths? You can donate  a wreath through our page by clicking here: Wreaths Across America

I truly thank you and appreciate each and every one of you. One wreath for one headstone is $15.00. If I can get 100 of my followers to purchase a wreath we will meet our goal. Can you help?

A Veteran’s Wreath

A Veteran’s Wreath is a wreath that is placed on the headstone of our veterans. It is meant to honor, respect and teach. We honor our Veteran’s by putting the wreath on their headstone. We respect them by saying their names when placing the wreaths and we teach our children the value of service.

Can you please sponsor a wreath this holiday season? My sorority has partnered up with Wreaths Across America to fund raise for wreaths to be placed on the grave sites of the fallen soldiers. We will be placing wreaths for the fallen soldiers on Saturday, December 16th at U.S. Soldier and Airmen’s Cemetery in Washington, DC and we need your help to reach our goal. Our goal is 100 wreaths.

We can reach that goal with your help. We want to cover as many headstones as possible at our location and with your help we can do so. Can you please share this post on your social media feeds?

Day 11: Veteran’s

It’s Day 11 in my #23DaysofThankfulness and I am thankful for the men and women that have served in our armed services. Today is Veteran’s Day in the U.S. and we have to honor those that serve to protect our country. Those that were in the kitchens to those on the battlefield. Everyone plays a role.

I’m thankful for each of you. Your service matter. You matter.

I spent yesterday dropping off toiletries at the VA Hospital in Washington, DC with some of my sorority sisters. It was amazing to give back to those who have given so much. How will you honor those who have served?

Munch was born premature. My niece was born premature. My friends had children born prematurely. We are all blessed to have happy and healthy children.  But, what about those that aren’t as blessed? Let’s help them.

I set a goal of $250. I’m currently at $71.00. No amount of donation is too small. Thank you to all those that have donated.  Your generosity is appreciated. But, I still need more. Will you help? Will you help me reach my goal? Will you help fund research?
