As we gear up for the Valentines Edition of the Family Service Challenge thoughts on the WHY of this movement are often on my mind. A friend of mine recently asked, “What emotional incentive do people have to participate and share this challenge, instead of filing it away as a good idea but never doing it?” It’s a valid question, I’m grateful she asked, and I thought to answer it in this post.
For our Valentine’s #familyservicechallenge event we invite you to perform one simple act of service every day from February 10th-17th or one large act of service for someone who NEEDS love.
Snow Globe Moments | Reflections on Service & Travel By Mykee Saunders Our family recently road tripped it to San Diego. We went the week following Thanksgiving, which meant we were traveling during the first week of the #familyservicechallenge. While service is not usually at the forefront of most […]
Gratitude and charity are two main components of a happy heart. However, these days it seems like those traits are not valued, or even taught, enough. With entitlement running rampant in today’s youth, I decided to take action with my own children.
When I think of service, I tend to think of things on a larger scale. For instance, my dad and sister traveled to the Dominican Republic to build a school, one of my Facebook friends loaded up a van full of goods to take to hurricane victims, and the mayor of my town donated a year’s salary to help fund the library.
So I would like to take that good heartedness and harness it into something amazing. I am issuing a challenge to every family, in every race, religion, and culture. In an effort to make the world a better place we invite you to take part in the #familyservicechallenge.
