As we grow up, kids are adults and in their own homes, we have a little more time to give back. In my first career I arranged for high school students to learn through being involved in Service Learning. Wow, so many teachable moments! Now George and I are both brainstorming…Honor Flight, Rocking Babies at Children’s Hospital, Reading to children or listening to children read, the list goes on and on. Time to explore. Time to give is not measurable bu valuable. Hoping this is going to fun and filled with new experiences.
Extra funds are also needed by so many organizations.
Andi, our oldest daughter was born a leader…Her second grade teacher once shared that if Andi did anything wrong, it was her idea. She is an amazing leader (she will say you amazing…you are my mother) for a nonprofit, YOUNG LIFE. The mission is devoted to introducing adolescents to Jesus Christ and helping them grow in their faith. Funds are always needed to help with ongoing programs and sending teens to summer camps. I do donate funds from my commission on every property I sell….a small way to support tomorrow’s most valuable resource..our YOUTH.
OPEN to any ideas for service projects as George and I do some thinking. FYI….time will be limited during golf season and spring when the real estate market clicks!
