Many nonprofit organizations impact… Continue reading Day 16: Day of Change

Unfortunately, they never get corrected.  People lack the resources to obtain the proper eyewear to fix things like nearsightedness and astigmatism. The lack of glasses pushes millions of people… Continue reading The Gift Of Sight

Donating Hair To Bring Hope

I have never seen Kelsi so excited to get a haircut. She was up early on a Saturday morning, prepped and ready to go before I had my first cup of coffee. The anticipation of a cut and color was great, but that was not the reason for her excitement.  She was going short and donating… Continue reading Donating Hair To Bring Hope

Day 13: Fill The Red Kettle

It is Christmas time.  Santa ho-ho-hos from his throne at the mall.  Carolers sing fa-la-la-la-la while they deck the halls.  Chestnuts crackle on an open fire.  Children sing songs of a reindeer with a famous shiny nose.  These are the sounds of the season. All are synonymous with the Christmas spirit.  There is another sound… Continue reading Day 13: Fill The Red Kettle
