Don’t you love this time of year? Holidays, great food, thankfulness, joy – all the wonderful feelings that are associated with this season. It seems that this time of year makes us more keenly aware of not only what we have but also the needs of others in our communities. It warms my heart to hear and see churches, community groups, families and individuals reaching out to those in need out of nothing more than love and kindness. Don’t you just love seeing that? When I start thinking of how thankful I am, it inspires me to give to others. We are so very blessed and I love being given the opportunity to extend that same joy to others. In the spirit of the season, GE Lighting has teamed up with a local charity, Champions For Kids, to help us help some wonderful kiddos. GE Lighting is challenging us all to participate in our own simple service project and then share the experience here. Just to get the ball rolling, GE Lighting has provided light bulbs for me to give to someone in need and an additional coupon for me to give to a friend to give to someone in need. How amazing is that? I am being given the opportunity to give? What a wonderful blessing for everyone involved.
I plan on taking these light bulbs to our local NWA Children’s Shelter and can’t wait to take it over there. This holiday season take some time to get involved in your own simple service project. You can head over here to get some fabulous ideas to get started.
Wondering how you can find room in your budget to give more to others? Check out this GE savings calculator. You never know, a few light bulb switches could free up some room in your budget to bless someone else, like paying for the person behind you at the coffee shop or dropping a few extra coins in the donation tray at your local businesses.
Every day, we have a chance to make small differences in our own lives that can have a significant impact on our children’s future and the world around us.
