I have never been good at holding a New Year's resolution past a few weeks. It usually doesn't go so well, I mean does it really for anyone? This year I decided I wanted to focus on an attainable year-long idea. Something that I feel that I can do and something that I would actually enjoying doing.
I am going to give.
I am going to give up what I can this year to make life better for other people. I have always had the belief that life is better when you give, not when you get. For 6 years (on and off) I have given up my birthday to charity:water and I love the feeling of getting my campaign together and love seeing the impact that was made at the end of it. This last year, I gave up my birthday to both charity:water and TRF. I wanted something more though, something that could give me that feeling of love and seeing the impact all the time.
Like everyone else, I turned to the internet to see what else I could do. I found out that TRF was opening up an ambassador program, I could donate monthly to chairty:water, and I found Be The Match.
I am looking forward to a year of giving, learning, loving and growing.
Until next time,
