This year my SOMH demo team started a new challenge called Make A Difference A Month. We're excited to be using our papercrafting talents for good in our community in 2014!
Our first project was completed on Monday night and was headed up by Lori Brausen. She designed these great cards to be given to the workers at a local adult daycare service provider. It tickled our hearts to think of those employees, whose sometimes-thankless jobs really are a labor of compassion "for the least of these," opening a special card thanking them for being that kind of person. Individuals like that truly do make the world a better place.
As we made the cards and signed our names, I could just feel the warmth and goodwill in the room. I have a sneaking suspicion we're going to really find out the truth of the verse, "It is more blessed to give than to receive."
I want to take a moment to give a heartfelt thank you to the Bank of Lake Mills' Watertown branch for allowing us to use their Community Room for free. They are making a difference in our town as well!
If you're aware of a charity or good cause that could use some cards, either as an encouragement or for use in their work, please email me to submit it for consideration for one of our Make A Difference A Month projects.
