Now that 2015 is well underway and all our Christmas and other holiday decorations are packed away for another year, let’s not be so quick to forget what the holiday season each year is really all about.
Compassion, caring and coming together in celebration of love.
There are still so very many poverty-stricken children, families and elderly, and their needs don’t just go away after the season of giving is through.
And so, I thought I’d do a little bit of a video ‘throwback’ today, to Diwali 2014.
When my son, Dalton (age 10), learned of the plight of children in other areas of the world who are far less fortunate than himself, he took action. He learned that if he raised just $10 he could help provide shoes, food and other comforts to a child in desperate need.
That was all it took for him to hit the streets of our neighborhood to rake leaves to earn just as much as he possibly could, to help as many children as he possibly could. He ended up raising very close to $100 prior to Diwali, and even reached out by way of this video to ask others (like you!) to help him raise even more. And boy did it make this mom very proud and happy to see him so motivated to serve others!
Click play below to hear his message, then head on over to the Tripura Foundation donations page to learn the different ways you can help someone in need today! It would mean the world not only to Dalton, but also to me, the rest of the Tripura Foundation team, and –of course– those who benefit from your most generous donation.
Peace and blessings,
