BENEFITING: Embrace Greatness Venture Good
EVENT DATE: May 11, 2016
There is important work to do. This work involves you and me. We know what this work is, and if you sit quietly, you can feel it too… We have become separated from one another, yet we are all connected. We believe we are alone and must fight for ourselves, feeling like we are each too small to make an impact, but in reality we are one human family, and united we are powerful beyond belief!
It may seem like small acts of gratitude and kindness, to each other are insignificant, but in sum, the effects ripple further than we could ever imagine, and the impact is massive!
This is the magic of putting gratitude into action. The Gratitude Project was started by a small group of friends with big hearts, that were willing to play a very big game.
The Game: to look for and uncover the “light” in all human hearts and situations, and through small acts of kindness and gratitude, create human connections through that light. Our immediate goals:
1) Create a strong online presence that connects you to the hearts and stories of other humans in remote areas of the globe.
2) Raise $111,111 in collaboration with Inspire Transformation, a 501(c)3, to support the relief work of Hannes Pieters, an “angel” in the Nkomazi region of South Africa, whose selfless commitment to the people has touched us deeply and inspired this project.
We plan to create sustainable support which includes basic essentials, medication and the building of a community center, safe shelter and a basketball court for the kids! We invite YOU to join us on this incredible journey, in whatever form that may take, and begin to discover how amazing it feels to put gratitude into action!
