We all know the definition of giving but I just wanted to write it as a reminder. We sometimes forget the importance of a helping hand, a ear to listen or a shoulder to cry on. Giving doesn’t have to be things, it can be time.
I have always been a giver of time, volunteering many hours to different organizations. For the past 7 years I have spent all of the warm months at our local high school(where my son played), baseball field. I organized and ran the concessions. All of the profits went directly to the baseball organization. It was a great 7 years of giving and seeing the program grow. The growth of the business has made me make a hard decision, pass the bat over to someone else but the giving will not stop there.
I couldn’t decide how I wanted to give back, not only to the community I love but to others in need. So, I came up with an idea, " Give Back Bar”, taking all the little pieces of soap, that comes from rough edges or simply just the ends of the loaf. We grate them into small slivers and incorporate them into new soap batches. This is a win, win situation. We have no waste and we can give these beautiful bars of soap to people in need.
We all fall upon hard times at one point or another. Either a life situation or things out of our control, like the 2016 flood here in Louisiana, it affected so many, my family included. We lived in a camper for 8 months while our home and business were being rebuilt. So, I know first hand what it’s like to start over from scratch. In that time so many people reached out to help. I want to be that person, to reach out and give a helping hand. Spread a little hope to others!
I would love to hear of any organization or individuals that could benefit from the "Give Back Bar”. Please feel free to contact us with information. My hope is to reach as many people possible.
Please take the time to Give Back. It is so rewarding and you can help so many!
