Giving Back Is Leading By Example
Are you inspired to set aside time to give back to your community after reading an inspiring community article or watching a heart warming video of how volunteering or fundraising positively impacted a community? In the same moment of being sparked to take action; you wonder when you’ll have the time to commit to the organization and be of good service. I hear you loud and clear and encourage you to get creative on how you can satisfy your desire to give back.
Recently many participated in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge while others did a little house cleaning and donated clothes and home goods to local charities. I would like to encourage you to join FLBlogCon’s FLBlogging 4 Good annual focus of bloggers in Florida, using social media power to benefit an amazing non-profit organization. This year’s cause of choice is the Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida. The Mission of Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida is to create hope and nourish lives through a powerful hunger relief network while multiplying the generosity of a caring community.
From the comfort of your home or desk you can launch an online food drive. Be sure to take to a few minutes to promote through your preferred social media platforms. Don’t forget to use #FLblogging4good and #floridamilk when promoting your online food drive. Then let loose a huge smile because you followed through and accomplished your goal to be a contributor of greatness to your community. In the infamous words of Mahatma Gandhi, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”
