Change the World Winners

by jessicaturner on June 26, 2009

I hope you are able to take time and read through the comments left on yesterday’s post – from simple things like donating clothes to more intense like foster care and teaching – the way each of you serve others is amazing. Everyone can change the world. Smiling can brighten a day. It doesn’t have to be “big” to be meaningful.

Okay, enough said.

The three winners are (random.org selected the numbers, as always)

I went into a local eatery in my hometown, purchased 3 gift cards, and told the hostess to deliver to 3 different tables and tell them to have breakfast “on the house” from an anonymous donation. It was so heartwarming to think of what they must have thought about not having to pay for that meal.

I love to help when I can. I have taught my daughter to do the same, weather it be w/ money change or actions!

Hi Jess!
I love this post. It is exactly what I have been trying to teach the students at the college I am working at. My job entails creating service projects for them, but it is so much more than that. As an AmeriCorps volunteer my entire job is a volunteer position. When they come to me asking me how to get involved, I tell them just to start. The problems we face can seem big and daunting and you can have a hard time figuring out what come first. I tell them just to dive in. You can do something as small as buying someone who is hungry lunch or cultivating a servants heart by opening doors, smiling, etc. Kindness begets kindness. So, my long winded answer is just to start. Open your eyes. The Lord will begin share with you ways to help. The more you listen the more you will learn and you will be changed.

Congrats to all!
