Volunteering has always been an important part of my story. As a child I remember volunteering at community events with my parents. In college, I regularly volunteered with the Wisconsin Alumni Student Board. And, since moving to Nashville, I have volunteered with several organizations, including Mercy Ministries and Thistle Farms.
Today’s giveaway is Change the World for Ten Bucks by Eugenie Harvey, a book about how small actions can make a big impact on the world. Though it is not a faith-based book, it resonated with me so much as a Christian. The bible talks SO much about the importance of being kind, loving your neighbor, etc. and that is the heart of this book. I think Jesus would be a fan.
Check out this video. I guarantee you will be inspired by Eugenie Harvey and want a copy of this book. (Eugenie spoke this week at the National Conference on Volunteering and Service). After watching it I was like, I NEED that. It is so my heart.
As a mother, I desire to raise Elias to be aware of the world around him and to desire to make a difference. As he gets older, I know we will do our best to demonstrate the importance of kindness and that seemingly simple actions like a “hello” or baking cookies can make a big difference.
Check out the book’s cool site here.
To win one of three copies of the book, tell me a small action you can do or do do to change the world around you.
PLEASE leave your email address in the comments if it is not in your blogger profile. It is frustrating when people win and I have no way of contacting them! Thank you.
