One of the most rewarding experiences I have had in my life was participating in the first day build with Habitat for Humanity. Helping a mother with two teenage children whos father went in for back surgery and never made it home. In an instant their once happy life had lost feeling and direction. No place to call home. On the day of dedication for their new home I could see a huge veil or despair lifted from this family. The door of opportunity stood wide open and happiness was restored.
While it may not be possible to build a home for everyone, providing the simple necessities of life can bring hope to so many. Next week Keller Williams Realty Atlanta Partners will sponsor its 8,000 child with a book bag for the upcoming 2010-2011 school year. Providing book bags to over 50 schools across several Georgia Counties. Children are often the forgotten victims of crisis. Its important for communities to come together to encourage education and gift happiness to those without any.
I challenge you this week to spread the message of encouragement or to sponsor a need in your community. With life's many blessing share one with the world.
