So, today I had the rare opportunity to break my usual morning monotony by meeting a good friend of mine, Cory Lebovitz, for coffee(Big Surprise that we would get coffee!). Cory is the founder of the non-profit organization Cause and affect Network (or CnA). I wanted to tell you about CnA and all the big things he and others are doing through it, but, rather than cheapen what CnA stands for by trying to tell you myself I'll let Cory tell you in his own words.
Not a bad idea, huh? But, good ideas are only "good" if they are implemented. That's a fact that Cory has embraced with an unrivaled zeal. Take, for example, The Hallows Eve Diversion, a idea put into action by Cory and many others through CnA. The Hallows Eve Diversion is a simple but profound concept:
"What if your holiday was someone else's hope? Is there a chance that a holiday celebration of fun and treats could become a movement of compassion? Halloween is one of the most celebrated holidays in America, and soon it will become one of the greatest expressions of support for those who are in need in our community. This Halloween, let traditions of old be replaced and renewed as you give way to a new tradition: The Hallows Eve Diversion. In 2007, the first ever Hallows Eve Diversion was inaugurated in Lawrenceville, GA. Over 150 people volunteered to help with collecting non-perishable food for a local Co-op, and this led to 2500+ local homes being visited and over 15,000 items being collected in one night. Almost all of this work was done by high school and college aged students." ,Cory Lebovitz
In it's second year(2008), in excess of two hundred and fifty college and high school students gathered together on Halloween night to help collect food for the homeless within our community. Instead of getting all dressed up to go to the best Halloween party, they put on their best costumes and went door to door through Lawrenceville collecting non-perishable food to give to the Lawrenceville Co-op. Sacrificing their normal fun-filled, self-focused, sugar-saturated, Halloween routines they were able to collect over 30,000 food items for the Lawrenceville Co-op. That's not too Shabby, is it?!
Masses of Costume Clad Volunteers Show Up to Help Out
It's amazing the things that can be accomplished and the lives that can be changed when you just care about people. So if you want to get involved and help change the world you live in, you can make a donation here, or, get involved by volunteering at the next available opportunity. I'll keep you posted!
I think we could all learn a lot about finding our cause and sticking to it from Cory. If you would like to hear more of Cory's story you can find his contact info here.
As always feel free to call or email me with any questions.
