Make A Difference Mondays {Volume 25}

Hey friend!  So I recently read about something that I couldn’t wait to share with you!  Maybe you’ve already heard of it, but this is news to me this year, so I figure it probably is for some of you too!  And even if you are already in the know, this post could be that bug in your ear to go ahead & make some plans so you’re ready to go, come National Make A Difference Day!

“This October 25th, millions of volunteers across the nation will unite with a common mission – to improve the lives of others. For more than 20 years, USA WEEKEND Magazine, in collaboration with Points of Light, has brought you Make A Difference Day, the largest national day of community service.  The stories told around Make A Difference Day show that anyone – regardless of age, location or resources – can accomplish amazing things when they take on the problems they see in their community.  Recognizing the power of Make A Difference Day, other organizations join with USA WEEKEND and Points of Light each year to inspire and recognize the valuable work of volunteers. Newman’s Own supports the day by awarding $10,000 to the charities of each of 10 National Honorees and three Community Awardees.  USA WEEKEND Magazine will feature the 10 National and three City Award honorees in a special April 2015 issue coinciding with National Volunteer Week, lead by Points of Light. We invite you to join us in service on Make A Difference Day 2014.”

Read more about it here and let us know if and how you’d like to get involved too!  I’ll let you know how our family participates, on the following Monday, October 27th – but I think it’s going to have a little something to do with Socktober and helping the homeless. Pretty much a trifecta of meant to be, win-win-winning 🙂 — Speaking of, have you see his latest pep talk yet?!

Make A Difference Mondays is a weekly linkup designed to encourage and inspire us to live each day on purpose—making a meaningful difference in someone’s life in even the smallest of ways. There will be five women regularly co-hosting this link-up that will appear on all five of our blogs and we also have three wonderful co-hosts who will fill in as guest hosts on the occasional day that a regular co-host is not able to post. Read on to learn more about our vision, mission, and how to link up!
Our mission is to provide a consistent gathering place for like-minded women to build online connections, share inspiration, and provide mutual encouragement and accountability as we seek to live intentionally and make a difference in the lives of those around us.
Every Monday we will invite bloggers to link-up any blog posts that encourage women to live life on purpose. This could include testimonies or goals from your own life, small acts of kindness or service, creative tips or ideas for showing consideration to others — the possibilities are endless. Our objective is to use our God-given time and resources to His glory!
Have you found us on facebook yet?  If not, what are you waiting for?  ;)

    One thing I love about this blog, about you Sybil, and about this link up is that it is about serving others. It is contagious and it is encouraging. As I was reading I was thinking what can I do, Lord… and then I read the last quote, ” it can be as simple as mowing your elderly neighbor’s yard.” The scope isn’t the main idea, but the generosity of our acting to purposely serve someone else.
    Thanks for the reminders you give us each week!
    Bless you!
