Wow Monday already! Thanks for returning for more light and love from the Make A Difference Mondays community. I hope this is a place of refreshment, encouragement, inspiration, and fellowship for you. I’m excited to welcome another inspirational new friend to the blog today. Her mission and ministry behind her family’s new non-profit have captured my heart and it’s a privilege to be able to introduce you to Pamela and Project Lead Kindly. Please join me in cheering Pamela on and welcoming her to this next round of MADM community interviews today 🙂
I’m from southern California and I’m a wife, mother of two, a registered nurse (worked in postpartum & labor and delivery before having my kids), and my amazing husband and I co-founded Project Lead Kindly, a nonprofit organization that assists mothers & children affected by homelessness and domestic violence.
I also feel a passion to serve when I know there are other people out there who struggle and, through circumstances that may or may not have been under their control, have lost their hope and ability to see their great potential to do good. There have been moments in my life when I have certainly felt that low and the thought kills me to think that other mothers and children may feel that way in their lives. I know it helped me to remember my worth and to realize I can always make a difference, even in some small way, and so my goal is to help more people to believe and to remember their potential to do good and to find hope again, no matter how hard life may get. We hope to help them to see that there are still people out there who care and believe in them.
Our message is about helping others to remember their potential to do good, no matter what life throws their way. We spread the “lead kindly” message through presentations to groups of the mothers or kids we service at shelters or centers, and we also try to spread the message to everyone who comes in contact with our organization (whether on social media, in conversation, etc.). There are various ways to get involved and to help spread our message or learn our message yourself. You can find those here:http://www.projectleadkindly.
It is our hope that we can truly help break cycles of homelessness & domestic violence within families.
-When children see good examples of kindness, they can follow suit.
-When mothers remember their potential to do good, they can find hope & healing from what they’ve gone through when they involve themselves in kindness and service.
-When we provide our grants, we help get these families further away from a life of homelessness & domestic violence.
-By spreading our message, we are hoping to help ALL to realize their potential within to do good, no matter what life throws their way. We hope our message can be heard and felt by all who come in contact with our organization.
Everyone goes through their own sets of trials. We are all dealt struggles and weaknesses and hardships. However, it is our belief that all have that light within to do good. Even if you were to lose everything, you still have that light within you. It just sometimes needs to be uncovered, or you sometimes need to be reminded that it is still there. It is our hope to help people, especially these mothers & children going through some of the harshest realities of life, to remember that light within them.
