Making a Difference

There are so many things you can do in this world to make a difference.  You could help at food shelters, donate your old clothes to the these shelters rather than dropping them off in the convenient bins by grocery stores. Organize or prepare meals for those in need in your community or raise money for charities. 

Locally...

Habitat for Humanity is a great local organization to volunteer at. Get a group together or sign up on your own, it's a great way to help those less fortunate right hear in your own community! Check out their websites at www.habitat.ca or www.habitat.org .

Feed the hungry...there are so many shelters and organizations to support in the region.  Also, clothes donations, food.

I volunteer for the Women Alive Waterloo Christian Conference.  Not only does this conference inspire almost 400 women annually, it fills me up too !

There are endless possibilities, but it's just great to get involved.  We live in such an "it's all about me" world, but infact the more you give "of" yourself, the better you feel! 

Proverbs 3 vs. 27 "Whenever you are able, do good to people who need help."

In November of 2007 and 2008, my husband and I went on our first and second mission trip !  We went to Mexico with a group of people from our church and a church in Burlington, to build 3 homes.  It was the most amazing experience...here are a few pictures!  You can also check out the organization we went through.  ...the website is www.yugo.org

Our 3 daughters have all been on this mission trip as well, some twice !These pictures are from our first trip...
