As we reflect on the many blessings 2017 brought our family, we can’t help but be grateful for the opportunities we’ve been given to give back to the community as well. Not only has our family fund allowed us to raise money and support local nonprofits in the area, but doing so has brought our family closer and helped us shape our boys into the amazing men they are becoming.
Cole is well on his way into the world of welding, while Zach is still going strong in his lacrosse and starting to prepare for applying to colleges. In the midst of all the chaos, though, our boys still find time to help out with Good Dog and find deserving nonprofits to support.
Make 2018 a year for your family to give back to the community more as well, and see the amazing benefits you’ll reap, including quality time with your children, an increase in generosity, teamwork, problem-solving and empathy and so many amazing memories.
Consider finding nonprofits to donate your time to by serving families in need, volunteering at animal shelters or community drives and more. Even if you don’t have much time to give back in 2018, your family can still make a difference by donating financially to some of those same nonprofits in your community you care about. Either way, we want to challenge you to reflect on the many blessings your family received last year and resolve to give back to the community in some way.
