I want to tell you a quick, important story …
Last weekend, my dad and I read through 25 college scholarship applications at his home in Atlanta.
My mom, dad and I started the Julie Amon Dolphins of Strength Scholarship 4 years ago to remember my sister and keep her legacy alive. Julie died of brain cancer in 1994. It totally sucked losing her.
Starting this scholarship helped make things better.
We work with my high school alma mater in Florida to identify seniors who have overcome serious adversity and do it with a smile. We chose 4 winners based on character, leadership, mission and service. My body is all tingly right now as I’ve just sent the list of winners to the school administrator who handles the details.
Every year I give more and more from my business to fund the scholarship. While my parents have always been relatively tight and frugal with money, I love to GIVE. I just know that these students need the money more than I do … so I release it to them because I want to INVEST in our future.
After reading their applications and essays, I can honestly say this: WE ARE IN GOOD HANDS. The future generation gets it. They are strong, smart and soulful. They don’t give up easily.
I share this story with you to get you thinking about what CAUSE fires you up? What group do you LOVE to serve?
Do you love supporting education? Women’s issues? The environment? Politics? Civil rights? The arts?
The list goes on …
You can give in ways big or small … and it doesn’t really matter the size of your contribution … or if it’s money or time. What’s crucial is that you’re plugged into your WHY and your reason for being here on this earth.
I’ll be diving into making love to your WHY on my FREE webinar on 5/15. Have you reserved your spot yet?
