It seems like I have been asked that question more in the last couple of day. Not since I tried to explain the Bacon Explosion to a vegetarian have I answered that question so much. So, what is this and what are we doing? Let’s try to explain this again.
I have no idea, but I’m working on it!
That’s right. We don’t know what we are doing. We have never done anything like this before, and don’t really know what the final outcome will be. But that is going to be part of the beauty of this journey; Learning, living, and giving back along the way.
One of my good friends asked, “So, you are doing a triathlon…I’m not gonna run but I’ll be there to support you. But is that it?” That’s a part of it, but that is not IT at all…
Another friend said “That is a very touching tribute site to your dad… is it a one shot deal or will you be keeping at it?” Again, that’s part of it, but that is not IT at all…
Someone else chimed in “What? I don’t understand. What do you want me to do?”
And that is IT. I want you TO DO. I hope that I, along with the folks that I hope will gather at this blog, will inspire and work together TO DO. Whether that doing is volunteering, raising funds for great causes, banding together to offer some inspiration on a down day, or just being a little nicer to that guy at the office you don’t care for, DOING is what my vision is for Wrays of Hope. Just a few people doing a little bit more than they have ever done before or they ever thought they could do.
So, that’s what we are DOing. We will DO lots and try to give back a little at the same time.
This Saturday is the first ever Wrays of Hope group event and we hope that at least one of you join us. Please share this blog and invite with your friends, your co-workers, random people that you haven’t spoken to in a while but need to reconnect with to join in this big event:
What: Loaves and Fishes Food Bank Volunteering
Where: Fishes and Loaves Warehouse
When: Saturday Sept 19th 9AM
My plan is to update the blog with pictures of Saturday’s event and post something every single day. So subscribe, share with your friends, come back, and contribute as much as you can to the blog and to the cause. What ever you decide, DO me a favor and shine a Wray of Hope on somebody today.
