Our message has always been our priority. But then money started coming in from general donations and t-shirt sales. We happily gave the money away to various love-assisting organizations in our communities near and far.
And then we realized as wonderful as that was, we wanted something more.
A talk with an old friend lead us to sponsoring a middle school student to attend a week-long summer camp. She had been working so hard in school and had just been placed in foster care. Her former teacher recognized her dedication, and wanted her to know that she believed in her.
It was the best money we ever spent.
Showing young people who aren't getting the same opportunities that we want to invest in their futures, nurture their interests and talents, and help them realize their potential and worth is how we love more.
We are now able to take charitable deduction donations to our fund via the Johnson County Community Foundation. We are thankful for their friendship and teamwork.
