Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Decorations are going up, special deals are being advertised, and teenagers are making their wish lists. How are you balancing out that focus on getting with ways of giving? Even in families that are struggling financially this year (and that is nearly all of us!), it is super important to be mindful of the real reason for the season…
Every month we here at Hope Coaching join with thousands of others to help the Love Drop team make a positive impact in the lives of one family. Please take a moment to watch this short video and read through December’s LoveDrop recipient information, and make a decision today to join with us! Involve your teen in spreading the love – at just $1, even younger children can discover the joy that comes from bringing tangible HOPE to a struggling family.
This project is also the perfect place to involve your teenager in discovering non-financial ways to contribute. The LoveDrop team coordinates contributions of goods and services that will specifically help meet the needs of each month’s recipient family. What do you have to give? Have a conversation with your teenager about what it means to reach out, and help them come up with something that they will give this month. Especially during the holiday season, it is more important than ever that we parents proactively mentor our teenagers in healthy ways to reach out!
This Christmas the team’s coming together for Diomi and her son Nallee, who are going into the cold Milwaukee winter with very little food, clothes, and other necessities. Diomi has been through so much, including the loss of her father, the loss of her job, and clinical depression. But even through the pain you can see all the love she has for Nallee, who has one of the most beautiful personalities you’ll find.
We want to make this month special for them! We’re working with their pastor to help get things they really need, including school uniforms for Nallee, interview clothes for Diomi as she looks for a job, and food to help them through the winter months.
If you can find it in your hearts to give one extra gift this year, whether it be money or a helpful item they can use, please send it in – our goal is to reach $3,000 worth of necessities.
Want to join us in helping Diomi and Nallee? Here are 3 ways:
Give $1.00 - This money will be put towards basic necessities and care. Maybe even a Christmas present or two (They’re currently spending it alone, without anything at all).
- Give a gift card - Gift cards are extremely helpful, especially to places that are national.
- Donate personal products -These two need anything you can think of in the personal product department: bathroom/kitchen/bedroom stuff, etc.
Thanks guys! You can reach the Love Drop team anytime over at: team (at) love drop (dot) us, or by checking them out at LoveDrop.us. Thanks everyone! We’ll let you know how it goes!
Say the HOPE Coach sent you!
