Last week I had the privilege of taking an awesome tour at Goodwill Industries of Central Texas. I’ve been doing leadership development work there for the past couple of years, but this was my first time to take the Real Goodwill tour.
We got to learn about the incredibly cool computer museum, all of the things Goodwill does to put people to work in our community (over 1,600 people every year), and most touching, we heard success stories from the very people Goodwill serves in our community (over 2,287 people with a disability and 11,771 people with a disadvantaged condition in 2010 alone).
Whether you give back by donating time, resources, or energy, and regardless of the cause, it is so important to give back. My husband Jay has been serving Meals on Wheels for over ten years, and I am actively involved with NAMI and several other Austin non-profits.
If you are reading this post right now, you are incredibly blessed. You have electricity, sight, and literacy, not to mention incredibly good taste in writing 😉
Making the time to give back is so important. Your contribution may be small, the impacts are endless.
Not to mention, it’s good Karma! Be good to one another.
