1 Making a Difference ™ shows how easy it is for one person to make a difference through daily giving of gifts. It is my goal to make people feel happy or moved when they read the gift giving stories and ideas and are motivated to give and get involved. I want to stop being focused on self and strive to make serving others needs a priority. I challenge you to do the same. I believe 1 person can make a difference!
An old man walked up a shore littered with thousands of starfish, beached and dying after a storm. A young man was picking them up and flinging them back into the ocean. "Why do you bother?" the old man scofted. "You're not saving enough to make a difference." The young man picked up another starfish and sent it spinning back to the water. "Made a difference to that one," he said.
I love getting cards in the mail, but I always feel bad about throwing
them away. Someone spent good money for that card, but I don’t want to build
clutter in my home by keeping the cards. Yes, I must admit I keep all the
Thank-you notes I receive and some special cards from my husband and sometimes
friends and family but for the most part they go in the garbage.
Several years ago I discovered the Greeting Card recycling program through the
St. Jude Ranch for Children.I have blogged
about this before, see my prior post, but I wanted to remind everyone they except not only Christmas cards, but all greeting cards.Today as I was FINALLY mailing
St. Jude Ranch for Children my Christmas cards, I learned they have an increased need for birthday and thank you cards.
If you want something to do with your used greeting cards,
put them in a package and mail them to:
St. Jude Ranch for Children
