Donating & Giving
Yesterday I took a moment to visit some friends that organized a clothing drive. It was for United Way's Main Street Project, Walk With Dignity. It was completely organized via social media and people ended up donating 55 bags of gently used clothing. What a great idea!

My thoughts on giving and donating have always been similar to Mother Teresa:
"Let us not be satisfied with just giving money. Money is not enough, money can be got, but they need your hearts to love them. So, spread your love everywhere you go."
Yesterday I was privileged to witness people, that I think are awesome, donating the most important thing, love. Love for human beings and for life.
I created an ice cream company to not only produce great food locally but also to give back to others. We are thankful for so much and do not take life for granted as it can change in a heartbeat. I heard about a man who was in his 90's. Someone asked if he had any regrets or words of wisdom. He said "I wish I would of eaten more ice cream". Life is truly unexpected. Keep giving, it's why we were created.
Peace. Love. Joy.
