“To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the WORLD”
This quote is not just words we believe in and live by; it’s what we’ve seen. We have seen ONE individual inspire an entire community in Ghana, Africa by donating a pontoon boat. We have seen hope and inspiration blossom in the heart of a Haitian child because an American made the trip across the sea simply to love him. We have experienced life-changing transformation in the hearts of 10 orphan children that live in our children’s home, because individuals stepped up to sponsor them.
There is strength in numbers, but there is power in one. I believe one person CAN make a tangible difference in the lives of others. I believe one person CAN inspire a nation. I believe one person WILL change the world for an orphaned child in Haiti.
One glowing example is the story of Jill Worley and her mother. I had the pleasure of meeting Jill at my friend Tim Tebow’s golf tournament in March of 2013. In January of this year, I received a text from Jill stating her mom had passed away and that her final request was for funeral attendees to donate to i’mME in lieu of the traditional flower donation. Mrs. Worley believed that she could make a difference and did not allow her difficult situation to limit her from achieving that. We are so grateful for Mrs. Worley and the legacy she leaves behind (view her story in the video below).
Mrs. Worley is just one of a thousand examples I can give of people believing they have something to offer this world. YOU, no matter your background or circumstance, have what it takes to help others in some capacity.
The most unique part of our selfless acts? Most of the time you don’t see the ripple effect that your generous action has sparked.
The holiday season is all about giving and putting others before yourself. This December, i’mME is looking for 50 people to become recurring donors for only $40 a month. For under $500 a year, you can help us end the orphan cycle and give every child what they desperately want: FAMILY. If you feel led, you can setup your monthly donation by clicking here.
