Local Folks with Global Vision

Thanks to media outlets (KOTA) who care enough to feature the good work of nonprofit organizations, we've become aware of a great event this weekend to benefit Bridges of Hope.  I had never heard of this group of inspired people, but am impressed with the entrepreneural spirit it took to found and grow this venture.  They prove that you don't have to be part of a large international organization to make a real difference in the lives of people suffering poverty worldwide.  Hats off to Bridges of Hope.  See you Saturday night!

Rapid City Urban Orchard Spring Planting

Loving what we do and doing what we love.  Meaningful work is even more fun when in the company of friends.  It was nice to see so many from SDSMT show up to help out, and all the families who brought their kids out.  Teaching youth about giving is so important!   Honeycrisp apples, pears and peaches for anyone who needs and wants them.  What an inspired project, and what a great group of volunteers!

Champions of Charitable Work

Working with nonprofits, we come across inspirational people and stories all the time.  I believe the key to meaningful giving is to find a way to use the talents you have for good.  Every time I hear (from my mother) what her church group is working on, it reminds me that everyone can do something, and no talent should go unused.  Things that may seem small in our privileged society can make a world of difference to someone less fortunate.  So this posting is dedicated to the church ladies in Wisconsin who sew for White Cross among other projects.  They whip up everything from cute dresses, to little boy shorts and baby clothes, to sanitary napkins and bandages.  They do so without expectation of thanks, and without much recognition. These are the everyday heroes who are at the very heart and meaning of charitable giving.  They not only improve the lives of those living in poverty, they inspire others around them to do good as well;  I see that my sister is now joining in the fun, and has committed to making six uniforms for the William Deng Foundation (@wkdeng).

 

 

 

 

 

 

There's a 99-year-old woman named Lillian Weber who's involved with a charity called Little Dresses for Africa. About three years ago, she started making one dress a day to send to girls there, and said her goal was to make a THOUSAND by the time she turned a hundred years old.  Well, her 100th birthday is coming up in May and just reached her goal last Thursday, about two months ahead of schedule. After she finished her 1,000th dress, she started making the NEXT one, and doesn't plan on stopping.  She says she mainly does it to help the girls, but also wants people to know that senior citizens can still make a big impact. The woman who founded the charity is named Rachel O'Neill, and she's planning to fly to Iowa for Lillian's birthday, so she can thank her in person.
Keep sewing - you are the real champions of charitable giving!

Skilled Trades' Untapped Resource

We all know that women are capable of amazing things.  Strong, smart, efficient, and especially adept at multi-tasking.  So why do we still see only about 2% of women in the trades?  Wouldn't any struggling single mom don a tool belt instead of an apron to earn 2 million dollars more over her lifetime?

I bet Rosie would!

Workforce Crisis Means Opportunity for Millenials

We're working with nonprofit clients in the construction industry to help resolve the workforce crisis in skilled trades.  We've come to know and love the culture in the skilled trades, and hope that this generation will not overlook the incredible opportunities that exist in non-wite-collar jobs! 

Interesting article here for millennials.
