Philanthropy + Hard Work = Exciting Day!

Attachment parenting, Family, Mother, Parenting, Publishing a children's book

I will shamelessly admit I donate a little over $1,000.00 a year to the work of the Valley of the Sun United Way. If you’ve read many entires of my blog you know my family struggles financially. This is why I give:

There is someone out there, in your neighborhood, worse off than you.

There are people who would love to be in my “financial distress” with the promise of another paycheck and upward opportunity in my company.

Because I believe in the work of the United Way.

Doesn’t this picture melt your heart!? Zaccai has to be one of the sweetest, caring babies I know. He loves his sweet little friends and savors each moment. I can learn from him.

I give, because I receive. It’s that simple. Sure, Absolutely, I can use the money! However, I know that there are friends out there that need it more. Today was our hero day at work and I was superwoman. I didn’t buy a thing- just improvised!
