New Month, New Mommy.

Happy August! With every new month, there is another opportunity to set new goals for yourself. It's also an important time to give thanks and to give back.

Over the past two years, my daughter and I have taken time to set aside gently used clothing, toys and books to donate to Jessie's Centre, which is a multi-service resource centre for pregnant teenagers, young parents and their children. My daughter enjoys visiting the centre with me where I also take the opportunity to remind her of how extremely blessed we are to have the things we do.

It's also awesome because this goes hand in hand with being a Karma Activist. I love that Karma encourages their activists to do good and do more in our communities. I really do intend to get my daughter more involved with Jessie's Centre as she gets older too. 

I'm sharing this post because I feel grateful for so many things in my life and to be able to help others, whether it is through clothing donations or improving one's health, it makes my heart so incredibly happy. 

What are you doing this month to give back? When you start to get more involved with giving back, you really will FEEL a difference and there is nothing that can compare to the feeling of helping those in need. You become a brand new person with a new outlook on life.

Here are 3 simple ways you can get involved:

  • Donate. From clothes to food to old electronics, donating can make a difference. 
  • Fundraise. Build a team of individuals who can all work together for a single cause. The power of people is undeniable.
  • Volunteer. You can lend a helping hand just about anywhere and people will appreciate the assistance. This can be as simple as an hour at your child's school or a morning at the food drive.
