Wordless Wednesday: The Giving Basket
Right now, I am working the Ford of assembly lines. You see, I am co-chairing an event next week, called Choices, that gathers 800 women strong. It’s an evening where 800 Montreal women assemble in one room, to be together, to talk, to eat, and to listen to an inspirational woman speak about her life Choices, and how those choices have impacted who she is today.
Last year we were blessed with the trailblazing Marlee Matlin. This year will be just as fabulous.
But back to assembly lines… Instead of flower centerpieces that look very beautiful, but can be wasteful at the end of the evening, we are creating “The Giving Basket.” On the center of each table, will be a beautiful basket filled with products ready to be donated to families in need. What a brilliant concept.
So today I work proudly to assemble the most beautiful centerpieces ever. I thank the donors and ‘givers’ who helped make our “Giving Basket” so special and plentiful. And I thank all the volunteers who came out today, and helped make a difference. Sometimes giving of ourselves can be difficult- giving of our time, of our resources, of our money. But no act of giving is too small. You just might change someone’s life.
Happy Hump Day. Here’s our team.
