Give and It Shall Be Given Unto You!!

I recently found myself needing help.................but it wasn't until I set out to look for help, and received it from a complete stranger - that I remembered one of my life's golden rules "Give, and it shall be given unto you". It was then that I posted an ad online asking and testing others - to see if anyone else wanted to begin giving back to others who were also in need. I wanted to share with them my experience and the sheer joy of what it meant to "pay it forward" To my surprise - this started a movement of LOVE in my local community. In a few short months, a newreporter showed up at my doorstep, neighbors, friends and family all joined me in making a real difference in the lives of needy individuals/families. We begin helping to feed the hungry, giving people rides to work, providing moving boxes to those in need, helping single mothers with school supplies, encouraging others to give back, praying for the sick, and many other kind acts.

I've always known the power of giving. But, it wasn't until it became very personal for me - that I had a real "eye-opener". I started a non-profit faithbased organization called People4thePeople (feel free to visit our website at It is a blessing for me to wake up each day, knowing that I have finally discovered my purpose and the real meaning to life!!! People don't care how much you know, until they know how much you care - and GIVING seems to be the perfect vehicle to carry LOVE to others. I want to inspire a movement of love across America and throughout the rest of the world. This way others can also discover their purpose - which I believe is: To love your neighbors as yourself (Leviticus 19:18). This takes your attention off of your own circumstances and allows you to focus on someone else - and ultimately gets God's attention so that He can now begin to focus on you~

Many Blessings to you all!!!!!!!!!!!
