I love how you go looking for one thing and end up finding something completely unexpected. This happened today as I was looking for a book online. I have a friend that works at Harper Collins Canada and went looking for a book by Deepak Chopra called Buddha. As soon as I opened the HP home page, I was instantly drawn in to GIVE.
Give 132: Day 132
Heart warming. Captivating. Powerful. Click to Make a difference.
Words that make you stop and take a second look. I did stop and it drew me in to not only a book but a cause – a great cause.
Little Princes is a book written by a gentleman by the name of Connor Grennan. Connor spent 3 months volunteering in Nepal at an orphanage by the same name. It changed his life forever. He discovered many of the “little princes” were not orphans but rather had been taken from their homes and families by child traffickers. He not only wanted to save these children but started a mission to help reunite children that had been taken from their families.
In comes the cause – Next Generation Nepal.
I have taken a quote from the Next Generation Nepal site as Connor was writing this important book. .
“I realized it was more than just their story. It was the story of how somebody like me, somebody with no relevant skills whatsoever, no deep passion for volunteering, no profound desire to make an impact on anyone’s life but his own, found himself sacrificing his comfortable way of life to try to improve the lives of these young children on the other side of the world.”
Connor has reunited over 300 families with their children that had been taken from them by traffickers. His quote hits home with me. One person who never thought they would change the lives of children in Nepal is changing everything. He is creating awareness by sharing his story, he is inspiring people to GIVE.
Take the time to be inspired today. Read Connors story, read his book, donate.
I made a $20 donation today to help provide an education for child through the Little Princes Nepal program because I was that inspired.
