One organization I greatly admire is called The Note Project. Their movement is simple. They believe the world can be “a million times better” by sending one million notes of appreciation. On Day 166 I participated in The Note Project movement to help reach the “one million notes of appreciation” goal. Today Care2 inspired me to take The Note Project concept one step further and write a note of encouragement to a child in need.
Day 289: Give 289
Quoted by The Christian Blind Mission working in partnership with Care2:
“God loves all children, but too often, those with disabilities are overlooked by national health, educational and development programs. In many communities, children with disabilities are hidden out of shame or superstition and turned away by schools. The time and expense of caring for disabled children without any help locks their families in poverty.
In the poorest countries, up to 80 percent of children with disabilities die without help. All children are a blessing — regardless of their abilities to see, hear or walk. Sadly, too many children don’t hear this enough.
Send a prayer or message of hope to “forgotten” children and remind them that they are loved no matter what.”
Here is the note I have submitted to encourage a child that needs desperately needs to hear them.
“I believe we are all born on this earth with a purpose, with a light that shines brightly in or soul. We are all here to bring a message to others, to teach others about our light. To teach them the beauty that is in our soul. Find your light and share it with the world. Find the beauty in your soul and tell the world what you need to teach them. We all have things in our life we can’t do. Fear holds us all back at some time in our life. Find what you can do. Find the brilliance in you no matter what it is and live that brilliance so your light shines so brightly it changes the world. It changes they way people look at you from the outside and they see you for who you truly are on the inside. Know you are loved from corners of the earth you may never even imagine. There are people that care.”
