We Give Back


♥ phi·lan·thro·pista person who seeks to promote the welfare of others, especially by the generous donation of money to good causes.

♥ vol-un-teera person who voluntarily offers himself or herself for a service or undertaking or a person who performs a service willingly and without pay.

The two words above mean so much to me. We pride ourselves for giving back by being volunteers and philanthropists. This page is dedicated to showcase some of the things we do in our spare time that benefit others. This is not a bragging place but a place to encourage others to get involved. All of this was done while working a 45 hour work week. Now as of May 2016 I am on Maternity leave. I live for being busy and the feelings I get doing all of these things for others makes my heart grow. I will slowly update this page as I remember events I have volunteered at or fundraisers I have hosted, but Id say this is a pretty good start!
