It has been almost 3 months since Christmas passed. I generally keep the pictures sent in the cards but I dispose of the cards soon after the holidays have gone by. However, there is one card that remains hanging on my refrigerator. It looks like this:
The inside reads this: During the holidays, we celebrate hope. In this coming year let’s celebrate the hope of ending extreme poverty, together, one community at a time. May you be the change you wish to see in the world. Be hope. Be light. Be Nuru.
My sister amazes me in many ways but one of the ways I that I am drawn to her is that she is passionate. When she believes in something she gets behind it 100% and makes you want to get behind it too! Nuru International is that for her…and my heart is being pulled into it too.
I watched this video this morning and I have to tell you that I fought the tears back. My sister is pretty involved with this on her local college campus and I have had the unique opportunity to hear from her a little about the Be Hope To Her Campaign. I realize how much I take for granted the ability to go to the faucet and grab water…making food and drinks and never thinking about the gift of that water.
Surely you have a few minutes to watch the video below. It just might change the way you think of the gift of water too. It sure did me!
And, I can tell you that I will be proud to wear my Be Hope to Her Shirt any time and tell people about it!
