“No act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted.” —Aesop
In hopes of talking less and doing more when it comes to helping others, I’ve started a series I’m calling Good Samaritan Saturday. On Saturday mornings, I’ll post a little something you can do to start your weekend out with positive vibes by helping to lift someone else up…
In case you’ve been living under a rock lately, or maybe you’re new here—HI!—and you haven’t heard: I’m planning not one, not two but three fundraisers for Pajama Program between today and December 11th.
I came across this organization after creeping around the internet a little to find an organization to give back to this holiday season. I’ve mentioned it plenty of times, but it’s really important to me to teach my girls to be giving and to do my best to shape them into kind humans—which, for the record, they totally are. Having them watch and help and learn more about organizations that are doing good just seems like a really good jumping off point to me.
An organization that gives kids in need books and warm sleepwear to “fulfill every child’s right to a good night” pulls at my heart strings in just about every way imaginable. When I looked into their website a little further and learned the organization was started by a Fordham graduate (go Rams!) who lives right here in Westchester, I was pulled in even deeper. Then I got a chance to speak to Genevieve Piturro, the founder of the organization, and my heart kind of exploded.
