With the holidays comes many opportunities to give back to your community. Although, these opportunities and needs are there all year long, the holidays have a way of making us pause during our busy year and cause us to reflect on how we can help others. This year the Foundation, along with the support of many people helped to make Christmas just that much more special.
Live Greater believes that all families should have a joyful Christmas morning. To help with that goal, we sponsored seven families at the Friendship Home (a domestic violence shelter) in Nebraska to get Christmas gifts for mothers and their children. We have been overwhelmed with the generosity of families in our community that have wanted to help with this initiative, and get gifts for these families!
Thank you so much for your kindness! These mothers and children will have a much brighter and merrier Christmas because of all those who pitched in and gave during this special time of year. In addition to giving gifts to the home, the Live Greater team also made fleece tie blankets for all the children (14) who live there. We know a lot of these families have no where to go, and when they arrive at the shelter often times just show up with nothing but the clothes on their back. We think it is important that every child has something to call their own. They might be moving from place to place, or from shelter to shelter, or they may not know where they will be that night...but with this blanket they will have something. Something they can take with them where ever they go and will always be able to stay warm. Our prayers continue to be with these families!
In other Foundation news, be sure to stay tuned for ICONS TV teaser and promo in the near future! The production team, along with Br. Angelus and Br. Innocent have been working so hard to get everything up and running! We are very excited to show you all what will be happening in 2015!
Overall, the Foundation continues to be blown away from everyone's support. May God bless you all for your generosity and know we are truly thankful for each and every one of you! God bless and have a great weekend!
