If I had influence with the good fairy… I should ask that her gift to each child in the world be a sense of wonder so indestructible that it would last throughout life.

IHOP National Pancake Day – Service Project

national-panecakeday

Once again…our club was able to help support local Children’s hospitals by partnering with a local IHOP here in Indianapolis by volunteering to work on National Pancake Day!

Pancake 1

We had quite a few club members volunteer to work at the store during different shifts and talk to the customers explaining to them the importance of their donations and where they would be going! Donations stay local to fund critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment and charitable care. Its various fundraising partners and programs support the nonprofit’s mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day

mlk-quote

“Everybody can be great … because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”   Martin Luther King Jr.

Giving…

“Giving is the highest expression of potency. In the very act of giving, I experience my strength, my wealth, my power. This experience of heightened vitality and potency fills me with joy. I experience myself as overflowing, spending, alive, hence as joyous. Giving is more joyous than receiving, not because it is a deprivation, but because in the act of giving lies the expression of my aliveness.” ~ Erich Fromm
