Maria White, an LKR agent has a story to share about her experience that day.
It’s a great time to give back! Whether you are ringing a bell, buying an extra gift for a child in need or baking a few extra cookies for a loved one. This is truly a wonderful time of year to give back. The feeling of brightening someones day is soothing to the soul. This past week, we had a day that REALTORS® in the great state of Iowa rang Salvation Army’s bells. What a great time to spread Holiday cheer! I decided last minute to take my 4 year old with me. Wow, what a rewarding experience. Not only did we enjoy ourselves to the fullest, but teaching a child to take time to give back to those in need was incredible! My little guy was full of energy and at some points had lines of kind folks waiting to give him a donation to put in the red kettle. (He made sure to tell them that it was his favorite part). With his blue apron on and some warm winter gear, he smiled and wished everyone a great day. This is such an easy lesson in life.
As quoted by Maya Angelou
“When you learn, teach. When you get, give.”
I got to do both that day! Thanks to the Salvation Army and Iowa Association of REALTORS®. So during this Holiday Season, don’t forget that you can make a difference. It may seem small in your eyes, but everlasting to someone else. Wishing everyone an enjoyable Holiday Season!
