One of my favorite things about the holidays is that everyone seems to be in a giving spirit. I’m not saying that we all don’t want to find ways to give back during the year, but the holidays just bring out the best in everyone. When I started Your Life After 25 I knew that it was really important for me to be able to give back whenever we can. If you’ve been following our journey, you’ll remember when we competed in “Foodies Show Heart” or when we did our Back To School Drive for a local women’s shelter. As we continue to grow we definitely hope to be able to take on more causes and effect more positive change.
Recently I learned about Western Union’s “Chain of Betters” campaign and we knew we definitely had to share it with you all. Western Union believes that when money moves, better things happen. For instance a business can expand, a family is able to connects or a child goes to college. In fact we could take the chain a step further, how about when emergency aid arrives the moment it’s needed or when the economy prospers and an opportunity opens up, in turn a community is healed.
Western Union’s “Chain of Betters” empowers people with the opportunity to change the lives of others. As the money moves around the world, creating a chain of good deeds, together we can start to change lives in ways we wouldn’t have imagined was possible. This isn’t just saying money moves for better. This is proving it, together.
During this holiday season it’s a great time to think about how you can give back to others in your own way and create a “Chain of Betters”. Whether you’re able to get out to a shelter, volunteer at a soup kitchen or even give toys to children in need. Your contribution or time can make a difference.
