Introduction to 52
Happy New Year!One of the main things that we have realized over the last few years is the power of personal story. One child dying of hunger is a tragedy…. 10,000 dying daily, sadly, is just a number. We have begun to understand, that hearing real life stories is the best way to get a heart for a particular issue. We want to stay connected with our past and current students, sponsors, participants, donors, interns, fans… our friends. In that spirit, this is our New Year’s gift for you.
In 2009, we have undertaken the task of sending you a weekly story that has changed our lives here at LiveDifferent (formerly Absolute). Some will be from Hero Holiday, some from our travels across Canada, and some will be completely unrelated to what we do. Our goal in doing this is threefold…
- To Inspire. We would love for you to start your week off with an inspirational story that will reassure you that even the smallest of actions can make a difference in someone’s world.
- To Educate. It is hard to keep on top of all of the issues facing the world today. Hopefully, we can help you stay aware of the plight of people who aren’t as fortunate as us.
- To Support. Every story that we send you will be accompanied by a small call to action. We cannot do what we do without partners. Hopefully you will resonate with some of these stories and partner with us.
Our aim is to send these stories every Sunday night. Please share them via Facebook, blogs and any other avenue that is available to you. Let’s get the word out there and work together to bring hope and change!ThanksThe LiveDifferent (formerly Absolute) Team
