I recently received an email from a representative from EventBrite, a company which allows for you to organise, plan and promote events, including that of fundraisers. They asked me to share with you guys about a cause that meant something to me.
It really had me thinking about more than just that. Like, what is actually important to me and what am I doing to help others? Am I really doing enough?
Now, a couple of months ago, I was actually involved in an event through EventBrite, for Hope for Justice, where I walked 10k. They do great works, helping those who are caught up in Human Trafficking and modern day slavery.
It’s one of those things that not everyone thinks about or even knows about for that matter, but the thing is, it is happening more often than it should.
Statistics state that where you live, there is at least one person, maybe more, who are in this situation right now.
Can you believe that? I couldn’t.
But it is true. Very true. So true in fact, that I am shocked that it isn’t spoken about more, when it really should be.
Unfortunately there are so many people going through that we can’t event begin to comprehend?
Just like any other cause, looking into and making yourself more aware of what is going on will help you to have more of an understanding.
But maybe just like me, you can get involved with a fundraiser. Sure, I may have gone through a very long and straining walk which left me fully out of breath (I walked way too fast) but it was worth it.
Just knowing the money was going to a great place and that we were raising awareness for such an important cause was amazing!
The thing is though, if there is something you feel passionate about, you can actually make a real difference. I say this, because we did our fundraiser as part of a group called Pitstop which is part of my church. It started as a little project but it is making a huge difference. It doesn’t matter who you are or what you think you have to offer, you can do something, and you can inspire someone.
Stay awesome and see you all soon.
