Yesterday was full of planning, organizing, and designing for us. Sometime between the dozens of phone calls, emails, and social networking updates, we were able to accomplish a lot. We are so very lucky to be doing something we love: helping people while having fun along the way. Sometimes, it hardly seems like work at all.
We’ve been brainstorming for a while now about a couple different videos we’ll be putting together soon. No, I can’t tell you the details (that takes all the fun out of unveiling them!), but I can tell you that as we wandered barefoot around Kevin’s backyard shooting our “example video” and used his dog, Dolly, as a stand-in actress, there were plenty of laughs to go around. The neighbors were mowing the lawn next door and I couldn’t help but wonder what they must have been thinking as we laughed and filmed, sometimes at the same time. As it turns out, we should not look into quitting our day jobs to start an acting career–we had trouble remembering our lines, some of which were only a sentence long, and many clips ended in giggles.
While we certainly have plenty of fun, but we can’t wait to share all our hard work with all of you. As we constantly find new, exciting ways to help children all over the United States, and soon in other countries as well, we love nothing more than being able to share the news. Keep checking in for news and updates, there will be plenty coming soon!
In the meantime, whether you work behind a desk, from home, or travel for business, try to find a way to liven up the daily monotony of work. Whether it means posting a funny picture on the wall or sharing a good laugh with someone at work, we encourage you to enjoy what you do and incorporate giving into whatever you do. At the end of the day, it will be the most fulfilling part of your job.
No matter how many emails we have to send, how many phone calls we make, or how many times we send documents back to the drawing board for re-editing, all the time spent is worth it with just one smile from a child with whom we have been lucky enough to share our message of hope.
Many thanks to all of you who have helped to make this possible by showing your support!
Until next time, make today count. Be A Number.
