It's been a while since I Blogged. I am now at 53 Charity events that I have done. 53! On course to have 100 done way before the end of the year. This has been one of the most remarkable experiences I have ever done in my life. I had no idea when I started this journey that this would be so rewarding and educational for me. With every event that I attended, I met someone that has so much passion for the charity. Each person has a personal story on why they are putting so much time and energy to make sure the event is a success. Everyone has something that touched them that now all they want to do is raise money so that can find a solution for the cause.
I have done pet rescues, raised money for Cancer, MS, Down Syndrome, Pediatric Cancer and more. I've also done, Walks, 5K, MC'd event and just attended them. I have attended events that had 6000 people and did a Lemonade Stand where a handful of people showed up. One thing they all have in common is the desire to make a change or help others. To me that is what makes the world go around. The unselfish way that each person gives of themselves.
If you only watch the TV News, all you would see is the bad thing that happen in our country. Robberies, murder and violent crimes. You would think that the world could end tomorrow. What I have found out by doing these 53 Charities is that, this is the balance in life and it's not televised. The balance of people doing good thing vs people doing bad things. People that care enough to give up hour of their life to raise money for something they truly believe in. Passion that if you have never volunteer, you will have no idea what I talking about. A feeling that you can only get from "giving" Giving your time, your money or your knowledge. These people may never get written about or even seen on the News. The joy they get is the joy of making a difference no matter how big or how small.
I'm blessed to be apart of this and giving my time to 100 Charities. This has changed my life forever. I'm only halfway there and looking forward to the next 47. If you have charity event that is happening from now until the end of the year, please email the event to me. Johnnysproject100@yahoo.com. If I can attend and promote it , I will. I have been known to do 3 to 5 events in a day. It's the best feeling I have ever had and I have no plans to stop.
Thanks for love
