People are looking for a place to make a difference. Yeah there are people who could care less, but for the most part I think most would like to help others.
Case in point… I ran into my kids swimming instructor yesterday and we talked a bit and I told him that we were going to host our Funoween in a few weeks.
He wants to help. If we’ll take it, he wants to come help oversee one of our carnival booths. He doesn’t live in our neighborhood. He doesn’t know us except for a couple months at the swimming pool. He’s not from El Paso. But he wants to help.
Funny thing is, so do our neighbors. There’s something about our community, it actually wants to be a blessing to others.
This year I’m trying to get our Neighborhood Walmart to help too. I’m not sure they will, anyone know a Walmart high up? Hoping they’ll cover the food and also some prizes for our carnival next month. I’ll let you know… and pass on the letter if it does the trick.
