I wouldn’t use this to describe the poor or the hungry. Scentsy is challenging its consultants to spend twenty dollars on a refugee owned business to help support those who have lost everything. I can’t begin to know what it is truly like to be poor, let alone persecuted. It is so easy to take advantage of the great things around us and think that we are entitled to happiness that comes from things that are of no real value. I want to challenge you this week to skip your morning coffee. Instead of buying lunch every day for a week, pack it. Make a grocery list for one week and stick to it. I want to challenge you to give to those who are less fortunate and make a difference in the life of someone you don’t know.
You can donate any amount to http://www.gofundme.com/11j4uo and that money will be spent at a refugee-owned grocery store on August 25th. The groceries bought will then be donated to the non-profit organization CRIS which helps refugees get on their feet. Please join me in this great cause. It is easy to fill your own needs, so let’s try filling someone else’s! Please consider supporting this day. No one affiliated with Scentsy will get anything out of this; it’s just an opportunity to give to someone who is less fortunate than you.
