Today I’d love to introduce you to a cause I strongly believe in.
I met a man that’s not only a teacher and a coach, but has become someone I’m pleased to call my friend.
You know I love words, but I can’t say it any better than the man himself, so I’m going to share his words with you from his very own website.
“I became a teacher and coach because I wanted to make a difference. I can open minds, strengthen bodies and be an example.
I looked to others who had made a difference in the lives of many and decided to start Gracious Tree. Gracious means kind and benevolent.
It is my dream that people will see the value in buying this product for themselves and know that their act will provide warmth for a child.”
He’s the epitome of each one reach one teach one.
I have to tell you, this guy warms my heart. ♡ And he’s warmed my body as well with one of his fleece jackets! And in turn, that purchase warmed a child in need. It doesn’t get any better than that! I feel like I have a kindred spirit out there somewhere walking around looking like a Mini-Me sporting the same Gracious Tree jacket! Who knows, maybe someday our paths will cross! ♡
If you can buy TOMS for your feet (and in turn someone else’s), why not buy Gracious Trees for your body? It is the winter season, you know! Who doesn’t love to be wrapped in fleece?!♡ And I can tell you it warms your heart every time you put it on knowing someone else is doing the same thing that otherwise may have been cold. It’s like wearing a hug wrapped around you all day!
Let’s all together go out and help Coach Reed go out and warm the world.
35 I have shown you in every way, by laboring like this, that you must support the weak. And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”
Love and laughter,
