Our father is the perfect example of Creating the Good. He is the most giving man that we know. Some of our greatest memories of our childhood were of him buying turkeys and hams and doorbell ditching them to neighbors and friends each holiday season.
There is nothing that we would love to do more than instill this sense of giving in our own children. We decided to follow his example, and do a little doorbell ditching ourselves.
We were beyond excited when approached with the Challenge to Create the Good.
We decided to Create the Good in our own community. It was a simple gesture, but one that is sure to leave an impression with our own children and those that we served.
There are so many in need. In our particular area, there is a sweet family whose father was just diagnosed with brain cancer. He has undergone surgery. His amazing wife has had to be so strong for her six children during this trial. Steph and I really wanted to get our kids involved in spreading some love to this incredible family. Although it wasn't much, it was still something. Something to brighten their day and hopefully let them know they are loved and thought of.
We even made my husband disguise himself for the drop off. We wouldn't want our cover to be blown.
