Giving back to the community and inspiring others have always been important to me. Adopting families, beach clean ups, and clothing drives are not strange concepts and I have always jumped at the opportunity to be involved. A few weeks ago I learned about Live A Great Story, a San Diego based company with a mission to encourage people to “live a great story” through the pursuit of one’s interest and goals. 10% of sales go into the story fund which is used to reinvest in unique and inspiring stories including community improvement and non profits…LOVE! In addition to their super soft tees and stickers the company has begun installing street reminders (murals) in over 400 locations across the country, including my favorite, located near Petco Park in the Gaslamp of San Diego.
Learning more about the company I immediately thought about my boyfriend and his grassroots effort to bring a bit of holiday cheer to the homeless of San Diego. Each year he, along with friends and family, put together bags of items that we all take for granted: socks, shirts, gloves, toothpaste, deodorant, and deliver them on Christmas morning before opening their own gifts. It may be a small thing in the bigger picture of homelessness but to the person receiving a bit of holiday cheer and kindness I am sure it means the world. What are some inspiring things you are doing in your own communities?
