Nov 19 Care Mission
Take the Gratitude Challenge
The challenge is simple: thank three people you're grateful to have in your life, and then complete an act of kindness for someone else. Done!
The Facts: This week, we’re asking you to thank three people you’re grateful to have in your life, and at least one of them should be a senior. Then, reach out to someone else and do something kind for them. Be the reason they’re grateful this week.
But, we’re also taking the Gratitude Challenge, and thanking YOU! Your kind words. Your inspiration. Your caring acts. You’ve done so much to help seniors over the last few months.
Here are just a few reasons we’re grateful for our community members:
“My husband made dinner and asked me to take some to my aunt and uncle. Just dropping it off made me feel good AND we ended up visiting which I would not have done if we had not dropped off fresh food. Food and family connection, it was small but awesome.” —Jessie, Ready to Care Member
“One of my favorite missions was to mail my clients a post card when I was on vacation! To see the expressions on their faces when I got back that I took time out of my vacation to send them a card was priceless!” —Karol, Ready to Care Member
“I met this senior gentleman at the supermarket who wanted to chat about the appliance the air fryer. I really was in a hurry but took five minutes of my time to listen. He was so happy for those five minutes of conversation and walked away with a smile from ear to ear. My five minutes made his day.” —Patricia, Ready to Care Member
Together, our entire community has completed 1,460 care missions, making the difference in thousands of others’ lives.
