Being of Service

This video provides a beautiful reminder that we can always have a positive impact on people’s lives, even if it’s just a small gesture. Not only can we promote a positive change in someone’s life, but we can also create a ripple effect that makes other’s want to follow in our footsteps.

Always remember that what you do is important and what you do matters.

Why I’m thankful for Dirty, Messy Christmas
