OMGoodness The more I expose the idea of Giving Back the bigger the picture gets Back in July I was at a meeting with some reputable businesses and suggested about a Giving Back showcase Well the response from them was so unbelievable that it is becoming a huge event We all agreed that any sales from the showcase will have a percentage of proceed donated to a charity of choice We are so excited for October 14th 2009 to come this will be our first of many GIVING BACK CELEBRATIONS SHOWCASE I just want to personally thank everyone that is working so hard to make this event come about It is such a win-win-win situation When the vendor makes a sale a charity gets a donation the customer gets the satisfaction of knowing that they are getting what they need for their celebration and helping out others Just imagine walking around and seeing all these vendors giving back to our community In our lifetime we all have a celebration of some sort whether it will be a wedding a birthday a anniversary These Paying Forward vendors that will be present are for special events for any occasion It will be a fantastic night with the mixture of music flowers gowns amp tuxes photographers favors limos tasting and so much more There will be Lessings at MeadowEdge Roger s Tuxedos Bayport Flowers Houses to name a few that will be joining with TWG Signature Boards at this big eventThe following charities are also excited to be involved with this Donations were never presented to them in this way We have as charity benefactors LI2Day Walk Schneider s Children Hospital JDRF Juvenile Diabetes Victims Information Bureau Services Let s Rock and Roll for a Cure and many more I will continue on in my next blog for all that is curious to see how this all turns out So far I could not ask for anything more then the positive direction it is heading Best always Keely HarrisCreator of today We gather Signature Boards img style margin 0px auto 10px display block text-align center cursor pointer width 200px height 68px src http 1 bp blogspot com 7QkPS5mlwTs SqPM6fGe3XI AAAAAAAAAC8 -JNfaBzFtpY s200 GivingBackLogo jpg alt id BLOGGER PHOTO ID 5378367685163670898 border 0 To learn more about this Giving Back CelebrationPlease Go To www GivingbackLI orgPASS THE NEWS
A Terrific Give Back Celebration Story
Published: 2009-6-28
Planning a celebration can become over consuming stressful and yet fun amp exciting at the same time I ve decided to direct my blog as an instrument to let all planners to think about a wise approach while making decisions of the photographer the venue the flowers and all the special touches to make it perfect My philosophy in life is to always think about how you can give back while receiving When one is planning a gathering it should always consist of somehow helping As a continuation of my June blog I just want you to know how good I feel on just the discussion of giving back I m really pushing the awareness of how necessary it is to donate or give back to those in need I m amazed on how many people are affected by breast cancer diabetes etc either themselves or someone they love This month I was compelled to donate a Signature Board to the State Farms Grand Opening in Ronkonkoma Michael F Cousins a State Farm Agent had put this action packed fun-filled day together He also had tied a charity JDRF Juvenile diabetes to his program This was because one of his good friends little boy was diagnose at the age of 7 By adding this fundraiser to his Grand Opening there were more outside donation to help raise money for this cause He is a great example of planning a celebration but yet in the same time giving back to those who are in need If you ask me he is a person who I would consider handling my insurance needs because he cares about others img style margin 0px auto 10px display block text-align center cursor pointer width 200px height 114px src http 2 bp blogspot com 7QkPS5mlwTs Skf8hSULeGI AAAAAAAAACs B650G0H40aU s200 JDRFLI copy jpg alt id BLOGGER PHOTO ID 5352524330935482466 border 0 So does anybody have a story to tell how they gave back while having a celebration Dont worry I ll be back with more stories and ideas of giving back
