Seeking partnerships! As we move into spring the Christmas decorations have all been put away, slowing the rate of donations. This was expected. The plan now is to create partnerships with realtors and estate liquidators. When people sell their home and move, or an estate is liquidated, the Christmas decorations come out and are often no longer needed. This creates an ongoing opportunity to receive donations and put them to good use. If you know a realtor, ask them if they would do one simple thing - notify sellers when they close that they can be Light to the World and donate any no longer-needed decorations to our Brigade! I have a newly redesigned brochure and would be happy to provide them to any realtor interested in this simple request that can make a big impact on a family in need of a lift!
I recently posted that more donations have been coming in, building another brick in the wall. Well the wall is now a building. Many more donations. It just keeps growing. I think God sees and likes what we are doing, knows the impact we can make, and the many in need of it. He keeps putting the Light Of the World Brigade in the hearts of many people. We are in need of storage facilities!
My parents always lit up our home at Christmas. The warmth, glow, happiness, and hope it gave me still lives in me. My hope for the LW Brigade is that we can do the same for others.
