Amazing weekend!

This past weekend was awesome! Normally, we would have gone out to serve, but instead we got a chance to go out and support some of the people that are supporting us!

Friday, we attended the Carnival Voya put on to raise resources for the three organizations they have chosen to sponsor this year.

Saturday, we supported Pleasant Words, LLC for the annual women’s conference. It was an amazing time because during their lunch they honored LBW with support and encouragement.

Sunday, we were at Vinings Church in Smyrna, GA for their grand opening. They partnered with us to raise carrying bags for our #carryATL campaign. Additionally, next week (October 4th) they will go out with us to serve those who are in need.

Lastly, next month we will release our next big project. It will be one of the most daring things we will attempt to continue serving undeserved communities.

Second Corporate Sponsor – Voya!

This coming Friday, #lovebeyondwalls will be one of the three charities adopted by Voya Investments. The other two wonderful charities are (The Ronald McDonald House & The Wounded Warrior Project). Not only is this a huge blessing, this partnership will help us continue to do the work in under-resourced communities in the Atlanta area.

Leadersource 1.0 – Saturday

This coming Saturday (20th), a small group of fifteen leaders will visit our headquarters (in College Park), sit around tables in our idea room, and learn leadership, technology/communication, storytelling, and outreach lessons we’ve learned over the last 8 and a half months we’ve been around.

We are calling it leadersource 1.0 because we believe leaders should have small gatherings that teaches, trains, and resources them with vital information to do effective work in the 21st Century. Our passion is to create idea-based environments where leaders can study and have hands-on training… This type of environment is the best way for leaders to learn, and discover ideas that will help them in what God has called them to.

If we are honest, many leaders wrestle with (in the 21st Century):

  • Not knowing their purpose.
  • Not seeing themselves as having anything to contribute to this life.
  • Thinking very little of themselves and not having access to the “secret sauce.”
  • Not knowing how they are wired and where they win.

So…….Whether it be non-profit work, church work, or a start-up small business there are unique things can be gathered from open dialogue.

Labor Day – #CarryATL

Today, officially starts the #carryATL campaign! However, we got a jumpstart on passing out carrying bags to Atlanta’s homeless this past Saturday. We encountered some very signifigant stories that confirmed the great need for resourcing our homeless friends with carrying bags.

We met a lady named Maria who has been homeless for a year! She was in the parking lot earlier that morning before we started to go out and pass out bags, and she made a statement that stuck with us the entrée day (and days to come), “A bag helps me because everything I own is in them…” She was basically saying that if she didn’t have anything to transport her items, she wouldn’t have anything.
