However don’t you dare think that we have forgotten 🙂
I (Stephanie) have been exceptionally busy doing stuff, more on that later! Because there are people in this world who need help now more then ever, especially around this time of year! I was reading a post over on Tanis the redneck mommy’s facebook page (you should read her blog, it’s nothing short of awesome!) which led me to baby on bored’s latest blog posting. I find that this time of year people are generally more generous (although we should be ALL year round not just around the holidays) and I was touched by what this woman was doing for this family.
When you have almost or nothing at all, the smallest things can have the largest amount of impact! In keeping with Jason’s dedication to help others (he always donated to charities when he could, especially those helping children) and with my job in a daycare, this really touched me. Please head on over to her blog (link posted above) to read this very touching story of one woman who is aiming to make someone’s Christmas a little brighter.
The purpose behind NAYOP is to help others. Even if it’s not directly related to our mission. That being said I’m making a donation on behalf of NAOYP in Jason’s honour because I think that he would have liked that very much.
One thing that never, ever dissapoints is hope. Hold onto it forever.
Happy holidays everyone from the Jason Cartwright Memorial Foundation
