Godt Nytt År from Ålesund, Norway where Marile, the kids and I celebrated the New Year with warm Norwegian friends and shared a special prayer — May God Bless you and your family with prosperity, good health, and happiness in 2019 and always. Thank you for your friendship and continued support in helping make 2019 …
This passage inspired Marile and me to write this #ThankfulThurday — dedicated to the laborers — the volunteers, leaders, and professionals tirelessly working to help families and children in need — in our community and around the world. The needs are many — and, so we thank you for stepping up and pray others will do likewise and give of their time, talents, and treasure — to those in need. In your honor, here are but a few of those profound acts of kindness, caring and generosity through-out 2018:
Marile and I firmly believe that “For it is in giving that we receive”.
Thus, our 2018 year-end #ThankfulThursday, invites you to reflect with us on the many lives we have helped change by supporting the caring and compassionate charitable organizations in our South Florida community, nation, and the world.
Thanks to your generous contributions of your time, talent and treasure, the lives of many families and kids have been changed. Moreover, each woman, man and child you helped now knows that you believe in them — empowering to believe in themselves and in a better future.
We invite you to meet Samantha, Johandra, and other Boys & Girls Club of Miami-Dade — see for yourself their heartwarming stories and how their lives you have transformed.
Last year, our friends at The Miami Foundation’s Give Miami Day raised $10.1 million in support of 700 local charities.
Today the movement is in full swing.
Marile, the kids and our parents are once again donating and asking you–our friends, clients and colleagues–to help our community and those in need.
In honor of the our NEXT 30 years of service–our Lopez family will be making a special donation to 30 charities.
