Many foundations and their causes can be inspirational. Many individuals and groups of people do things to help and support others. There are many foundations and causes that people learn about, are exposed to, and end up supporting because of where they work.
I know when I was teaching we supported children with programs like Blessings in a Backpack, families by selling items and hosting Make-A-Wish volleyball tournaments, and causes. I walked in Susan G. Komen’s 3 Day and had financial support from co-workers. After my accident, co-workers, families, and a local eatery helped my family with a benefit. I am grateful for all the help my family received, a lot of this happened because of co-workers. Teachers may encounter more of this type of thing than some professions, however many professions support causes and co-workers.
Another example of work related support is the Engine 40 Foundation. As I’ve written about before, fire fighters themselves are inspirational. Engine 40 Foundation in Detroit, Michigan is inspirational and works to support the community in which they work. One of the things they do every year is to have a Back to School Rally to help area children have more of what they need for school. Many fire departments help causes, whether they have charity baseball games or have a non-profit foundation, it can only add to reasons why fire fighters are inspirational.
Whatever your profession, it seems there is not a lack of ways to help others. So no matter if it’s buying your favorite Girl Scout cookies from a co-worker’s daughter or Boy Scout popcorn from their son, realize you are being inspirational by helping and supporting others.
Be inspired! Have a bright day!
