In April 2015 Nepal was struck with a massive earthquake and aftershocks lasting three weeks. For many people their lives and livelihoods would be changed forever. S. Van Dorn decided to use her $50 towards Lutheran World Relief and a program that taught people like Maya how to work the land and grow fruit trees to feed herself and trade with neighbors. It is an investment that will benefit the Maya and her community for years. How will you make a difference?
A. Woodruff realized that her $50 donation to the Rotary Club of San Miguel yearly fundraiser could help raise even more funds. Her $50 became 800 pesos and managed to bring in that much more and help the community that much more. How will you make a difference?
Small things matter, for one woman at City House in Plano that small thing was a tire. Her’s had been damaged a few months back and she had been driving around on her spare. When the Orsaks learned about this, they purchased her a new tire and now that woman can safely drive to her job and have one less thing to worry about. It may seem like a small thing, but the Orsaks saw someone in need and helped. How will you make a difference?
L. Colden recently made a $50 donation to Visiting Nurses, an organization that supports, promotes and advances nonprofit providers of community-based healthcare. Colden was reminded of her work with Meals on Wheels and how a visit from a stranger brought not only nutrition, but company. On a few occasions, Colden brought her grandchildren along on her route, which added a welcoming spark of happiness to the resident’s day. Colden's efforts made a big difference in people's lives.

When you run out of shampoo it’s a real inconvenience, but for some just having shampoo is a luxury. The Behrens decided to spend $100 on some canned goods and basic hygiene items and handed them to the homeless people in downtown Dallas.
The Behren’s felt a great joy handing out the items, but also realized that there is still a lot of work that needs to be done to help the homeless. One small gesture can make a positive impact. The Behrens plan on reaching out and helping again. How will you make a difference?
