Giving back just feels so good.
The inaugural run of #Charituesdays was a complete success! We had more than 80 shares on Facebook and a heaping handful of tweets. As a result, Angels’ Place of Southfield will be receiving a brand-new twin mattress set for one of its residents.
A quick recap of #Charituesdays:
We are selecting one charity bi-weekly from our 2014 Giving Guide and donating an item from its wish list upon receipt of 50+ shares of our Facebook post. Our first charitable organization, Angels’ Place, is a non-profit organization that provides homes and services to persons with developmental disabilities.
Who’s the donation going to?
Not only do we know our donation is going to a very worthwhile and genuine organization, we are fortunate enough to know exactly to whom the mattress set is going.
Our friends at Angels’ Place told us one of its 15-year residents, Jack, will be receiving the mattress. He is a kind-hearted fellow who loves his housemates and cares deeply about the well-being of others. He’s even learning sign language so he can communicate with one of his housemates who is deaf. On top of that, Jack is a fan of old movies and Star Trek with a knack for cooking (especially apple crisp). His old mattress has been worn ragged, but with this new mattress, he will have the best spot in the house to watch Spock, Kirk and the rest of the crew – we just hope he shares some of his famed dessert.
As a non-profit in charge of 20 different homes across Southeast Michigan, Angels’ Place is always looking for volunteers and donations, so don’t hesitate to pitch in! Visit www.angelsplace.com or call (248) 350-2203 for more information. You can always talk with us on Facebook and Twitter, too, for more information.
