Back in late September of 2013 I
was having a crappy day when I received an email that lifted my spirits. Someone
that I know took a minute of their time to do something that probably would
seem small and trivial to most, but could result in a positive outcome. It got
me thing about an article that an old high school friend had recently wrote;
“Stand Up For Something, Staying Good At Life”. The major part of the article
is “Assistance comes in many forms. Volunteer in
your community. Help by giving someone a good referral. Put in a good word for
someone. Hold open a door for someone. Make a donation. Be active in your
community. Smile at someone.” So I came up with this idea for the month, Helptoberfest and for
the month of October I posted about different charities, events and
inspirational quotes. I skipped last year for whatever reason, but this year I
want to expand upon this idea. For the month of October I will donate 15% of
sales to charities and organizations that are environmentally and/or outdoor
focused. I’ll donate to five different groups, one will be highlighted for a
six day period. If you are involved with or know of one that you would like to
see featured let me know. Aina is a very small business, it won’t be a lot of
coin, but every bit helps.
this reminds you to “Stay Good At Life”.
