LIFE of Life

You may not have heard of LIFE Leadership yet but I'm sure that you soon will. This amazing company has inspired us to be the change we want to see in the world. That we should reach out to the widows and orphans (James 1:27); those women who are alone in this world and the children who don't have a stable two parent family. Also that we help improve the literacy rate in our country like the employees at corporate headquarters are doing.

Upon hearing Chris Swanson's talk about the things he's seen, we knew we had to do something for the women and children in our area. We contacted Avail in Antigo, WI and asked them if we could help. They agreed.

We chose to do a car wash to raise funds for whatever they currently need. We also wanted to do somehting that our kids could participate in. That's one of the beautiful things about this company' they want to teach this next generation what we should have been taught or wifh we would have learned at a much younger age. Showing our kids the selfless example of washing 32 cars and trucks and getting nothing out of it for ourselves. Well...we did reward everyone with an ice cream from McDonald's after but that came out of our own pocket.

Four hours + 32 cars + 8 adults + 8 kids + soap, buckets, sponges, water + smiles + $290.00 for Avail. We magnet bombed anyone that gave more than our asking price. We had two come through because the automatic car wash didn't get their car clean. We had one gentleman bring through three of his vehicles. The Antigo County Store let us use their water and parking lot. The Family Dollar let us use their restrooms (kids go often).

When we delivered the money to Avail, they were very thankful and very interested in LIFE Leadership and what inspired us to do this. Keep your eyes out for us coming to a town near you or join us in our efforts and become part of the solution.
