Living Life On Purpose

Young People Making a Difference

Dear Readers,

I've had the honor of interviewing several young people on my radio program, Voice For Truth on www.VoiceAmerica.com  who are making such a difference in the world. 

Joshua's Heart Foundation 
A few years ago, I heard about Joshua, who at 4 years of age saw a homeless man and asked his mother about him. When he understood the man's situation, he insisted on giving the man the $ 20 he had just received for his birthday.  
From that point on there was no stopping him reaching out and making a difference.  He started his own non-profit at the age of 5, www.JoshuasHeartFoundation.com 




Now some 12 years later the non-profit has a Junior Advisory Board of some 80 young people ages 9 - 18, and 12,500 you volunteers which are known as elves.  


Elena, is another such person.  She is one of the original Junior Advisory Board members of Joshua's Heart Foundation (JHF).  She has gotten over 650 families to volunteer, organizes toy drives every December,  as well as travels to Tanzania to do community service.  




She founded a club at her school called Hopefull Club which strives to help fight hunger in the community by providing the homeless in her community with personal items and food, as well as emotional support.  Now she is also collecting items for Mexico, seeing that the earthquakes there have created such a need. 



Colin, also with JoshuaHeartFoundation.com is dedicated to do all he can to make sure every person has enough food to eat. Recently, he developed a hydroponic garden at this school which has helped to provide fresh herbs and vegetables to families in need.  



 He is also with www.JoshuaHeartFoundation.com and is President of the Palm Beach Region and Found and Chair of the Junior Advisory Board. 

As I talk with these young people I've learned that they have this huge network of young people many such a difference.  What an amazing example they set for their peers.  

William C. Menninger
 
Many years ago I was introduced to a small book by William Menninger, which encouraged individuals to have something in their life that brought them meaning.  William, along with his brother Karl and their father, co-founded The Menninger Foundation, which is an internationally known center for treatment of behavioral disorders. 

William felt that individuals who had found a meaningful way of helping others, were able to more easily have good mental health.  For him, Boy Scouts was his way of making a difference in his life. 

Young People Struggling in Life 
Often I see young people struggling in their lives, not being accepted by their peers, or just from low self-esteem.  I do believe that William Menninger's idea of having something to do, which is bigger than one's self, which supports others in a positive way could be the answer for such young folks. 

Some years ago, I decided to help out at the local homeless shelter during the holidays.  I offered to help on Thanksgiving Day.  It was so rewarding.  People came together, all dressed in their best and shared conversation, stories and good food.  You could not tell who were the helpers and who were the ones in need. Everyone was just an individual, sharing time together. It was an experience I'll always remember.    

If you want to support these young people or if you want to know how you can be part of their work, visit: www.JoshuasHeartFoundation.com

With much gratitude for the wonderful work these young people are doing, 
sharon
