Particularly today, as you listen, pay attention to:
Finding a way to give more to the community and the world is a way to discover more of your talents and gifts to the world.
Kevin's request on Giving Tuesday... and the surprise from others that came from that!
How Kevin and his family found the organization and how that changed his family's perspective on holiday giving.
Why Kevin talks about "The Kids" over again.
How the Clegg family began to make repeat visits regularly.
The timeline of the trips to make and travel looks something along the lines of...
How you can help even if you have no idea how to work with construction/industrial tools.
The main goal is to engage in the role of aunt/uncle or cousin of the kids in the orphanages to help.
The recommended age to bring your children to help and have a complete experience to serve and give in the projects. Kids connect can throughout the entire week.
The group of family friends, like-minded people, that becomes friends and has reunions.
How Paul Cook started the organization with a group in Haiti.
The story of one man helping over 1,200 kids.
The vision of the organization: Connecting kids with families. Back to their families, to a relative, adopted to another family, or giving them the best family experience within the orphanage to be able to have a good life afterward. And how they are bringing this vision to fruition.
Why money isn't always the solution to this situation.
Relationships are a critical component of the effort.
One of the challenges they face is: "Who can give what to help these kids?" Matching the right person with the right opportunity.
They are completing over 25 trips with over 1,000 volunteers this year.
Why Kevin is so lit up to talk about this.
How the energy he receives from giving in this capacity overflows into other areas of his life. He has seen this evidenced in his own life.
The passion that he has seen throughout this experience.
"Goodness happens when you're trying to give to others."
People want to learn more and are attracted to your energy when you have that passion.
"It's never exactly what you expect either."
"Connecting orphans with the givers who will help them thrive."
Why they work to make it affordable to give. It's about making sure to help families have this experience.
This is not a once-in-a-lifetime experience. We want you to come back again and again.
