FIRST TEN POUND CHARITY THIS MONDAY 10-7-2013

This is a re-post of one of my earliest posts from last July when I first started this blog.  I wanted to re-post it so all the information about the charity I am volunteering with for my first ten pound weight loss is available. I have made my first ten pound goal a reality a few weeks ago and I am currently at 15 pounds.  

On Monday 10-7-2013 I, along with Mike my trainer and friend, his girlfriend Maria, and my friend Courtney will be joining the Monday Night Mission to help feed the hungry at Skid Row in Los Angeles CA. I am very happy and humbled to be able to give a little of myself to such a wonderful cause. 

I will be writing more about the experience of volunteering with The Monday Night Mission, and Seasons 52’s role in donating food for the cause in future posts. I am grateful for the help of everyone involved, and the support I have been receiving. I could not go this alone. I have a long way to go to my final weight loss goal but it feels so amazing to be making strides and seeing the results as I continue on with my journey. This is the first of many charities to come, as I hope to lose at least 50 pounds total. Love and light to all.

Man does not weave this web of life. He is merely a strand of it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.

I have chosen my organization I intend to sponsor when I get to my ten pound goal. The Monday Night Mission has really made an impact on me. I follow their Facebook page and the selfless kind acts they do for the residents at Skid Row in Los Angeles are awe inspiring to me. I have wanted to get involved for some time, so picking their wonderful cause is a natural choice for me. Here is some information on wonderful things they do to make a difference in the world. I am humbled by all that they do and  I wish to personally thank Mel at the Monday Night Mission.


I am going to volunteer my time and donate food. I work at Seasons 52 in Century City CA and they have offered to help me by donating food as well. I will be writing a post about them soon. I have friends who wish to join me and get involved. It will be an  honor to serve the residents of Skid Row. I am getting healthy and joining in with the best people of Los Angeles to make a difference, what a win win. 

You must be the change you wish to see in the world.
