Campaign OAAT in 2020
I really can’t believe it’s been 5 years since we sold our very first bracelet to fundraise for Sam. Who would have thought that selling bracelets to help my next door neighbor (Sam) who was battling leukemia would lead to helping other kids across the country.. and now other parts of the world? Over the years, I’ve had multiple people ask me how I feel about all of this, and the answer is always the same; “I’m just grateful for the opportunity.” Being able to be a part of these children’s journeys, and having them play such a huge role in mine, is something that’s hard to put into words. The perspective I’ve gained from this whole process is truly priceless. What was just a mere idea back in 2014 has blossomed into a lifestyle, a mindset, and an opportunity to spread so much good for so many people, thanks to all of our loyal supporters. One at a time was based off of the simple concept of helping one person at a time, and it’s been an awesome experience getting to witness it have such a snowball effect on people. There is so much to look forward to in 2020. While we will continue to take pride in our mission to sponsor one child at a time, we are so excited to continue building programs within our organization that empower more people, to help more people. As passionate as I am about helping these children, I’m just as passionate about sharing the perspective that’s attainable by getting involved and giving back. We look forward to innovating more volunteer opportunities, finding more ways to create normalcy for sick children during a time that’s anything but, and focusing on partnerships and collaborations that will help us help more kids in more places all over the world. Thank you all so much for being a part of this journey. I can’t wait to see how much good we can spread together this year!
