One of the main goals we hold as a group: Give back to the community we care so much about, as often as possible. 
 
Our latest adventure in lending a hand involved collecting school supplies for an organization called Bright Futures. We reached out to all of you lovely people, with the request to help us make it an unforgettable day. And it was just that.  
 
As we walked into the drop-off room, with multiple bags of assorted school supplies, the air was filled with positive vibes.
 
One lady stood at the helm, guiding the sorting process. Once she saw us, and the amount of supplies we were donating, her hands quickly swept to her face, to cover her mouth. Appreciation poured through her eyes. And the only words that could escape her in that moment were, “Oh.. bless you”.
 
And then that slightly overwhelming sensation took hold. You know the one.. Where you feel your throat tighten, and your emotions bubble to the surface. And you just know, without a doubt, that you're making a difference.
 
Those are the moments we strive for most. There’s nothing in this world more satisfying than knowing you are where the change starts. You, as an individual, can be a catalyst for shaping the world we live in today. As a group of 9, pushing toward a common goal, we became champions for those in need. And, we have all of you to thank for it! You, our family, friends, business partners, and fellow community members, helped us make that glorious moment happen, and no amount of words can fully express how much we truly appreciate your contributions.
 
Rest easy, friends. We truly made a difference.
 
“Bright Futures is about cultural change and building a community where education is important and valued. Each and every student is priceless and it’s up to us to help them succeed. As a community, we are responsible for supporting Joplin children. It isn’t just up to the parents, the schools, the business community, faith based organizations, or human service agencies to respond to these needs.
