PAY IT FORWARD!
OUR MISSION AT “1 BOY 4 CHANGE” IS TO BE AN AGENT AND CATALYST OF CHANGE – CHANGE IN THE WAY WE SEE OURSELVES, OUR COMMUNITY, AND OUR WORLD – BY “PAYING IT FORWARD”, RAISING AWARENESS, AND PROVIDING ASSISTANCE AND HOPE FOR INDIVIDUALS AND FAMILIES WITH DISABILITIES; AS WELL AS BY PROVIDING SUPPORT FOR THE DEDICATED INDIVIDUALS WHO PROTECT US AT HOME AND ABROAD.
Look around you!
Is there anything you see—in your community, in your school, in your church, in your life, in the world—that you’d like to change? Of course there is! Unfortunately, the world is run by adults, and most adults have stopped “BELIEVING” that they can do anything to change the world.
That’s why it’s time for kids to speak up. Kids aren’t afraid to think about how to make life in our world better—and kids “STILL BELIEVE” that they can make a difference.
Does one person make a difference? Let me ask you, did Christ? God so loved the world that He did something. He didn’t select a committee. He didn’t theorize how great it would be for someone to come to our rescue. He didn’t simply grieve over our waywardness and wring His hands in sorrow. He did something! And, in turn, the Son of God said to God the Father, “I will go.” He did something about it.
Have you noticed how suffering brings people together? Have you watched how people respond to disasters? Suffering pushes us out of our homes. It puts us in touch with our neighbors. Hardship forces us to grab hands with one another and pull up closer together.
In an overpopulated world, it’s easy to underestimate the significance of one. There are so many people who have so many gifts and skills who are already doing so many things that are so important, who needs me? What can I as one individual contribute to the overwhelming needs of our world, our church, etc.?
