Be a hero in your community!
The worldwide community often proves its ability to work together to help those suffering from a major disaster. While this generosity is important, too often those suffering in our neighborhoods get overlooked. Whether it’s an elderly woman needing help carrying her groceries, or a family struggling to pay their bills, someone needs help right in our backyards. Unfortunately, they will not receive any without the benefit of the world stage.
The Odyssey Angels program wants to challenge you to use your unique creative problem-solving abilities to help some aspect of your community that would otherwise be overlooked. In return, one team will be selected to attend World Finals to present how it helped its community.
What can you do to help others?
Congratulations to the Blue Valley Odyssey Angels! The group will present its project at World Finals 2013. They were inspired by a neighborhood family with 17 adopted children and brainstormed ideas with them to help a local foster care agency. The Blue Valley angels then sought donations for materials and worked many hours to improve the lives of foster children in Overland Park, Kansas by making them blankets and toys. While these items may seem small, they meant a great deal to those often overlooked.
Thank you to all 2013 Odyssey Angels, you’ve done important work by helping your fellow community members. Be proud of your work and accomplishments!
