When we think about our purpose and direction in life, we have to stop and listen to that inner spirit that tells us we must be a bigger part of the picture and solution when taking care of the “least of these.” If we are not part of that solution then we are definitely part of the problem or indifferent to the need. When we began our mission with Favorite Things For A CAUSE in 2007, we were inspired by and became a part of the multitude of people who stepped up to the plate to make a difference, even if it was in their own back yards.

There is a classic line in a song that touched so many of us in 1985, that reminds us of our calling when we pay attention: “There comes a time, when we heed a certain call…” It’s from the song “We Are the World” that bridged an array of stars who checked their egos at the door for a bigger cause. We witnessed some amazing and incredible star-studded talent (Quincy Jones, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Kenny Rogers, Kenny Loggins, Dionne Warick, Paul Simon, Diana Ross, Tina Turner, Lionel Ritchie, James Ingram, Ray Charles, Billy Joel, etc) who came together to help bridge a nation and global community, by recognizing a humanistic need to make choices that will save generations of people around the world.

As we look ahead to this leap year, we will take a leap of faith to heed that certain call and to continue making this world a better place for you and me! Peace & Blessings everyone! Happy New Year!
