A.Levesque # 54 - Big Life Decisions

  Matthew 18:20 Man, don't we all wish we could predict what was going to happen next week much less a year out.  Can you imagine that knowledge?  Do you think it would make you work harder or motivate yourself more. Live the life you want by making it.  Sometimes we think we have it all figured out and here comes God and his will.  What is right to do and actually be compassionate to others. How angry are you?  Compassion How unforgiving are you? Compassion Spending ten minutes with someone's problems and you would want yours back in a heart beat.  A day in another's shoes would put your life in perspective. We all fall short. We all are capable of pulling ourselves up. Make sure to be living the life you were meant to and quit worrying about the rest of it.  Everything works out. Love your faces. ❤️A.Levesque 

A.Levesque #17 - Friends Old, New & Social U

Just as I promised, I have been doing my homework...

Social "U"

Great group of people.  Tomorrow marks their end of the summer picnic.  Not that the events are over, but the season is drawing an end.  Friends of friends and family are all having a wonderful time (trust me I looked through all their pictures).  Tomorrow's location is set Caro, MI at the Darbee Park.

This is the organization
Social "U" is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that was specifically created to provide a social outlet for adults with intellectual/developmental disabilities once they have aged out of the educational system.  Our organization is filling a void for these individuals by providing a social outlet in a non-judgemental, safe group of their peers.  It gives them a chance to connect with old friends and make new friends.
Since their official first meeting in May of  2015, their attendance has almost tripled.  Each month has a themed meeting at different locations throughout Tuscola County Michigan.  These meetings have open floor time and all kinds of things to help fill that void that has been created by aging out of the educational system.  They have even adopted a highway.  This is a great example of people coming together and doing things for the better good.

They do have a few links I want to share to help them out a bit.

First, they have a t-shirt link.  OMG, THEY ARE ONLY $5...

Second, they do have a donation link as well.

However, these ladies are determined and have this message onsite:
Listed below are just a few of the many items we could use for our meetings and outings....
  1. Craft items - construction paper, silk flowers, paints, beads, foam blocks
  1. Art items - paint, crayons, paper, markers
  1. Games - board games, outside games, Wii, Wii games and controllers
  1. Technology - computer, printer, computer ink 
  1. Group items - t-shirts, name tags, hats
  1. Sponsors - we would love to have sponsors to help with the cost of community outings
Just a little inside information, the buy ticket link.  It is used for reservation purposes.  The group asks for a $2 donation only if you can afford it when you get to the party.  They will not turn you away if you cannot pay.

Helping people help people makes us happier people.  Can you literally say that five times?  Share with your friends.  You never know who might actually need this program.  If it gets to just one person who needs it, it counts.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read tonights' feature.  I will be actively looking for more groups and more people to showcase.  These people need a pat on the back because what they are doing really does matter.

Thank you Social U for doing what you do.  We appreciate your work.

Love You.
