Teapot Tuesday will be back next week…..
September 1st! How can that possibly be? It is and of course on It’s Just Life I get all excited because it is the day I tally up the comments for the previous month and reveal our donation amount to the selected charity for the month. In August I was thrilled to find Stefan Youngblood who has an amazing ministry and vision in Raleigh, NC. His GoFundMe campaign caught my eye. His goal is to provide bus passes and personalized birthday songs to the homeless folks in the area and it is an amazing ministry. To read more please click here to read more of my interview with Stefan.
The way Comments for a Cause works is very simple. You read my posts during the month and leave a comment. At the end of the month I count up all of the comments and Chris and I make a donation of 50 cents for each and every comment made during the month on any post to the featured charity. This month we will be making a donation of $189 to help fund Stefan’s GoFundMe project. Thank you to each and every one of you. Taking time to stop by and read and most importantly, comment, makes this work and I have been blessed by not only your words but your dedication to leaving comments. Not everyone has the kind of feedback on their blog like I do and I am so very grateful.
Many of you know that my mom lives in a wonderful United Methodist retirement community in Sebring, Ohio called Copeland Oaks. It is a wonderful place with a lot of great amenities. My mom currently lives in her own “villa” and has all the comforts of having her own home. It is a beautiful campus and also has apartments, assisted living facilities, a memory care unit and a nursing care facility. We have been so happy that she has been able to call Copeland Oaks home for about 15 years.
One of the things that I love the most about Copeland Oaks is the care that they give each and every resident. They really do care about each person who is a part of their community and the staff is always happy to provide whatever is needed to help both the residents and their families. They have a charitable part of their organization which is called The Oaks Foundation. The Oaks Foundation is a non-profit organization operating in covenant with the United Methodist Church, encouraging philanthropy and Christian stewardship to benefit the residents of Copeland Oaks and Crandall Medical Center. My mom is a big supporter of the Copeland Life Care program which provides financial support to residents whose financial resources are no longer adequate to cover the costs of their care. Once there the resident can always stay there regardless of their financial situation because people give to this fund so faithfully. It seems appropriate to feature the Copeland Life Care program as the recipient of my September Comments for a Cause.
Knowing that my mom is in a safe environment where there are a lot of activities and that she is surrounded by people who care about her makes it so much easier for me to handle not living close to her. I truly believe that she is living in the most wonderful place that she could be living. So this month help me show a little love to Copeland Oaks and comment often. Each comment made will be 50 cents in donation to the Life Care Program. As always, thank you for your continued support of Comments for a Cause.
