Having Fun Can Get You to A Lot

Today I was able to able to go volunteer at Feed My Starving Children, a non-profit agency that packs food together for children that are starving all around the world. Unlike most volunteer experiences, this one is really fun because the people who work their are passionate and the people you work along are having fun. You are able to be loud and encourage others while packing specially crafted meals for the kids around the world. What is also interesting is that they have children that have hodl their birthday party their and all the kids get to help other kids out during the party.

We spent a total of 2 hours there and an hour and a half of it we spent putting together these meals. In that time we put together almost 2 pallets worth of food which was enough to feed 34 children for a year. I really believe this shows the power of passion, good cause, and having fun can achieve.

Another interesting thing about the organization is that they are very fiscally responsible. They say that 94% of their donations goes towards the food program, which is higher than most non-profit organizations.

You Just Gotta Have Fun and Cheer Each Other On

Last night, legendary women’s basketball coach Pat Summit of the University of Tennessee entered the men’s game in a cheerleader uniform and sang “Rocky Top” to help cheer the men’s team on. Earlier in the year men’s coach, Bruce Pearl, cheered the women’s team on by painting his body orange.

Wouldn’t it be amazing to see your boss come in and cheer you on? (Would be funnier if he did it in a cheerleader uniform or painted orange) Some of the best leaders I have been around understood the importance of cheering their team on. In any journey or project there are bound to be obstacles, but with a leader near you to tell you, “you can do it,” or, “good job,” it will make it that much easier to persevere succeed.

As a future leader, my goal is to be someone people can come to when they need some encouragement. One of the biggest gifts I look foward to is seeing my team succeed and being able to tell them good job, or when my team is struggling I can tell them that they can do it and see them beat the odds.
