Helping Others Feels Good; Won’t You Give It A Try?   7 comments

My family feeds the homeless in our downtown area every Sunday.  My dad grills burgers or dogs, sometimes my mom will roast a ton of beef and make barbecue sandwiches.  My brother and I stuff the bags full of chips and cookies and fill cooler full of ice cold bottled water.  Together we all load the coolers with the food and drinks and head downtown.  They have come to know our SUV when we drive down to “the wall”, named after the wall of people we encounter there each Sunday.  It feels good to help them and reminds me that each of us are maybe a step away from being in the spot at sometime in our life. 

My need of help isn’t in the way of food but rather your vote.  I read an interesting article that stated:

“Let me let you in on a little social media secret…Helping others is the key and any work you put in to help others will come back to help you in the long run 10 times over. The beauty in this day and age is that it is so easy to help others through social media now. You just have to want to.”

I’m networking to get help…

Hi! My name is Hallie and I have entered a Savvy Magazine photo shoot contest. I know you don’t know me but the winners are chosen by the public and if the public doesn’t know they need to vote…well, you guessed it, no one votes! Could you take a moment and look at my photos and decide if you would vote for me or not?

There are over 1000 of us trying to get to those top ten positions.  If you don’t think I am top ten material scroll through the small icons to the right of mine and pick one of those ladies!  One little click of your finger can help make somebodies dream a reality!   You can vote once a day, everyday until January 1st!  Thank You!

And special thanks to datechguy  at for voting for me and linking me!!!!  And  big  thank you to  and has helped me out too!
