A healthy mind is as important as a healthy body - and literacy is essential to good
I was inspired by a story I heard at the Max International Convention this past September.
Max Company President Craig Case told us about a group of homeless children who had
been discovered living under a highway in Salt Lake City.
The children had nothing – not even shoes. They soon began receiving visits by a
kind individual who knew how important it was for these children to learn to read.
Through a Max company initiative called “ Max Gives Back”, these children now have
a school house, clothing and shoes.
As a result, I have developed my own “Max Family Gives Back” Book Donation Program.
As a Mom, I know how important it is for everyone, especially children, to read.
I have been reading to my own children since they were born. It is one of the most
important gifts that I have been able to give them and I want to continue giving
the gift of literacy to others. I can do this by bringing our community together
to provide books for those who do not have any.
As a mother and a business owner, I firmly believe that I can make a significant
contribution to the future of the youngest members of our society, our children .
By teaching my own children and those around me the importance of giving, I will
truly be doing God’s work. Life is not about taking. It is about giving.
