PROJECT WE WILL RISE - ADULT CHALLENGE

February 10, 2018

 

 

If you haven’t heard of Leading2Greater, we are a non-profit here in Fort White who are so very passionate about inspiring our students to live up to their God-given potentials, which we know with the right leadership, that they all can.  

 

On Instagram, we give our students positivity challenges each morning before school and reward them for their participation by having a weekly drawing for an iTunes or GooglePlay gift card. Our newest challenge, starting the week of February 19th, will be a contest to select 10 students for an envelope of $5.00 cash and a “We Rise by Lifting Others” card, so that they can complete a RAOK in our community, and share their experience with us.

 

We have had such an overwhelming amount of love and support from our community that we thought this was the perfect challenge to encourage everyone here locally, not just our students, to take part in.  This will be our first ever “Random Acts of Kindness Week” here in Fort White and we’re inviting you to take part in our challenge too!

 

With all of this being said, We would like to invite you to join us, as we pass on RAOK around Fort White, to bless unsuspecting people.  We’re challenging you to commit to one RAOK a day, during the week of February 26th - March 2nd and asking that you share your story with us.  

 

If you’re interested, click HERE and we’ll send you 5 FREE “We Rise by Lifting Others” cards to hand out during the week.  We’ll even cover the postage!  The cards have a spot on the back for you to write your own personal message, if you’d like.

 

We would love to hear about your experiences so please keep us posted on Facebook or Instagram by using the #hashtags found on the bottom of the cards.  The purpose in using these #hashtags is so we’ll be able to read all of the exciting stories from Fort White, from people blessing others and from others that were blessed by your kindness.  I’ll be posting actual screenshots of the hashtags on our facebook page (@leading2greater) for those of you who would like to follow.  It’s so exciting to be able to see both sides of the coin, on projects like this!

 

We absolutely can not wait to experience the kindness during the the last week of February and hope you will join us!
