Spreading Joy is officially 6 years old!
Spreading Joy Corporation was granted it’s official IRS Non Profit Status in August 2008!
I can’t believe just a few short years ago, that Spreading Joy Corporation was started out of a simple desire to make a difference.
I had always wanted to start a Non Profit and spend time helping others and make a difference. Not to get rich, not to have a 6 figure director salary….but simply to help and encourage others.
I remember starting the process and it was very overwhelming. With no funding for an attorney to help do the paperwork, I took a course and went from there.
God directed and provided every single step of the way and now….6 years later my life has been flooded with great joy as I remind everyone I come in contact with that there truly is no joy like spreading joy!
To those monthly supporters that donate month after month – thank you! Your support and generosity does so much to help encourage the discouraged.
To those who support our annual events and every other event we get involved with, thank you! You truly impact hearts by stepping up and making a difference.
To those who always so willingly volunteer and help to get things done, thank you! There is literally no way we could impact as many people as we do alone.
To those who always use their voices and social contacts to help spread the word, thank you! I know you feel as though it isn’t much, but trust me….every single voice helps and matters!
To those who always wrap us in prayer, thank you! We know how powerful prayer is and treasure those prayers! DAILY my heart is encouraged because someone reminds me that they are praying for Spreading Joy!
To Steve and the kids, thank you for all of your support, encouragement and just being there with me through all of it. For not minding when the living room is half covered in School Supplies or Christmas Toys. For the many many trips back and forth picking up things, organizing and helping with last minute details. Thanks for loving Spreading Joy.
To anyone that I’ve accidentally left out because I’m old and forgetful, thank you!
Y O U are Spreading Joy!
Thank you! I look forward to many more years of Spreading Joy to others with YOU all!
We DAILY take the time to spread joy and make a difference. Over the last 6 years anywhere from 1 act of joy for another person a day to 3 or 4.
May I remind you that spreading joy isn’t about how big your gift is, or how much you give, but it is just the fact that you are giving…doing and making a difference.
Every single act of joy has a limitless effect on the heart that receives it.
Have a desire to make a difference? Get our book Spreading Joy Daily and get started.
Here is a peek at our MAIN accomplishments. No way we could list everything we do to encourage others. Thank you for being such a huge part of all the individual souls we’ve encouraged over the years!
Have fun Spreading Joy and Making a difference!
