Tuesday, November 09, 2010, 0 Comments
I was able to catch up with an old friend a few days ago and was excited to hear she is pursuing her dream. I was inspired by her purpose and wanted to post todays blog featuring her. We support her mission and know her heart, she is a good friend of ours and we're excited to share her mission with you.
Chelsea and I love seeing people passionately pursuing their dreams because it means they are truly experiencing life the way it should be. Our hope is that you read Hilary's words today and you are inspired by her simple yet effective mission to help others. She is taking the steps of becoming a great leader and looking forward to seeing her fulfill the goal she has set out and resetting another goal to succeed at an even higher level in the future.
Hilary's long-term goal is to improve the human condition through doing what she loves most, working with kids. Hilary states, "the effects of poverty on children are so painful, and i'm hoping to learn more about how to address not only their basic needs, give them an opportunity for education, but i'm excited about finding ways to be creative and let them speak to the rest of the world. I think that's huge. bridging the gap between them and us. Kids in poverty need advocates, and that's exactly who i'm made to be."
I asked Hilary what pursing a dream meant to her and she continued to explain, "as far as dreams are concerned, i think i'm lucky to have learned already that you can't live without them. Developing my dream over the past several years has kept me healthy, happy, and has resulted in me flying by the seat of my pants. I wouldn't have it any other way! Being exposed to other dreamers, like the crew who started invisible children, have played a huge part in showing me what it is to dream. To take risks, to see what there is to see, to be willing to learn and change, to help people all the while, that's how i dream."
Hilary is working with a well established non-profit that helps create sustainable development in countries like Bolivia. She heard of the organization quite a few times in college and she really believes and trusts in their philosophy. Hilary's program will cost about $6500 and she is about halfway there. We encourage our friends and readers that if they feel led to give just $5 or more then they can do so here.
LIVE THE DREAM! ~ Blake & Chelsea
