This month, we’re featuring a very special charity called Together Rising. It was founded by Glennon Melton Doyle—the brains, wit, and heart behind the popular mom blog, Momastery. Together Rising has demonstrated the power of giving by asking its community of fellow moms to help lift women in need.
“We do something called a Love Flash Mob. It is a celebration of life and love and hope that we Monkees hold once in a blue moon. We come together here to support a Sister—a Sister who might need a reminder that she is loved and watched over. In short, we make magic happen, baby.”
They do it by showing up, giving what they can, and trusting that the money raised is the least of the miracles that result.
Take a look at the “LOVE FLASH MOB RULES” from TogetherRising.org:
We absolutely love this idea—people coming together, with small gifts, to make a huge impact on the lives of people in need. Together Rising works in ways big and small—from helping mothers with needs for their children to partnering to rehabilitate special needs schools. All giving centers around one simple idea—that in circling around each other to meet needs, we rise together.
Here are some stories from their Love Flash Mobs:
I’m linking to a bunch of articles in this post, because all these stories will make your day a little brighter. But I urge you to read the story about the Heartline Maternity Center in Haiti…and this one about the Syrian refugees.
We have less than one week left in our campaign for Together Rising. Through the end of January, we’re donating 10% of all sales (not just profits) to this amazing organization, and I hope you’ll join us. Also, please be sure to follow Momastery on social media so you can participate in the Love Flash Mobs in the future. Meanwhile, #standwithlove.
