COMMUNITY SERVICE RECAP: VIP 20 - COLUMBUS

We, Team 20/20 Vision, the 20th class of Next Level Trainings’ Vision Impact Program (VIP) in Columbus, were charged with creating an impactful community service project. Our decision as a team was to stand in support of creating future leaders of tomorrow through an organization called Seeds of Caring. With a team of only 40 individuals, we boldly declared to raise $88,000 in 21 days. We reached out to corporations, local businesses, family, and friends to support this cause. Our campaign reached all across the country, as far as Washington State and even Europe. No matter our location, we pushed until the very last second of our campaign.

The events are being held as a part of a 24-day-long fundraising campaign by Next Level Trainings’ current leadership class. Seeds of Caring empowers kids to create a kinder community with their hearts, hands, and minds. We do this by designing meaningful opportunities for kids to engage in service, social action, and community-building. As kids learn about hunger in our community, make blankets for hospitalized children, or share conversation with seniors, they build confidence in their ability to contribute. In the end, we all benefit: our kids develop a heart for service, our families are united by a common purpose, and our community becomes a more compassionate place to live, work, and grow.

Want to be a celebrity? Be a celebration!

The holidays are a special time of year.  We slow down and make time to see family we don’t see regularly. People strive to be kind and generous. We break out the fine china, buy gifts for the ones we love, splurge on feasts, and don our best holiday sweaters to mark the occasion.  What if you lived today, and every day, as if in the spirit of celebration?
