You've probably been overwhelmed with online "deals" over the past week and a handful of "Giving Tuesday" options today. Everyone has a cause and an ask, but for whatever it's worth I thought I'd share a handful of organizations that mean something to me personally and that I've seen amazing work come from.
Love Does. I have always been thankful for the work that Bob, Debs, and company take part in. By providing a safe and fun environment for kids to learn in, they create future leaders who break cycles of poverty, restore hope in their communities, and spread love wherever they go.
Bro-Am Foundation. Not only are the guys some of the best guys you'll ever know, but their heart to make a difference in the lives of deserving yet underprivileged youth is so awesome.
PastorServe. PastorServe is a ministry I know, trust and personally support. This year, PastorServe is dedicating Giving Tuesday to serving Haitian Pastors impacted by Hurricane Matthew. Go to their website to find out how you can help Haitian Pastors by giving Haitian pastor couples an experience they will always remember.
Young Life. Through a handful of really important people in my life, I have learned from multiple sources how important Young Life is to introducing people to Jesus.
Show Hope. I love how Show Hope paints the message of the gospel with the story of adoption.
Preemptive Love. These people are going to really hard places and loving people anyway, regardless of circumstance.
Nations Foundation. I am a new Nations super fan. On top of donating, buy the journal!
Charity Water. I really appreciate what Charity: Water's attention to detail and care on the mission of providing clean water to people who need it on a massive scale.
We made it back after a fantastic month in Brooklyn. So much good there: good people, good food, good culture. We loved it.
- Congrats to Nick for the amazing film and the Vimeo Staff Pick:
Finished Think Like a Freak thanks to some extended subway reading time. I'd highly recommend it just to help you think about how to be asking the right questions.
Air Jordan's move honoring Derek Jeter here is classy:
- There have been no waves here recently, but this photo got me excited for the next time there are. (Maybe today?)
Ran across this C.S. Lewis quote this week which I've loved! "Before we can be cured, we must want to be cured." You feel that?!
I am pretty happy about Baylor being ranked Number 5 in the country. SIC 'EM!
Really intrigued by this film, Inside Llewyn Davis.
As time progresses and work starts multiplying and becomes weightier, the importance of personal projects is one of the keys to sanity. This Dana Tanamachi project captured by Andrew Shepherd is awesome. (And I am releasing a personal project of my own with Andrew's help (among others) soon ... yay.)
If you didn't get a chance to yet, take a look at Austin's iPhone 5S Review after taking it to Patagonia! (And check out that spiffy new site!)
What do you think about this article: "The New Retirement Age is Thirty"?
Here is a good reminder for the week ahead: "God never hurries. There are no deadlines against which He must work. Only to know this is to quiet our spirits and relax our nerves." -A.W. Tozer, The Pursuit of God
Denison Witmer has a new record out! Support good music.
Another great piece from Seth Godin: "What does your brand stand for?"
Having grown up at church potlucks, Jon Acuff's potluck menu is really funny and he completely nailed it.
Lacey and I had our first AirBNB booking experience this week for a place in Paris. Excited to see it work.
I love what Zambikes is doing.
Now that I have cleared out about 5,000 photos off my phone, I finally have room to play around with some photo editing and not worry about space on my phone. I have really been excited about Mextures and the new VSCO. Here's one of my first edits using Mextures:
