Receiving while Giving Back

The post today is about finding ways to give back to your community. It doesn't take much and there are a lot of places that need your participation. Walk a dog at a shelter, go and visit with someone at a senior living complex, buy locally raised farm goods, help your neighbor clean up their yard or attend a fund raiser for your favorite charity. I guarantee you will receive so much more than you will ever give!

For anyone in the Minneapolis area, check out this event! All Proceeds go to help the Simpson Housing Services  who's mission is to "house, support and advocate for people experiencing homelessness." You give a little and receive something very cool!
The first ever Art 4 Shelter benefit for Simpson Housing Services is happening on May 5th, and we want you to be there!
Art 4 Shelter is an exhibit and sale of over 1000 original artworks on paper by emerging and established artists. Each 5"x7" piece will sell for $30. A list of participating artists is continually updated on the Art 4 Shelter website ( and will be posted the night of the event.
The works themselves will be signed only on the back. You may end up with a work by a famous artist, or be the first to discover an unknown talent. Either way, you will end up with art that you love while supporting Simpson Housing Services!
This event is free and open to the community. We look forward to seeing you there!
