Do you have a word for 2017? I do. It’s GRACE.
Adding two teenage boys to an already established household of 6 (only just 5 1/2 months ago), we have realized, provides quite a few challenges and requires a great big dose of patience and GRACE.

Do Something

We’re kicking off 2016 with the mentality that we can all DO SOMETHING to make the world a better place. I mean, we’re all world-changers, right? It’s really a matter of putting one foot in front of the other and maybe putting some thought into our actions and just DOING it.

Purchase with Purpose & Why It Matters

What’s the big deal?

What does it matter?

The Best Kind of Giving

Are you ready for the Christmas season? Because we are! We know this is a crazy season for you (and for us too!), but we can’t help but wiggle our tails in anticipation for all the giving opportunities before us.

What Makes a World Changer?

“Be the change.”
“Make good things happen.”
“One person can do so much.”
“She believed she could so she did…”
“You have the power to change the world.”
“Be the change you wish to see in the world.”
“If you can’t feed one hundred, if you can’t feed fifty, if you can’t feed ten, FEED ONE.”
We see these quotes all over the internet, in the books we read and on our apparel (check out our shop for some inspiration). We are constantly encouraging our friends to “make a difference” and often times feel like we aren’t “doing enough.” We see all the big organizations and celebrities doing their part and we wonder how ours could ever matter.

But it does. Your part matters…

A Peek Into Christmas for Haiti

Christmas for Haiti was a big success and could not have happened without you.  Charles Seraphin, the team leader for the program, wanted to make sure to thank you all, for not only helping, but for entirely making this Christmas program possible. Because of YOU, who made cash donations or who purchased One Mission products, choosing 40% of your purchase to go towards ‘Christmas for Haiti’, hundreds of Haitian people were able to learn about the birth of Jesus, eat [...]

Announcing the Twelve Days of Giving

This time of year is full of hustle and bustle.  It’s hard to believe it’s Thanksgiving week already!  And one thing I’ll never understand is how we go from Thanksgiving (a day that’s all about family, peace, gratitude, and generosity) to Black Friday (a day smothered in hyper-consumerism, consumption, and a total free-for-all).  And then somewhere along the way, Cyber Monday became quite the big deal too.  Did you know a whole new movement is gaining momentum?  (Actually, it’s a [...]
