Farmworker Appreciation Day

Written by Grace Williams    on July 27, 2022    in
“I have met many, many farmworkers and friends who love justice and who are willing to sacrifice for what is right. They have a quality about them that reminds me of the beatitudes. They are living examples that Jesus’ promise is true: they have been hungry and thirsty for righteousness and they have been satisfied. They are determined, patient people who believe in life and who give strength to others.” - Cesar Chavez

“No one has ever become poor by giving.” - Anne Frank

July 15th is National Give Something Away Day! There are several action points you can take on this day. SHARE Detroit’s four pillars of giving are: donating money, volunteering time, attending an event, and shopping for items from nonprofit wish lists. Today is the perfect day to use the SHARE website to look for a new nonprofit to support, explore volunteer opportunities, and explore wish lists!

Happy Fourth of July!

“We must be free not because we claim freedom, but because we practice it.” — William Faulkner

As we gather for this long weekend to celebrate the anniversary of our nation’s independence, let us use this time to reflect on what America means to ourselves and what it could mean for others. Need does not get a vacation so just as we want to gather and enjoy the company of our friends and family, it is important to remember those who may have a more complicated relationship to Independence Day or are otherwise requiring help this holiday.

Happy Earth Day!
