In the author notes on this book, background is provided for the Great Fire of 1881 and the involvement of the Red Cross. I find it inspiring that people put together organizations and groups like the Red Cross for the purpose of helping out others. Isn’t it amazing what can be accomplished when we work together?

  1. The organization or group of people that I am inspired by who help others, that would be the Relief Society ladies from my church. They have helped me and others so many times, including recently after I had knee surgery. Those ladies brought in meals so I wouldn’t have to cook for a few days afterwards. I love my Sisters in Christ. They inspire me to help others and to be more Christlike. Thanks for the giveaway and good luck everyone.

  2. A group called.. sewing for babies.. They make sleepers and quilts for new mothers in need 🙂

  3. Habitat for Humanity. That they build homes for those in need. Also, that is something I would like to do

  4. I don’t remember what the group is called at the moment. Just learned about them. But there is a group here where I live that gives out pallets of mostly vegetables and some fruits every now and again. Apparently people from all over the city can come and get it and people start lining up hours before it starts in hopes of getting some of the food pallets. I think that is great!

  5. My comment is the same as Debbie’s. I don’t live near my family, so my Relief Society sisters and ward family (local congregation) have helped me out in ways that I could never repay them. When my husband was badly injured last year, they stepped in and took my daughter for as many hours or days as I needed when I was at the hospital. They picked her up from school, they brought us dinner, visited us often throughout my husband’s 3-month hospital stay, and most of all, they were our friends. I hate asking for help from people, so this has been such a growing period for me. I’ve been learning how to both give and receive service.

    1. I did not know about this group until you and Debbie listed them here. I am definitely checking them out. Thanks for sharing Karen. 🙂

  6. Two organizations that I am very fond of are Compassion International and Samaritan’s Purse. Compassion works with children and families all over the world. You can sponsor a child for $38 a month. The best part is that the children have ongoing opportunities to learn about Jesus Christ. Samaritan’s Purse is also involved internationally. I’m sure everyone knows about their Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes. They also do much more in the way of humanitarian work and evangelizing. Both organizations have catalogs where you can choose items to gift to children and families in need. Last year at Christmas, rather than buying presents for my 9 grandchildren, I gave them each $50 to “spend” by choosing items from the catalogs. They could either pool the money or spend it on less expensive options. They had a great time choosing such things as chickens, dental care, malaria net, etc.

    1. That is so neat Kay. Our family participates in the Operation Christmas Child every year and we love imagining the reactions of those children who will receive the boxes. Thanks for commenting. 🙂

  7. Our church purchased an older home that a large group of volunteers worked to fix it up and it turned out beautiful. A single mom with 4 children, all girls under the age of3 1/2. An awesome sight to see!

  8. We have a very small group at church who opened up a Christian Share Center. Everything is free we have some clothes and a little bit of food. We also post a list of items that people are needing and another list of things people would like to give away. Wonderful for our small town.

    1. Oh that does sound wonderful Jan! I love to hear about the churches taking care of people. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

  9. I love helping with Operation Christmas at our church. We did over 500 boxes last year.

    1. 500 boxes? Wow! Just think of all those children who were blessed by that Lucy! Thanks for sharing. 🙂

  10. I’m inspired by Fostering Great Ideas. Among other things, they find mentors for teens in foster care. (link removed by admin)

  11. I volunteer at SHARE, which is the local food bank. We also have clothes and some small household items for those in need.

    1. I don’t think I have heard of that group Caryl. That is awesome that you are able to volunteer your time to them. I will have to check them out. 🙂

  12. Compassion International and Habitat for Humanity are two organizations that are and inspiration to me.

  13. I ,too, find the Red Cross to be a valuable asset in times of disasters. How many volunteers come out to the aid of victims of all sorts, even just passing out food or water! They are an amazing organization & very inspirational 🙂

    Thanks for the giveaway of Jody’s book, it’s on my very long TBR list!!

  14. I am inspired by the people who work with the children at Saint Jude’s Hospital. They do such good work with children with cancer.

  15. Saint Jude’s Hospital. I do a small donation monthly to them. I wish I could do more. Also at the hospital where our daughter was born. There is a group of ladies that makes gowns and blankets for angel babies.

  16. On a large scale, I have always admired St. Jude Children’s Hospital and I do contribute to their pleas for help. Locally, our church has recently become a “station” for Feed God’s Pantry and it is truly amazing to see the tremendous need. People who are so proud and who have always been the providers have now been cast into the role of needing help. It is both heartbreaking and uplifting to be able to provide this service.

  17. There are so many groups that do great things – to help so many! One that has come to my area is Code Purple – this is a group that helps the homeless with shelters (whether in a church or hoping to have a dedicated building) & food. Right now they are only open in low temps, high temps or really bad weather. They hope to have a dedicated building to be open all year round.
