So, a month ago I received a call from a familiar voice telling me that they knew what they wanted for their birthday this year. Birthdays are my favorite even when it isn't my own so when a friend calls to tell me what they want I listen. The more that I listened the more that I realized that this gift wasn't your usual request. My friend wanted a blog written and not necessarily about him. His only requirement was that the blog had to focus on the number 33, which is how old he turned on July 25th. My friend explained that the point of this request was to highlight friends who he felt were living in their purpose and to draw more attention to what those individuals are doing. For my friend's birthday he wanted to bring attention to and support others. So in honor of this selfless request I came up with a blog that would keep that same energy!
Here you will find 33 things split up into two different categories. Category 1 will be things I believe will help to move Memphis forward and category 2 will be nonprofits/organizations that I admire and love! You can click on the name of each organization to be directed to websites.
In addition to the organizations listed above here you'll find links with information about voting and other ways to help evoke change. There are so many organizations making a difference in this city please find your favorite and show them love! All of these are links and can be clicked on to go directly to websites.
