Norfolk nonprofit on mission to send 10,000 handwritten notes of encouragement

I chose to use this blog because I believe that it is very encouraging and similar to what I do at my own nonprofit organization, IMAA. The program I organize, the Meadow Park Initiative, strives to better the community and living quality of those in low-income public housing. It was heartwarming to see what they did for their community and one day I strive to make a difference like this.

I found this blog to be very interesting because the goal of these people making the compassion cards was to create a more positive environment. They all had a common goal of making at least one person’s day a little bit better. Ever since I was young, I have always been community oriented. So, seeing people do something that was so simple but moving really inspired me.

In conclusion, many people struggle daily but small acts of kindness can change anyone mood in a matter of seconds. The work these people put in to making and sending these cards is very appreciated. They inspire me to be a more positive force, like they do to all the people who receive their cards.

“We send cards to the homeless here in Virginia Beach and Hampton Roads area,” said DiFernando.  “We send cards to prison inmates across the state of Virginia, we send cards to human trafficking victims in the midwest.  We just partnered with a new organization in Detroit that’s like a mentorship program for minority youths.”
