“Joy is a choice.” That’s a surprising idea. If we make the food, buy the gifts and deck the halls, joy just shows up, doesn’t it? That may be true for some, but not for everyone.
People find joy in different ways. Something that makes The Shepherd Center of Richmond so unique is that we make joy a year-round choice. TSCOR volunteers already know the benefit of this and they put it into action. Drivers, teachers, speakers, committee members, board members – they’re all working together to bring joy to the community.
As Thanksgiving marks the unofficial start of a holiday season “filled with joy” (there’s that word again), and Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday, and Giving Tuesday follow on its heels, here are two fool-proof options to help you feel joyful:
- Make a donation to TSCOR. Your support spreads the joy of TSCOR’s programs and services.
- Shopping? If it feels like a chore, add a little joy! Shop AmazonSmile and select The Shepherd’s Center of Richmond as your charity of choice. Amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchase to TSCOR at no cost to you.
Another joy-bringing option? Become a volunteer. Because knowing how to choose joy year-round is really something to be thankful for.
Here’s wishing you a joy-filled Thanksgiving and a wonderful holiday season.
