Today in South Africa, we observe a national holiday called Day of Reconciliation. It was first celebrated as a public holiday today in 1995, and I love the intention behind it. After apartheid fell, this holiday was started with the intention to bring unity and reconciliation between the Afrikaaner and African cultures. While we still have a ways to go to get to true racial harmony, I love that today serves as a reminder of the goal we are striving for. Together, in unity, we can get there!
Today, I would also like to invite you to stand together with us, not just in heart but in action. In this season of giving, I’m asking 100 of my friends to donate $40 to a cause that I’ve shed blood, sweat, and tears for. Ten Thousand Homes is 11 years old and still going strong with after school programs, training programs, and social enterprises. There’s so much GOOD STUFF happening, but of course, as with everything, they take money to run.
The invitation is there, and I hope you will accept and join us in heart and action.
