With all of the incredible Life on Life stories happening around the world, it is obvious that Life Members are some of the most selfless people on the planet. At the New Year’s Summit in Louisville, Kentucky, one team organized an event at the convention that would impact the lives of local men, women and children who are homeless. It was such a creative idea and we hope the story will inspire other teams to get involved at future leadership conventions!

Imagine that; Life Members taking their unused complimentary hotel hygiene items and donating the items to people in need. That’s exactly what this Wisconsin team decided to do on Sunday, January 24th of the New Year’s Summit. Sometimes it’s the simplest ideas that have the greatest impact.
The participants of this project collected and donated three reusable totes filled with toiletries and hygiene items. When the items were delivered to Wayside Christian Mission following the convention, the totes were enthusiastically received with one staff member commenting, “we can ALWAYS use this stuff.”
“It was a really awesome experience to donate stuff we weren’t going to use anyway.” – Jeremy Pethke (Life Member)
“We didn’t take a shower all weekend just so we could donate more 😉 …..maybe that’s why no one sat near us.” – Julie Vrieze (Life Member)
“Small items can make such a monumental difference when placed in the hands of those who need them.” – Shelby Zeier (Life Member)
Life is so proud to represent Members who are constantly thinking of others. The simplicity and creativity of this project certainly made a difference in the lives of those who need it in Louisville. We believe this story could create a Life on Life trend at future conventions! Thank you to all of those who organized, participated, and donated items from Team Results, under the leadership of Bob and Tina Rasmussen.
