“People forget what you kept, but they will never forget what you gave.” – Orrin Woodward
Life Members continue to band together in large and small communities around the world to make a difference by serving others. The Life on Life Initiative has become a movement in local neighborhoods where so many people are prioritizing their time to get involved with projects that serve the needs of people who are less fortunate.
In late 2016, Life Members from Moncton, New Brunswick joined forces with New Life Mission to help children experience a more beautiful and comfortable environment to learn and grow in.
New Life Mission is a nonprofit charitable organization that offers a free after school drop-in program for youth, where kids (ages 5-18) can get together, make new friends, participate in fun activities, and enjoy a snack. The purpose of New Life Mission is to provide a safe, comfortable, and nurturing environment to enable youth, regardless of their socio-economic environment, to realize their God-given potential and empower them to become active contributors to their community.
Roughly 20 Life Members from the Kaizen Steadfast organization participated in a productive Life on Life event where they re-organized the entire facility. Tasks included cleaning up the kitchen, moving furniture, re-organizing toys, crafts and general clutter, and throwing out items that were outdated. They also re-painted the walls of the entire building.
“It was a blessing to be able to get together as a group and get so much accomplished. Many hands make light work.” – Lisa Deveau (Life Member)
“It’s an amazing feeling to be a part of this great organization like Life. Giving back fills me with Joy! Thank you for such an amazing company and leadership. ‘Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.’ Philippians 2:4” – Josee Pauley (Life Member)
“As we lose ourselves in the service of others, we discover our own lives and our own happiness. I love that Life offers the opportunity for us to do this.” – Cynthia Dionne (Life Member)
