MAJOR Donation Update For Eat and Be Well!

Bday gift

“For it is in giving that we receive.” ―    Frances of Assisi I am not quite sure who will get the greatest gift from these donations but I have a feeling that it will be equally shared. Many of you have asked me where my trunk full of green beans and corn came from…it was from my Aunt Cindy. She is amazing and I am incredibly lucky. When it comes to giving to others, she knows no boundaries. I am excited, and feel {Read More}

HOPE Soldiers In Action: 7 Year Old Malia And Her Lemonade Stand

Feeding America

“Have fun. Don’t be afraid.” ~ Malia I am pretty certain that at the age of  7, I was engulfed in a sea of barbies, bikes and cartoons…far, far away from being concerned about the needs of others. Recently, I came across a post on Facebook from a friend whose daughter Malia was on a mission for “Feeding America“. I was instantly intrigued. I just had to know where this little Hope Soldier’s inspiration and drive came from. I reached out to her {Read More}

Hope In The Unseen

I can hardly believe it has been almost two months since the last blog post. Truth be told: I am lost.

The mission was to drum up as many coupon freebies as possible for donations to local non-profits. We ROCKED IT and touched so many lives. Then this happened…. “Catina’s Causes” became a group effort and the {Read More}

Soul Satisfied Sunday: University Of Texas Commencement 2014
