Change By Design
Let's Be the Change we Seek
We all have gifts and talents that no matter how humble or small can contribute to solutions to create greater equality, and opportunities for all. In our ordinary ways, we can be the change we seek in the world.
A stranger’s cry for help inadvertently led me to discover this. You see, I was asked for help by a young man who had just aged out of the foster care system. In responding to his request, I saw in this young man’s needs an opportunity for community to come together, to be the change. By simply sharing what we have too much of and our time, we can create sustainable tenancy for those most vulnerable to experiencing homelessness.
My random act of kindness in helping that young man evolved into a nonprofit, A Sense of Home (ASOH).
What I discovered is that when we gather with strangers in collective moments to share our gifts and talents to be the change we seek -- we can also share our joy and pain. When we do so we bare witness to our inextricable human connection. Everyone gains from their part in the solution. The result has been a demand for ASOH chapters to open across the around the western world.
This site humbly reflects some of my experiences in Change by Design. Thank you for stopping by. Georgie xo
