Calling All Angels


Watch this beautiful video our friends put together...

To honor their son on his birthday Neal & Angie are asking for your help to donate either purchased or homemade blankets to give to a local hospital! Make sure to spread the word along. Last year they donated nearly 100 blankets!

All of the info (mailing address and such) is given at the end of the video so stay tuned! They will be delivering the blankets on May 30, 2011, Memorial day! If you have any questions you can write them at nealandangie@gmail.com.

You can read most of their beautiful story
here and here.

P.S. Last year's video made me cry.

"God does notice us, and he watches over us. But it is usually through another person that he meets our needs. Therefore it is vital that we serve each other. So often, our acts of service consist of simple encouragement or of giving mundane help with mundane tasks-- but what glorious consequences can flow from mundane acts and from small but deliberate deeds."
-Spencer W. Kimball

Recently I have truly learned that we can not delay service or any kind word or deed, no matter how small. It is in the little things that great things are brought to pass! Our time on earth is too short not to give others our all! Now is the time to serve and give! Little by little we can make a difference. To the world, you're just one person, but to one person you can mean the world.
