Together, We Can Make A Difference.
For the past year I have been doing one thing a day for the Omaha community in the form of volunteering, making donations, feeding the homeless, providing bus passes and numerous other acts of kindness. I used this yearlong charity effort to encourage others to volunteer or donate just an hour of their time or resources to better the community.
Over 300 hours were contributed to the community, but for my final act I had something bigger in mind. I came up with the idea of donating a car to someone in need to wrap up my #Onefor365 project. We Can Make a Difference chose to donate the car to a resident of the Sienna-Francis House in Omaha who was going through tough times and in need of a car.

“If we took the population of Omaha and put that into just one hour per person per year, the equivalence would be weeks and weeks’ worth of workers’ time”
