Each Saturday I submit the name of someone who shines in his or her corner of the world. Their contribution might not be massive - no fifteen minutes of fame, no feature on the Today Show, no write up in the newspaper, and no fancy award presented or statue is erected. What makes these people shine is their willingness to improve their corner of the world while expecting no recognition.
Take five minutes to write a short note, thanking our recipient for making her corner of the world a brighter place. Place your note in a yellow envelope (or a white one, decorated with yellow markers). Print the words "Yellow Envelope Project" in the return address and be sure to mail it sometime before another name appears next week. Then, sit back knowing your gesture will work some magic.
Recent news coverage of happenings in Afghanistan and Pakistan are unfortunate reminders that our soldiers are still in harms way. Please join me in honoring today's recipient, Kristin. Kristen, together with her friends, is doing her part to make a difference in the lives of our overseas soldiers.
She is awesome, Kristin and her friends have become involved in Operation: Baking Gals in recent months and bake for soldiers oversees monthly. She loves sending mail to friends and family to brighten their days, so being selected would make her month.Kristin's address is...
5400 26th St. W Unit I-138
Bradenton, FL 34207
And, for a little icing on the cake... feel free to send us an email to email@example.com nominating someone you think is deserves to be recognized through Highlowaha's Yellow Envelope Project. All we need is a first name, and address, and a short paragraph explaining what makes your nominee shine!
Signing off until Monday.
