If we get word of someone experiencing a need, if we see or hear of a need we make it our mission to get that need met.
Getting what is needed, giving to those who need it, in hopes of sustaining growth in all areas.
it all started in 2010...
I was tired so I prayed and I prayed hard. I needed to do more than I was doing, I needed to do something with what I had and what I had come to know so Get Give Grow was founded. I wasn't always sure what my purpose was but I kept getting clues I was on the right path when I did things to help those who couldn't at the time help themselves. It became clearer to me and quite simple. If I saw or sensed that someone needed help and I could help them, I would. If I knew I couldn't but knew someone who could, I would connect them. It was all about connecting the dots, getting to give, and inspiring growth. Ultimately all I am doing is advocating for people and connecting them to resources or creating them. We all have the power to connect the dots. We have the power within each of us to create great change and it starts with helping those in front of us, around us, and in our personal and professional sphere of influence. Then reaching out and back to others with the resources or information that helped us. Some of us are seed sowers, some of us water, some of us cultivate and harvest what has grown. No matter the role we all play a part in the process. This is GET GIVE GROW.
So if you've made it here, we hope that you know your seed is being sown into good ground! Your donation is going towards funding of classes, workshops, programs and so much more for boys, girls, women, men, low income families, small businesses, individuals with developmental disabilities, any anyone who can use some help.
Note from our founder
Growing up in a low income family and community I experienced many needs growing up. But what stood out to me were those people who saw that we had a need and decided to help us. That inspired me because all it took was for someone to see that we had a need for them to help us. Get Give Grow is my way of doing something about what I've seen, heard, and experienced.
“If you see that someone has a need, you hear that someone has a need, or you experience a need SPEAK UP there is help. Where there is willingness to SPEAK UP there is a way to get help or give help.”
