Building a Better Edmond

If I were in charge of my neighborhood, I would do this __________! Has this script ever ran through your head before? Or how about making changes to the town you live in? Here’s a little secret: there’s no prerequisite or position of power you need to hold in the community to make a difference. All you need is is an idea and the commitment to make it happen!

Most commonly, we tend to think we have to make such a change that it impacts hundreds of thousands of people, but who says it can’t be one family or even one person? Yes, it can get there eventually, but even changing the lives of a handful of people would make such a difference.

So, where to begin? We’ve listed just a few  ideas below that may spark an idea in your mind. And we’d LOVE to hear your feedback or any ideas you decide to take on! Leave us a message in the comments section below. We appreciate you, and be sure to have fun along the way!

1. Take a seat on your front porch or in your from yard.

You never know what might bring a family to your neighborhood! They could have even moved from another state and not know anyone in the area. Sitting outside your home rather than keeping to yourself inside is a great way to meet your neighbors and possibly impact someone.

2. Take care of the tab.

Do you know someone who’s struggling a little financially? A simple gesture of paying for their groceries one week or taking care of one month’s utilities would help tremendously.

3. Support your local businesses.

Do you get tired of the “same ole” in the town you live in? If so, have you considered how important those “same ole” restaurants and stores need your business? Maybe, just maybe, there are some local businesses out there you’ve never even tried out before! A thriving community must receive support from it’s residents in order to keep moving forward.

4. Drive or walk?

Not only do us as human beings need more exercise, we can also be mindful of the environment when we spend countless hours in the car each month driving to and from school or work. Do you live within walking distance from either? Try taking a walk and seeing the health benefits you receive and also have peace of mind knowing you’re doing what you can to protect the environment.

5. “Love your neighbor as yourself…”

One of our most favorite commands from the Bible. Has anyone ever helped you in a time of crisis? How did it make you feel? There are more opportunities out there than we realize to assist those in need. Find a family who could use a whole winter clothes wardrobe and gather your friends to buy the clothes. Even better, partner up with a non-profit organization and find areas where they’re in need.

6. Pass along your God-given skills.

What comes naturally to you? Is it baking? How about math? If you know of someone who could benefit from the skills you have, why not share them!

7. Look out for the elderly.

Is winter on it’s way here? If so, be looking out for a snowy day and assist an elderly neighbor with shoveling his or her driveway. Or how about mowing the lawn? This would be a huge relief to anyone, but especially someone who doesn’t get around like they used to.

Thanks for reading, and don’t forget to share your thoughts in the comments section below!

Hurricane Relief – How You Can Help

Our hearts are deeply saddened by the recent events that took place on the southern coast of the United States. Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma have devastated tens of thousands of families and have left billions of dollars worth of damage behind. Ruin like this can take years of rebuilding.

On behalf of Keller Williams International, we are asking for any and all to join us in supporting these dear families in Texas, Louisiana, and Florida. By making a monetary donation, you can help us assist in the recovery efforts and possibly reduce some of the burden that has been laid on these families.

Mo Anderson, Vice Chairman of Keller Williams International, has made a commitment to help as well. She has offered to match the total amount of money donated towards hurricane relief at any Keller Williams office. If you feel led to give, we strongly encourage you to do so and look forward to seeing what our community can do to make a positive impact in this hopeless situation.

You can drop money off at any Keller Williams office and 100% of it will be given to relief efforts, plus Mo will match what you give. For more information, please feel free to give us a call at (405) 330-2626.

Thank you for joining us in helping those that need help the most. We appreciate you!

Blessings,

Kim, Terra & Kiley

We Will Never Forget

In the United States, we observe today as Patriot Day, or the National Day of Service and Remembrance. This day occurs on September 11 every year in remembrance of the victims killed in terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. President George W. Bush officially named this day as the National Day of Service and Remembrance in order that we may have a day that allows us “to keep alive the spirit of unity and compassion that arose in the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 attacks in tribute to the individuals lost and injured in the attacks, and the many who rose in service in response.”

Join us as we “keep alive the spirit of unity and compassion” by thinking of ways you can impact our surrounding community. Typically on this day, volunteers across the nation come together to perform blood drives, meal packing projects, painting and refurbishing homes, food drives, reclaiming neighborhoods, and so much more. Two of the largest projects held annually are held in New York City and at the National Mall in Washington, D.C. where more than 7,000 volunteers come together to pack over two million meals for individuals at risk of hunger.

The OKC Metro has plenty of wonderful organizations which have the same goals and desires as what’s listed above. Some of these are FaithWorks, HOPE Center of Edmond, Project 66, Wings: A Special Needs Community, and U R Special Community Closet. If you feel led, contact one of these organizations to get involved today!

Thank you for caring for Oklahoma City and it’s surrounding areas, and let’s never forget what happened to our beloved country and its citizens 16 years ago today.

Blessings,

Kim, Terra & Kiley
