I’m not big on New Year’s Resolutions. Even though I do love thinking of January 1 as a time to feel extra motivated to be the best version of myself possible that year. This year, I’m making resolutions with a purpose, and I want you to join me.

1. Read and learn as much about poverty as you can.

Poverty is a complex and diverse problem. The issues that trap people in cycles of poverty can range from country to country, and as we know, community to community. The first step to combating poverty is to understand it. Though poverty is too complex to ever be fully grasped, being armed with knowledge on the subject will help you move forward.

2. Volunteer

Your time can be as valuable as your money. Volunteering with organizations both locally and abroad helps companies end extreme poverty. Plus, volunteering usually helps you learn more about the problem of poverty and the ways various companies are working towards a solution.

3. Tell your friends, family and church about the causes of poverty.

Advocacy is one of the best things you can do to promote the programs here at CKCAC. Tell your friends and family why it’s important to you. Give them CKCAC’s website or an annual report that will inform them of the many programs available to assist.

Resolutions are like a new pair of shoes. How much you wear them will determine how you break them in. Join us today in one of our meaningful campaigns.

More to come….much more.
