Working Together Wednesday

 Good afternoon everyone, I hope you are all staying cool with this crazy heat wave going on. 



Today I want to take the time to explain Working Together Wednesday and my reasoning/thinking behind it. I am also asking for your help, but that will be apparent in what I have to say. 

When I first started considering writing this blog I knew I wanted it to be different. I wanted it to be a place where I could express myself and share all sorts of things with you. I wanted reviews to be different from most others you find out there. I try to give more than one persons opinion in the reviews I do, so that you have more than one perspective right here in one place. I will try to continue doing that as much as possible. I quickly began to realize that while I can give a review of a company or a product I wanted you to also know me as a person. I just didn't feel like I was coming out enough in my reviews. Granted I have only just started the whole blogging thing a few months ago, so I am still finding my blogger strengths and weaknesses. That is when Sunday Sprinkles was born. It was a way for me to share me, my life, experiences, so you could begin to know me. I really enjoy making my Sunday Sprinkles posts because it allows me to not be so formal, not so this is this and that is that. Don't get me wrong I love doing reviews, and I plan on continuing posting them for you. 

 I still had this feeling that I was missing something. It started to really eat at me when I would see places, charities and people I wanted to help. Being a single mom I don't always have the finances to donate to places like I would like to. Not having a car I can't go out and do the physical things that could help. So what exactly could I do is the question I had to ask myself. I quickly realized that I have something right at my fingertips that can make a difference...this blog. Even if I can't donate, I could still get the word out about different things I feel are important. It may not seem like much, but with every person who sees what I write it could help. This is how my idea of Working Together Wednesday came to be.





Working Together Wednesday is a day I am devoting to promote helping, educating, and inspiring anyone who reads my posts to make a difference. This is a day I can share some of the things I am passionate about, charities we may not hear much about, missing persons, anything and anyway we can make a difference in someones life.
 
Now before you start thinking all my Wednesday posts are going to be asking you to donate money to different charities, I want to assure you it will not be that way. Yes there will be times I will make posts that will be about donating money, but I will not pressure you to donate. That is a decision that each of us have to make given our personal circumstances and beliefs. There will be posts giving simple ideas of things we can do every day to make a difference, posts spotlighting people who have made a difference, posts asking you to share information with others. Honestly there are so many things that I can cover with Working Together Wednesday that the possibilities are endless. I have already made a few posts that are labeled as Working Together Wednesday, you can find the most recent by clicking here.


Where do you as readers of this blog come in? Well I'd like to hear your ideas on charities, topics, someone you know who has made a difference. If you know of a company who is selling a products with proceeds going to helping let me know. I want to make this about all of us joining and working together. Another great way you can help is just by sharing the link to my Working Together Wednesday posts. I am really excited to hear your ideas and thoughts on this so please feel free to comment below or you can always email me at christiebrooks@att.net.










Peace, Love, and Cupcakes
