The CK Daily – Hurricane Ida and Afghanistan
Good Morning CK Fam!!!!
I hope y’all have had a wonderful, restful, recharging weekend and are ready to hop back in the work saddle this Monday morning!
While most things may be going smoothly for you at home, it is not always the case for our countrymen and women, domestic and foreign. This is not meant to be a saddening or downtrodden message, simply one of support.
Often we can feel helpless, we have obligations (work, family, caretaker, small children), but that doesn’t mean you can’t help.
Some real groups that are on the ball and helping that I support and would love to share:
Hurricane Ida relief:
Team Rubicon (Veteran operated relief program) – teamrubiconusa.org
Cajun Navy – https://cajunrelief.org/
Afghanistan Relief and Human Trafficking Prevention:
Operation Underground Rescue – ourrescue.org
Tim Tebow Foundation – https://www.timtebowfoundation.org/ministries/anti-human-trafficking
While it may be difficult to feel like you are doing nothing, support them monetarily, through prayer, sharing with friends and family how they can help, or with care packages.
May all of our neighbors have God’s protection through these tribulations. Join me in prayer for these people who are losing their homes, hope, family members, and more.
Have a great week,
Hot Topic of the Day
In a recent poll, 2,000 American moms with children ages 3–18 to identify the traits of a “cool” mom—and then asked their kids to set the record straight. The results showed that 3 in 5 kids think moms who help with homework and school projects are considered “cool” moms.
The poll mainly revealed that snacks are really the true way of winning the kids over. Half of moms have made a cheese board for their children, and more than half admitted that their kids eat more sophisticated snacks and lunches than they do.
Do you think snacks win over the “cool” mom title? What snacks do you pack in your kid’s lunches? Would you admit that your kids eat more sophisticated snacks than you? We’d love to know what you think! Let us know your thoughts over on the CK Facebook page!
