Making a New Year’s Resolution to Benefit Others

Written by Lana Ebersole

It is that time again, the start of a new year. For some of us, this is a good moment to reflect on the last 12 months, and for others it marks a time of change and resolutions.

For us at Kids Matter, the New Year is a time for both reflection and resolutions. When we reflect on all that has happened the last 12 months, we have so much to be thankful for. Good people doing great things for children in need surround us as a charity. Our mission of helping children in crisis continues to grow inside the hearts of our partners, volunteers, board of directors, staff and supporters. It was a grace-filled, life-changing year and for this we are grateful. As for our resolutions, they are constant and simple: To continue to spread awareness about the children in our local communities that are in endless need of help, while increasing our supporters in the efforts to change and impact more children and their families.

As each new year approaches, some people look for sources of inspiration. We want our heart strings to be pulled in a new direction and our mind and body to be motivated to do better. Let Kids Matter and the children in need be your inspiration.

Through our seven years as a non-profit organization helping children in crisis, we continue to see an overwhelming amount of disadvantaged children who are in need of clothes, food, school supplies, educational programs and other essential necessities. Each year we try to expand our programs to reach more children with the help of donations and fundraising events. Annually, we kick-off our fundraising efforts with our Fruit of the Vine Gala in February. This event sets the stage for the rest of the year and allows our programs to grow. It is an evening to reflect and celebrate the impact our programs had on the children and communities, while also remembering that our work to help the children is never done. Start the year off by giving back in a big way while having fun by attending our annual Gala. Become a supporter and join us in serving the children of your community and around the world.

This year’s Fruit of the Vine Gala will transport you to the glamorous Monte Carlo. This dazzling evening will feature a seated French gourmet cuisine dinner, premium cocktail bars, casino, silent and live auction, and live entertainment. Join us on February 21 at the Hilton Southlake Town Square. For more information visit Kids Matter International

Happy New Year from all of us at Kids Matter International. We wish you a prosperous and glorious coming year.
