Meadowlarks Service League Meeting
This morning I had the opportunity to speak at the Meadowlark Service League Meeting and present Luggage of Love to the group. I shared with the members how transitioning with garbage bags made me feel as though my personal treasures, no matter how used and tattered, was trash and therefore I must be as well. I shared my story, the same story of too many foster youth, and told of the negative lifelong effects carrying ones belongings has on a child who has nothing. Luggage of Love is doing its part to stop this viscious cycle. I truly hope my presentation inspired the members to adopt my cause as one of their own.
