We are all about sharing the love here at Making Love in the Kitchen. When we came across The Giving Keys, we absolutely fell in love with the concept and beautiful necklaces. The awesome powers at be with The Giving Keys are kindly sharing their message with us and giving away one of these beautiful keys! Crystie Bowes in marketing explains...
“You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have truly lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love.” - Henry Drummond
The good we do today comes back to serve us tomorrow. The understanding of paying it forward has been the driving force behind the charity I work for: The Giving Keys. Our organization employs the homeless off the street to make engraved necklaces out of keys. But that’s not all. Once you receive the key with your unique message, you must eventually give it away to a person who is equally in need of the same message and come back to tell your story to the community.
The Giving Keys gives me, the homeless, and anyone who touches these necklaces the chance to make a difference. The keys are engraved with words of empowerment, such as PASSION, DREAM, LOVE, BELIEVE, etc. Wearing the key is a constant reminder to live out the message that your word conveys. And passing it along means you want to share the message with another to empower them as well. Your LOVE key reminds you to open your heart to love, allows the next person to do the same, and helps a homeless person to transition to a life of consistency and balance.
The Giving Keys enables those involved to tell a different kind of story. Users log on to write about life experiences, times of doubt and struggle, times of faith and hope, all serving to help inspire and contribute to a community of givers. How will you pay it forward today?
