"We only truly come alive in ourselves when we live for others"
We're a team of people that believe in the power of the community. And what makes a community? It's everyone one of us. It's a place where every person brings their unique gifts; a place where we we place agape at the heart of what we do, that is, to serve others without the expectation of return. When we do this, we become a light that shines before others.
Whether you're working on a small community project, or, you have plans to build a new mighty charity, we're here to support you. Please do get in touch to ask for support, and to share your community stories.
Until then, Godspeed to you in your community mission, and we'll leave you with the marvellous words of George Bernard Shaw for his words that really capture why we exist (thanks for James Robinson for putting us onto this quote!)
“This is the true joy in life, being used for a purpose recognised by yourself as a mighty one. Being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances, complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it what I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.”
- George Bernard Shaw
