When I learned my dad was dying of pancreatic cancer, I decided to create a second division within my company. With my husband’s help, countless hours of brainstorming, and months of trying to figure out how to make this mission stand out, Uplift Someone was founded.
Our mission is to use Recognition, Written Words, and Cherished Memories to share gratitude and appreciation with people we love. The R, W, and C are my dad’s initials. I shared my idea with my dad, just two weeks before he died. He cried, touched that I wanted to not only share this mission, but I wanted to raise funds for cancer related projects in his honor.
When my mama died unexpectedly nine days after my dad , I was flooded with guilt about all of the missed opportunities to tell her everything I felt I should have shared. But, over time, I’ve found peace through the last card I sent my mama just a couple of months before she passed. My card shared my love for her, and my gratitude for all she did for me, as my mom, and as a grandma to my children.
Unfortunately, many people don’t take the time to share their appreciation, and they have deep regrets when they realize it’s too late. Uplift Someone offers ideas, resources, and tools to make reaching out to others easier and more accesible.
“And, mostly, let us be full of wonder and excitement for every day we have, share our love with our family and friends we adore, and work towards living a life without regrets.” Join me and begin your very own journey of appreciation! Send a card, every single day, for 30 days, and experience what it truly feels like to give, without expectations. Sending cards of appreciation allows you to focus on the beautiful things in your life, instead of the negative, and you’ll begin to realize how much more you truly have. Join me today!
