Hey Besties!!! I am in the works of creating something for the kids. So I created a Zazzle store. 100% of sales on any black butterfly blog merchandise will go to the funding of the BBXperience.
Meet our first member of
THE GLOW UP SOCIETY
When you do something that makes your soul sing a beautiful melody, then you know you're walking in your purpose. When you don't care how difficult it appears and when no one understands why you are still doing what you do, but you still move forward in spite of... You know you're walking in your purpose.
What is The Glow Up Society? The Glow Up Society is a prestigious club of members who have been recognized for their Community service or as we say here on the Black Butterfly Blog "The Glow Back". The Glow Back is a term used to describe the community efforts of a person and/or organization that reaches back into their communities and help it to glow. To glow is to renew, restore, revive, refresh and/or rebuild.
Vickie makes it her purpose to help those that are in need. In December of 2014 Vickie Lobo founded The Knock Knock Angels.
They are a non profit organization that set out to give the less fortunate not just livable but AMAZING living environments through her community miracle makeovers.
Her "why" was simple. She wanted to help those who just need someone to care. There are those that work their butts off to provide for their families but just can't get a break. As a single mother who struggled for years I know that part all too well.
Reaching your hand out to someone that feels invisible to the world and giving them peace of mind, allowing their children to sleep comfortably and have dinner at a table with the family is something that every human being should experience. It's humbling and magical to know that your efforts helped to make that a reality.
When you meet someone like Vickie you know from hello that with everything she does God himself is standing over her weeping with joy in his eyes saying "Well done." kind hearted, compassionate and just a wonderful human being. Vickie embodies The Glow Back Magic. The magic about giving is that it replenishes the heart of the giver as well. I implore you all to try it.
I am not wishing bad times on anyone but if trouble comes again instead of stressing start blessing. Get out there and bless someone in need with your time and service. You would be amazed with how amazing you feel afterwards. You will now be equipped with joy and better able to handle your own issues and with a clear mind.
When you are hurting, struggling and trying, it feels like you're alone. well, Vickie chooses to help those in the shadows come out into the light. They have stories to tell, goals to reach and children to inspire.
So until they come out of the hurt places and darkness these things cant be accomplished.
She knocks on the hearts of her community to engage. To join in and together they can climb mountains. The Knock Knock Angels provide home furnishings to the abused and/or neglected elderly, women coming out of shelters, veterans and single parents families.
The Knock Knock Angels also improve living conditions by providing beds, sofas, table and all home furnishings. Some people in our community don't have enough or anything at all. Coming together as a community changes all of that. Vickie and The Knock Knock Angels thank you for raising your torch of community service and being our first member of The Glow Back Society. Please follow this amazing organization on Instagram and visit their website. I have provided links below.
