Sole Hope Shoe Making Party | Giving Back to the Community | TuesdaysTogether | Rising Tide Society

TuesdaysTogether chapters all across the world are striving to bring communities closer and give back to those in need. How amazing is that! Click here for examples of how giving back has become a cornerstone value of the Rising Tide Society community. When you look at the broad picture, it can seem very overwhelming. Even in your specific community, you want to help out, make a difference, but how? Where do you start? The world all of sudden feels enormous and you wonder how one person can do anything that will truly make an impact. That was exactly where we were. We started by searching for small local non-profit organizations that personally pulled on our heart strings. We found one that stood out and when talking with a few others in our group, learned more about them, and knew they were the one. It started with an email. We simply shared our heart, our vision, and we had a group of 30+ people that wanted to help in any way we could. From that email bloomed a beautiful friendship between our Monterey chapter and a local foster care center that we have we have developed a long to-do list we will be helping them accomplish in the new year including updating their welcome room, landscaping the front of the children center, and with the help of the amazing vidographers Estrella Films from our group, a promo video for organization to share exactly what they do.

We had plans for the new year but didn’t want to wait to start getting involved. Once you start giving your time and seeing an impact you can make, it’s contagious and you don’t want to stop! For the month of December we partnered with Sole Hope and hosted a shoe cutting party. Together offering HOPE, healthier lives, and freedom from foot related diseases through education, jobs, and medical relief. Our group gathered in our home bring the needed supplies for shoe making and couldn’t believe their eyes when they saw the surprise. Voltage Visuals had come in and completely transformed our little garage into a winter wonderland venue! Draping, lights, chandeliers.. the full nine yards! Floral Designs by Reina had created magnificent center pieces and Room for Dessert baked delicious goodies that went perfect with our hot coco bar! By the end of the night, we had made 27 pairs of shoes for the children of Uganda. It was AMAZING!
