Junior Golf: Please Take A Moment

In this Monday Mulligan I want to ask you to take a moment to consider the plight of those impacted by hurricane Florence.

The impact of this storm is still growing as flood waters inundate huge chunks of geography along the Carolinas and other parts of the Eastern U.S. Millions of people are watching their lives being totally turned upside down. So much loss as homes, cars, beloved momentos, pets and more are destroyed.

The aid agencies and private groups that are on-hand are very helpful but can’t do and replace everything that these folks need to get back to some sort of normal resumption of life.

There are 2 realistic ways that many of us can help: 1. If you are a spiritual person/family, you might consider praying or at least, thinking of these folks or sending “good vibes, good wishes or good luck”. 2. Please consider a cash contribution. Any amount helps. $5, $10, it all adds up.

Two organizations our family is comfortable donating to, because a very small percentage of the revenue goes to salaries/administrative costs, meaning that the great majority of their contributions goes directly to help people, are The Salvation Army and Samaritan’s Purse.

Your kids can surprise you. All of our four children loved helping people. When they were presented with an opportunity to help people in need, they are experienced a deep-seated sense of knowing they had done something , however small, that would have a genuine positive feedback on someone who needed help.

Give your youngsters a chance to help. Mow an extra yard, do one more chore, do something to make a little extra money so they can give it to someone in dire straights.

See you on #1 tee after you’ve helped someone… Sam
