Lately, I’ve been doing a daily gratitude activity where I list 3 things I’m grateful for. Every day the list changes. I often write things like “family”, “work that I enjoy”, or “my dumb dogs.”
Last night I wrote, “A comfy bed.”
This morning I woke up and looked at what I wrote, and my gratitude increased even more. You see, I had totally forgotten I was going to pass along our first Share The Spark feature this morning about The OSU Star House.
The OSU Star House serves central Ohio teens who don’t have a comfy bed. They don’t even have a home. It’s quite sobering to think that as I lay on my pillow top mattress with 600 thread count sheets, there are countless people suffering from homelessness. All homelessness is sad, but it is even more gut-wrenching when it applies to teens. We’re talking about KIDS living on the street.
About a month ago we committed to using the sparkspace platform — our resources, money, space, audience, etc. — to shine a spotlight on some of the unsung heroes that are doing everything they can to make Columbus an even better place to live.
So, I invite you to check out our first Share The Spark feature on The OSU Star House, written by sparkspace’s own Alisha Thomas. I especially invite you to read the end of the article where we list some ways you can help.
