We always like to start the year off with not only becoming more organized, but in seeing what areas of life we can give back to. Our passion for animal rescue, children’s charities and our troops are most near and dear to both Ronn and I. So we look for ways to volunteer our God given talents, time or presence to these causes. Lately, we have been attending so many parties that we have become utterly exhausted from socializing. I have a sort of introverted side to me that needs to be alone at times, even from Ronn. He has a side to him that needs time to devote to his love for music, photography and editing. So we try and give that to each other, as much as possible.
It isn’t always possible to have that alone time with each other and time for our passions. So we must make the time and take the time to do so. It’s all part of living a balanced life. Ronn and I strive to do this in every area of our lives. So giving back is just as important. We must protect our children, animals and environment because this is our future. Part of the way DevRonn strives to give back is with our spice, music, time and creativity to encourage others to do the same with their passions.
It is the reason we do a lot of the things we do that makes us happier people in general. I volunteered my time to helping Shelter Hope Pet Shop gain more visibility for the wonderful work they are doing and have done to save the lives of a lot of animals. Our combined efforts created the 2015 Shelter Hope Pet Shop Calendar, which 100% of the proceeds go to the shelter to save even more lives. Ronn and Player gave back to “Songs of Love” on the Home and Family show recently when they recorded their 25,000th song for 11 year old, Amber, who is terminally ill with brain cancer. It warms our hearts to know that just that bit of our time and effort helped make a difference, put a smile or saved a life.
So, this new year has brought some amazing opportunities for me to do something I do well and that’s throwing parties. DevRonn will help host a few fund -raisers this year that will benefit some of our causes such as, “Songs of Love” and “Shelter Hope Pet Shop.” It’s also a great time for you to help us by sharing our posts and blog links to help create more awareness for these great causes. No matter how big or small, your voice helps and we welcome you to join us in giving back to our causes or ones of your own. Only by giving back can we truly prosper as a whole.
