Kindred

“To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

No matter what is happening in your life, someone else has been in your shoes. Someone else has a #story to share that can help you make it through to the other side. No matter what is happening, you can not only survive, but turn it around and #thrive.

This is what #Kerrie_Cooper learned from her father, making others lives easier. He was one of those old fashioned doctors and his life was all about helping his patients, especially those who didn’t have insurance, or couldn’t afford the drugs they needed to be healthy.

So when Kerrie decided to be an entrepreneur she had some qualifications that her new business would need to meet. I wish that all businesses had this same philosophy.

She dedicates 40% of the merchandise profit to a giving fund to help someone who has been swept up in a major life event. The kind that throws you off your course and stops you in your tracks. When your life as you know it ceases to exist and a new one must be made. The kindred giving fund will serve every day people who just need a #helping_hand to get back on their feet again.

I love her website – #Kindred, we are all in this together. Share this and spread the word – so they can help others get back on their feet.
