Every child deserves the opportunity to feel good and feel safe – it’s a fundamental, foundational need for all humans, and when you don’t have that as a child, it can create limiting beliefs that obscure your potential.
That’s why Laura Mayer co-founded Clothe Our Kids, a nonprofit dedicated to providing at-risk children in Tennessee with much-needed clothing and shoes. Their goal is to help these children feel loved, cared for, and good about themselves – what they call “clothing kids with confidence” – and each bag they deliver is custom packed with quality items and with the individual needs of the child in mind.
Laura grew up in a loving home with support, where she was home schooled by her mother, but when she left home, she found that the rest of the world wasn’t always so supportive. She found herself in an abusive relationship, and after she escaped it, she felt lost. As a result, she put everyone else and everything else at a distance because she didn’t feel safe.
However, a transformative experience at church taught Laura that she had to let go of the past; she didn’t know what that was going to look like, but she was done letting anyone else steal another day of her future. She couldn’t go back, she couldn’t change what happened to her, but she could choose to move forward with her head held high.
Laura also found inspiration and support in a wonderful book called Boundaries: When to Say Yes, How to Say No to Take Control of Your Life, which she recommends to anyone who resonates with her story.
It’ll help remind you, like I hope this podcast does, that everybody is here on this Earth for a purpose. We all have God-given abilities, and we all have the ability to create an impact on the world. But before you can find your Why, you must remember and believe that you are worthy of one to begin with – and giving children the opportunity to remember that is really why Clothe Our Kids is making such a positive impact on these young lives.
And if you want to make a positive impact today, you can support Clothe Our Kids – or even bringing Clothe Our Kids to your community because every city needs this! You can learn more at http://www.clotheourkids.com/take-action.
