By definition is the effort or inclination to increase the well-being of humankind, by charitable aid and/or donations. Love of humankind in general. Something, such as an activity or institution, intended to promote human welfare.
As a young child charitable work and behavior was a learned skill for me. My mother and I would always at the beginning of every summer and fall pull out clothes, shoes, household items, etc. and give them to someone who was less fortunate than we were. It gave me a sense of joy to help others and give back for the greater good of mankind and our community.
I realized soon enough that it’s not always about me and what I wanted or needed, but all about having that compassion, empathy and solitude of giving and being able to give in service and/or deed without expectation of return just that simple feeling of generosity not only in monetary form but in my service as well “Is like food to my soul!” There is a scripture that sticks in my head constantly; In Genesis 4:9 it states, then the Lord said to Cain, “Where is Abel your brother?” He said, “I do not know; Am I my brother’s keeper?” And each and every time I ask myself this question the answer is YES! I am my brother’s keeper; I am responsible for the welfare of my brothers and sisters or an extension of human beings in general. I believe that the least I can do is to LOVE and show LOVE without judgment!
So the substance of my core and what I try to provide through my company “Your Favorite Couple, Inc.” Is to create and sustain a platform that we are not in this world to live alone but to coexist in harmony. The LGBT community has been scrutinized so much from the mainstream media to local schools and churches; to the point of where we have forgotten that We are someone’s Daughter, Son, Sister, Brother, Mother, Niece, Nephew, and Friend! LOVE is what binds us ALL and without caring for the next fellow human being and spreading AWARENESS of the basic idea of Philanthropy and Humanitarianism we will forever more be a lost Nation!
