When you have been impacted by something, it makes you want to give back and make a difference, too.
We can all reflect on a time in our lives when someone had an influence on us. Often, the person who made an impact is an inspiration or role model.
What is truly remarkable is the ripple effect that one action by one person can have. When someone positively affects you, it often makes you want to do just that for someone else. When someone gives to you, for example, it might urge you to pay the act forward.
And that’s precisely what we’re discussing in this month’s Family Spotlight article – the power of giving back and why it’s contagious throughout the Kenzi’s Causes Family.
Meet Aniat Abdulmalik + Her Family
Aniat Abdulmalik and her three children, Ominisi, Adera, and Ize, have been a part of Kenzi’s Causes for six years. Ages six, eight, and ten, her children have spent a significant portion of their lives in our community of support. Aniat describes that inclusion as nothing less than lifesaving.
“Kenzi’s Causes paid for my CNA class in 2017, Christmas gifts, gas gift cards, etc.”
Because of donations from people just like you – Kenzi’s Causes has been able to provide household items, a more reliable car through our partnership with Longmont Ford, and so much more.
“Kenzi’s Causes has impacted our lives tremendously,” said Aniat.
Over the last several years, the Abdulmalik family has even attended some of our events in Fort Collins. Aniat’s children have enjoyed just being kids and doing activities like rollerblading, playing games, drawing, bicycling, swimming, playing soccer, playing basketball, practicing piano, and practicing guitar.
While this support and these activities may seem inconsequential, they’ve added up and ultimately made Aniat and her family feel cared for and important throughout their time in the program.
It’s this impact that has made Aniat want to give back to her community, too.
“Thank you all for what you do and continue doing. I can’t wait to be able to give back!” said Aniat.
To be a part of the Kenzi’s Causes program is to have a desire to show this level of kindness and compassion. If you’ve been moved, we invite you to keep the ripple effect going and make an impact on others by also supporting Kenzi’s Causes.
