What is 10 Weeks of Giving?
10 Weeks of Giving is a Movement started in 2011 by Aminah Williams and Jana M. Gamble, Co-Hosts of Living Sweet, an Internet Radio Station that promotes "Tastefully Giving Back to our Community."
In the beginning this dynamic duo also known as Team Living Sweet, set out to bless individuals, businesses, churches, organizations and our community from October through December. Team Living Sweet hit the streets for Give Back Fridays blessing our community with Gamble's books 107 Ways to Give When You Think You Have Nothing to Give or I AM a Child of God along with some delicious goodies from Aminah's Treats and More!
Soon into this journey others began to join in and send their contribution along with the packages that Williams and Gamble prepared. By week 7 10 Weeks of Giving was recognized on Fox 2 News with Tim Ezell, Show Me St. Louis, and St. Louis's own JoyFM.
Many people were both blessed and inspired by what not just Williams and Gamble were doing but their families as well. 10 Weeks of Giving is great for all ages to get involved teaching children from a young age that it is best to give.
The 10 Weeks of Giving Movement continues to grow every year. The 2012 10WOG planned much more than a drop off of goodies every Friday, and got more communities worldwide involved. In 2013, 9 St. Louis Charities and 1 International Charity (Take Heart Association Project Kenya) were nominated as MVPs and received items from drives put on by local businesses and families!! A special THANK YOU to St. Louis Job Corps' Staff and Students who raised money to GIVE BACK to all 10 MVPs!
Now that's Living Sweet!!
The 2014 10WOG is launching the #GiveBackChallenge!! The purpose of this challenge is to create a ripple effect of giving across the world. Make sure you Like and follow the Living Sweet and 10 Weeks of Giving Facebook pages.
