Covid has completely turned all of our lives upside down, and as we all continue to adjust, some of us are finding ways new ways to help others in need.
Connie Denton commits a big part of her life to help children in developing countries. Children who can't afford things we take for granted, like being able to go to school. She founded the non-profit Just 1 Inc and set out to help just one child at a time by educating and empowering them, and she has now helped about 1000 children.
Once the pandemic started, Connie witnessed a need in her very own community, causing her to shift her focus. She changed her non-profit's direction from "just one child" to "just one senior or homeless individual." Connie organized a team to deliver groceries to senior citizens who can't leave their homes. She also spends her weekends dropping off clothes and food to those without shelter.
Touched by all of her efforts to support so many individuals in the community, Joel Bassam joined to share a special message and surprise Connie with $2,000, so she can continue to do fantastic work helping and feeding others.
