It’s time for back to school for some. For some it’s back to elementary. For others it’s Post-Secondary.
It was time to pick up our kid’s school supplies at Staples- We actually pre-order our supplies and it comes packaged – everything the kids need. Pretty good deal eh?
One slight problem – the school supplies for our kids did not show up. No supplies today – no pencils, notebooks, binders… well, I gotta say that my first world problems became more defined. We can’t complain. There are kids in the world who only need a pen and one book. It’s their prized possession to feed their hungry minds.
I was thinking of some basic things we can provide our children or ourselves (if we’re in school) that seem like basic necessities. Maybe a backpack, some pencils, pens, ruler, shoes.
Personal Challenge from Automate Your Life – Back to School
Here at Automate Your Life, we would love to talk to you about all the amazing technology and home automation – even the automation that could improve life for students of all shapes and sizes [and we will].
However, I would like to ask, that if you have the ability to give something of yourself right now, could you think of donating to a school or group that provide school supplies for those students of all shapes and sizes; For little ones to people who are re-imagining their careers through further education – could you think of giving.
There are going to be some future ‘automaters’ out there that could benefit from your generosity.
In the meantime, don’t hate – Automate.
