This episode of the Weekly Good highlights an organization and an individual who demonstrate that with a little ingenuity and hard work, a negative situation can be completely flipped to a positive one.
First, the organization story. What is sadder than being stuck in the hospital on your birthday? The answer is not knowing about the Confetti Foundation! They throw birthday parties for hospitalized children and have done over 5,100 parties in 47 states by providing Hospitals with “party kits” for the child celebrating the birthday.
Now the individual story. When Netta Jenkins was a teenager she came from school in tears one day after being the target of some racial slurs. Her Mom sat her down and gently but firmly told her, “I didn’t bring you into this world to cry about things, I brought you into this world to create change.” That was the “ah-ha” moment when Netta realized something – “I have the power to create change!”
