My family for years has given money to charitable organizations for the amazing work they do to help the young, the poor, the devastated and more. Years ago, in college, I remember sending a $10.00 check to the Humane Society, an organization that helps animals. I thought it wasn’t a lot of money, but my dad told me that any amount of money you can send to help a charitable organization makes a difference. My parents taught me to be thankful and give to others early on in my life. Team National has always helped charitable organizations, helping others is part of our core values. We believe in giving back to our community, being thankful for our success, helping someone else in need and supporting organizations that make a difference in people’s lives.
It is an honor to form our own foundation, something our family has dreamed of doing for years. Team National Hope is a 501 (c) (3) private foundation. The name and the butterfly in the logo have significant meaning. Team National is a company that helps people have choices. Hope stands for Helping Other People Every day, and the butterfly is a symbol of faith and trusting the butterfly effect. The butterfly effect is the concept that small causes can have large effects, everything you do matters. Years ago, when my dad was battling cancer he was at a low point and needed a new direction for fighting his cancer. I found a cancer center, CTCA in Illinois that would see him. His health had deteriorated, so it was a long flight for him from Florida. I was outside our hotel wondering if I had led him in in the right direction for his healthcare. I asked God for a sign that this was the right next step, and suddenly a butterfly appeared. I have often heard that God gives us signs we miss because they are small, but if we listen and watch we can feel and see them. The butterfly that day was a sign that we were exactly where we were supposed to be. The next day, we met the new doctor at CTCA and he was amazing. He gave my dad hope, which lead to a greater zest to fight the cancer and a better quality of life for the next year. Hope is so powerful.
Team National Hope is years in the making and our family is proud to create it, fund it, promote it and share the many blessings we have been given to help others and to give them hope.
We are currently forming a website, videos, and events to help share the story of Team National Hope. If you would like to make a donation of any amount (it all makes a difference), please send a check to Team National Hope, 8210 West State Road 84 Davie FL 33324. Stay tuned for more opportunities in the future.
Together we can be a positive influence on others. Your small act of kindness, giving, & hope can be a butterfly effect and be a positive change elsewhere. Thank you!
