Charity isn’t a CrossFit thing, it’s a human thing. Its us helping others. Charity is cyclical and we all need some version of a graceful offering at some point in our lives. With that in mind, you gotta give to get.
“Faith without works is dead,” as quoted in the book of James. Sometimes our faith is physical-we offer a hand to rebuild a home. Faith can be emotional-it can help a hurting heart that is not your own, and more than likely, we all share in this need at one time or another. Lastly, faith is the means to make things happen, and in the world we live in today, money is means. Money is not a solution, but rather a bridge enabling certain folks the ability to survive long enough to find the answer that will eliminate their need for charity.
Charity isn’t a CrossFit thing, but we are going to use CrossFit as our model to grow locally and globally, just as the video explains above. I even hate saying “we need your help”, because clearly it’s “they,” who need all of us. It’s those kids growing up in conditions most of will never have a clue about. Families surviving such oppression where a glass of clean water becomes their cheat meal, a smile their entertainment.
I’m not telling you how to spend your money, that’s for you too decide. Your choices are yours to celebrate, or yours to regret. If another customized pair of Nano’s means more than life, you deal with your conscious. If your need for abundance trumps their need for survival, then I cannot motivate you to do anything.
Help CrossFit build a school. Help us fight locally, help us make a change globally. Do something that matters today.
