Jackie, a recent participant, shares her personal BeMORE experience and explains how her fellow group members encouraged her to ‘be more’.
“I came to BeMORE to turn my cause-driven approach to charity to an impact-driven one.
Five years on from being diagnosed with breast cancer, I joined the course because I wanted to stop feeling like a cause and start feeling like I could make a genuine difference to people’s lives.
What I have learned is that you can’t (and you shouldn’t try to) detach the head from the heart. But, that by spending your Monday nights with a group of inspirational people who all think in different ways and have different drivers, you can put both to very good use.
I am so grateful to my fellow BeMORE group members for shining a bright light in my life and encouraging me to ‘be more’. I am so grateful to our mentors for reminding us that when the currency is kindness, we are all millionaires.
I am so grateful to our chosen charity Young Minds who, through delivering digital mental health solutions for young people (designed by young people), are genuinely changing lives every day. And, I am so grateful to the incredible BeMORE for encouraging me to give regularly, keep a pot for acting on ‘on the spot’ generosity impulses and always remember to treat those around me so that they might go on to pay it forward.
If ever I need reminding that we are stronger together, I will think of this course. And I will try my best to BeMORE every day for the rest of my days. Thank you.”
The next BeMORE Experience starts on Monday the 28th September 2020. Join us for seven inspirational sessions and begin your own journey to generosity. Monday nights will never be the same again!
