A few years ago, I learned a simple trick about how to be happier on a daily basis. I’ve talked about my experience countless times, and what it all comes down to is this: be grateful for what you have. One of my favorite quotes that I often refer myself to is by Tony Robbins: “When you are grateful, fear disappears and abundance appears”.
It’s an easy practice for me, especially since I have everything I could possibly ever need. A warm house, food on my table (and the ability to put it there), my health, a wonderful family. Clothes on my back. I feel incredibly fortunate every day for each one of these blessings.
But for the nearly 15% of Americans living in poverty, these things aren’t available to them in abundance as they are to me. Or maybe to you. When I slip on my warm winter coat in the morning, or watch my two girls bundle up in their own coats that will keep them warm while they wait at the school bus stop…I remind myself how fortunate we are.
Because for someone living in poverty, a winter coat is a budget “extra” that they likely can’t afford. I can’t imagine going without one, yet so many people have to. I cannot imagine being a mother and having to send my children out the door in freezing temperatures without a coat! The thought breaks my heart.
Which is why I’m incredibly proud to be sharing the mission of “One Warm Coat”, a non-profit, national organization that provides free, warm coats to those in need. The vision I get of even one person being given a warm coat on a cold winter’s day makes me grateful that I have this platform to help even in this small way. And you can help, too!
From January 15th, 2018 through February 28th, 2018, TruMoo will donate TWO COATS to One Warm Coat for every person that shares a photo of TruMoo Chocolate Milk served HOT on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram with the hashtag #WarmUpWithTruMoo.
That’s IT. All you have to do for TWO COATS to get donated is make some delicious hot chocolate with TruMoo Chocolate Milk and post a photo on one of those social media channels!
TruMoo Chocolate Milk, in case you’re wondering, is DELICIOUS heated up! My daughter Kylie is home sick from school today with a bad cold, but she brightened up when I brought her a big steaming mug of TruMoo Chocolate Milk with some Jet-Puffed marshmallows. It’s perfect for my girls to heat up themselves when they want a warm, chocolatey treat. And how about if you have a house full of people and you need a big batch of hot chocolate? It’s perfect for that (like the holidays)!
Plus, TruMoo is running a promotion with Jet-Puffed marshmallows in select stores across the country. A coupon of 65 cents off will be available when purchasing TruMoo Chocolate Milk and a bag of Jet-Puffed marshmallows together. Use the extra savings and the marshmallows to create a warm smile in your heated chocolate milk. It will surely put smiles on your loved ones if you do!
