people behind charity run

FOUNDER, JILL JONASSEN

SINCE HAVING KIDS I HAVE OFTEN FELT LIKE I AM DROWNING IN ALL OF OUR STUFF AND HAVE WONDERED – DO WE REALLY NEED ALL OF THIS AND IS THERE SOMEONE OUT THERE IN THIS COMMUNITY THAT COULD ACTUALLY USE THIS STUFF? ONE DAY IN 2014 I HAD THE BRIGHT IDEA OF CREATING A RESOURCE WHERE PEOPLE COULD GO TO FIND LOCAL CHARITIES THAT WERE IN NEED OF THE ITEMS THEY WERE NO LONGER USING. THEN, LIFE GOT IN THE WAY AND THE IDEA TOOK A BACKSEAT, UNTIL I HEARD JEREMY COWART SPEAK IN JANUARY 2016 AND THE IDEA CAME BACK TO LIFE. I FELT SO INSPIRED BY HIS TALK, THAT I THOUGHT, I COULD ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING WITH THIS IDEA. AND CHARITY RUN WAS BORN.

“And this is it. This is the life we get here on earth. We get to give away what we receive. We get to believe in each other. We get to forgive and be forgiven. We get to love imperfectly. And we never know what effect it will have for years to come. And all of it…all of  it is completely worth it.” – Nadia Bolz Weber
