There are 365 days in a year, by our standard calendar. Many of these 365 days, the average person spends their time doing insubstantial things. A day at the house, watching TV, or maybe kicking it with their friends. Of course, everyone earns their living, and spends half their life slaving in one sense or another, but the moments one looks forward to, are of the aforementioned.
Of course, there are other moments that are a bit more….lavish, that is just as important when there is time off. The crazed parties, expensive getaways, fancy meals with elegant company at overpriced eateries; pretty much filling up in a dose of vanity. The joys of life, if you will. Then, there is that which fulfills like nothing else can. The simple act of giving back.
As is already known by so many, BV305 has become a group that is looked upon when charity is involved. One thing that drives them, is the ability to give back when able, in whatever form is at their disposal. More so, it is in keeping their traditions to give their time and effort towards specific events that are meaningfully, valuable or near to them.
Every December for the last 3 years, Bearded Villains Miami team up with Amigos for Kids; an organization that’s existed since 1991, and formed as a subsidiary to Amigo for Children’s Homes, until they branched off a year later, to form their own independent organization with the purpose of raising awareness for the needs of South Florida’s abuses, neglected, and less-fortunate children.
In particular, this December 15th event was in the spirit of Christmas. Dozens of volunteers come together with Amigos, and figuratively dawn their Santa hats, and elf ears to gather up the items donated by so many, to later be received by these young and needing souls. A few hours of hard work, to bring smiles that last a lifetime.
In the 365 days in a year, a handful of hours can make the difference in the life of so many. These are the moments the bearded brothers live for. As people in a world filled with so much, how will you sacrifice your time, to make your difference?
