The Lamorinda and Acalanes Area Chapters of the National Charity League (NCL) hosted its second annual joint Ticktocker meeting Oct. 6 at Miramonte High School. There were almost 250 members in attendance. Each member brought donations for their philanthropy service project with the Blue Star Moms, a nonprofit organization that supports members and their sons and daughters who serve or have served honorably in the U.S. Armed Forces. Donations included new socks, tuna packs, drink powder, peanut butter and cash donations. Blue Star Moms Suzi Lister and Jaci Beering presented to the girls about their organization and how NCL could help. After the presentation, the girls wrote letters to and made cards for the servicemen and servicewomen.
Also at the event was guest speaker Kelly Resendez, who spoke about "moving from intention to action." Her three ways to do this are to: write down your vision and goals; differentiate your "big voice" from your "little voice;" and identify your preferred method of self-sabotage.
Resendez is the author of the best-selling books "Big Voices" and "Foundation to Sustainable Success." She also offers training and coaching through her two companies, Big Voices and Foundation to Sustainable Success.
