#adventgiveaday – Community initiative by Miss Oktoberfest Sandra Dynka
Hello Brentwood community!
I am so grateful for this opportunity to share in this month’s newsletter. My name is Sandra Dynka. My first experience with Brentwood Livery was while I was a Miss Oktoberfest 2018 candidate. This company is one I am so proud to be associated with because their customer service and care for their clients is out of this world! When I was crowned Miss Oktoberfest 2018, every member of the Brentwood team that I came in contact with embraced me, my new role and provided incredible customer service throughout the entirety of Oktoberfest.
It is no surprise that Brentwood wants to help spread the word about a community initiative called #adventgiveaday. This not-your-average-advent-calendar idea is one I came up with in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. I thought to myself “how can I combine my love of advent calendars with giving back to my community?” and this 25 day advent calendar of giving back came to life.
My goal when coming up with the tasks for each day was to ensure every single person, no matter from what walk of life, could participate in giving back to their community. Some people may be able to take part in each day, while others may only be able to complete one or two. The point is: every little bit helps and there is room for every single one of us at this table. I firmly believe that when we change our community, we change the world. And that is exactly what we are doing by sharing about and taking part in this movement. Some days involve activities like “send an encouraging text message” or “call someone you haven’t talked to in a long time” while other days are a little bit more demanding in terms of time with tasks like “shovel a driveway” or “visit a retirement home.”
So, will you join us? Will you help us make a difference in this beautiful community by participating in one, a few or every single one of the #adventgiveaday activities? The more the merrier… literally!
If the answer is yes, please post about your participation and use the hashtag #adventgiveaday all over social media so we can cheer you on! If the answer is yes OR not right now, please follow along on instagram @sandradynka where I will be sharing all about how this movement is unfolding throughout the month! I will also be sharing some of the group activities that we will be doing as a team that each and every one of you are welcome to join!
I cannot wait to meet you and make an impact WITH you!
Wishing each and every one of you the happiest of holidays,
