Usuallyon the last Sunday of every month I share where my monthly contribution is going. This monthly amount comes from a certain percentage of the Southern and Thankful t-shirt sales, which has been booming lately. So if you purchased a shirt in the last month you are not only making yourself happy… You are making others happy as well! This month’s gift is going to a philanthropy that is very dear to my heart. I have seen first hand how much good this project does and I am excited to be helping out again this year. Down here at TCU we make it a point to give back. My fraternity, Beta Theta Pi, has a philanthropy every year called Giving HeART. Over the past two years, Beta has been working closely with Cook Children’s Hospital, specifically with the Creative Artist in Residence Programme (CARPE). Giving HeART is a new annual event hosted by TCU Beta Theta Pi to give back to the CARPE program. The event is a silent auction of paintings created by the patients and family members of the CARPE program. These paintings are typically created during Art Creation Days that Beta helps put on at Cook Children’s. All proceeds go directly back to the CARPE program to help fund patient therapy through music, art, dance, writing and acting. The 1st Annual Giving HeART event was held in November 2014. The event raised approximately $4000 through the auction, ticket sales, and donations. It truly is a great project and we Beta’s enjoy this event more than anything. This year the event is on September 18th and I am really looking forward to it. Southern and Thankful will be providing a basket thanks to you all! I know Giving HeART is going to love it!
