We are a young married couple committed to living out what we believe no matter the cost. Ive had a burden for months and when we found out about what the people fleeing Islamic State are going through we wanted to do something to help them. So we started Operation Do Something. It’s just a plan to do something, everywhere we are, just do something. Something kind, something generous, something sacrificial. Love looks like something. For those who cant fly across the world, do something at home…for your neighbor, for your spouse, for you friend, for the homeless guy on the corner. Let us love in action and in truth.

Operation do something is just doing what we can in anyway we can no matter the sacrifice. Everyone can do something. The smallest action done in love makes an incredible impact whether we feel or see the results. This crisis and these crimes against humanity has awakened us to the need to live out love starting in our homes. My husband was my hero before all of this because he apologizes when he may be hurtful and does so even if I was disrespectful and deserved it, he is my hero because he lays his life down in the ways that are the hardest like staying up when he is tired because i need to talk. He is inspiring me to get my head out of my butt and start saying no to my selfishness and yes to my neighbor no matter how close or far they may be. It might just be taking in your neighbors trash can in for them or it might be flying across the country with a backpack of granola bars to give to hungry children.

Love is a fruit in season at all times, and within reach of every hand.
