Pay it Forward Links

Ben’s chosen some organizations he wanted to support and to pay it forward after all the care he received with his wish list. Here are a couple of the places he’s worked with donating to:

Our Daily Bread is a local program providing meals and other resources to members of our community. We love that it’s local and the kids have been able to bring in canned goods, produce from the garden, and toiletries they collected on some of the trips. For Ben’s birthday this year he asked guests to bring donations for Our Daily Bread instead of presents and then we went over to drop them off in person, and they were so sweet and welcoming.

Lighthouse for the Blind of Fort Worth we learned about as they provided Ben’s cane training, along with information and support for our family. This is something they offer free of charge, and it’s invaluable for anyone with vision challenges to have them as a resource. At a holiday gathering there we were told they had been receiving donations from people who had heard about Ben’s story and wanted to help others – that made Ben SO happy, he teared up. There may be a similar program in your area that could benefit from your contribution!

We hope that gives you some ideas, and there are countless other programs out there making a difference in people’s lives – thank YOU for helping make that difference!!

    My husband, Kent Ferguson, is the retired USDA/NRCS (Natural Resource Conservation Service) State Rangeland Management Specialist. He loves to teach and has vast knowledge of our natural resources including the grasses that covered Texas prairies before development. We have a ranch in Valley Mills and would love to invite you to come and learn the look and feel of the grasses. The grasses can be identified by feel. Also, we would like to show you how we graze the cattle and the fences that are used. Please let us know if you can come for a day.
