Open Doors. Open Minds.

“When one door closes another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.”

— Alexander Graham Bell

When you open a door for someone, you open more than a door.

You open a mind.

Whether it’s opening the door of a school, a service organization, your home, or a metaphorical door to a new way of doing things, you’re helping to bridge a gap between people and cultures, between ignorance and ideas.

When you open a door, you open a mind.

Quite often your own.


Today’s gift of time … We are hosting a student, Kate, from Kazakhstan, for the year. As a surprise bonus we were able to briefly open the door to our home tonight and welcome other students from Ukraine, Thailand, and Germany.

About Eric Winger

Our perception of time is key to how we use our time. The most fundamental way to change that perception is to give our time. This opens us up to new opportunities and ideas from which we can build to really make a difference. ... Yes, we *do* have time to make a difference!
