D.A.L.E. Foundation: Do A Little Extra

9 Mar

I was introduced to the D.A.L.E. Foundation recently, and I am so touched that I wanted to share this with all of you. The D.A.L.E. Foundation was created in honor of a man named Dale Settle Jr., 23, who was killed last September. He was shot during a robbery, and he was on his way to Bible Study. He sounds like a very amazing man who loved Jesus very much, and was doing his best to live for Him.

His family and friends, wanting to continue on with the way he lived, decided that telling his story and inviting others to pay it forward would be the best way to do this. I agree, it’s awesome. They’ve even created a flyer that can be printed off to give to others as you do a pay it forward type of gesture. This will get the story of Dale out, and continue to inspire and encourage others to be kind, and to share God’s love with others.

I would encourage everyone to do 3 things: 1. check out the website for the D.A.L.E. Foundation, 2. become a fan on their facebook page, and 3. print off several flyers and begin paying it forward. I guarantee that it will bring joy to your heart as you do kind things for others, as well as of course benefit those that you’re helping!

      Hi Lisa,
      It’s truly our pleasure to get to share about this wonderful Foundation you’ve created to help Dale’s name and legacy to continue on. I’m so sorry for your loss. I can’t imagine how hard this has been for you and your family. I love that you’re pressing on, and turning this tragedy into a way to bless others, and to share the love of Christ all over the world. You and your family are an inspiration to me, and I know many others.
      In Him,
      Lisa

    Thank you so much for doing this for us. It means so much to us. His story is truly an amazing one, and so, we want to spread the word, and help to promote everything that he stood for. We pay it forward by doing little things for others. But, he paid it forward by laying down his life for his friends. (this is his mom, Sharon)
