A relative of mine joined an organization a while ago that has changed his life and shared it with me. The organization is called the Knights of Columbus, a religious Catholic group that goes around and does good will for others. The organization was founded in 1882 when it was founded in Connecticut as a fraternal benefit society. The main purpose of the organization is to offer aid to those in need and their families. It has grown from a few people to over 1.8 million people and it's run by numerous councils in various countries like the US, Canada, Mexico and several others.
The Knights of Columbus have been there to help people suffering from acts of domestic violence to natural disasters. Every year they donate millions of dollars to various charities and give hundreds of hours to community service. Trying to make the world a better place, the Knights of Columbus are out there giving what they can to people who only have a little. For anyone whom may be interested, they have a twitter account and web page. If anyone knows of anyone that has free time and wants to make a difference then I highly recommend that you look them up.
The opportunity to become a knight is very simple but there are requirements that must be met in order to qualify. This is a Catholic organization so yes you must be a practicing Catholic if you want to join the organization. The way you can contact them is through their website and it will have all the contact information you need.
It's made a big difference in my relative's life and I know that if you're looking for something good to do and get you out of the house then this is your organization. He works with a wonderful group of people with fascinating stories and have a history of blessed memories. He's hoping to inspire others to do the same good so they too can have blessed memories. I write this blog tonight to send the message and help out because these are good people and the world needs more like them.
