Oklahaven’s Board of Directors and Staff want to thank everyone who participated in the great success of this year’s campaign. Thus, we are delighted to announce this year’s winners of “The Golden Heart Award”.
College Category: Life Chiropractic College West in Hayward, California.
Clinic Category: Groene Chiropractic Clinic in Schuyler, Nebraska.
Please accept our heartfelt appreciation for each and every one of you who made a contribution. We also want to thank those of you who presented our video to others, either as part of the “Have-a-Heart” fundraising campaign or as an ongoing education for others. Our work and the work you do to heal the children is a living testament to the power of chiropractic.
As everyone in the chiropractic profession knows, Oklahaven depends on the generous support of the profession to augment our work. Without this support, we would not be able to help the most damaged children among us, nor would we be able to provide hope for their anguished and heartbroken parents.
It is for this reason our annual “Have-a-Heart” campaign is such a blessing. We chose Valentine’s Day as a symbol of this effort because this day is associated with love, the love that St. Valentine showed for his fellow man by his actions many centuries ago. To us, your generosity is an act of your love for children.
According to the dictionary, a Golden Heart is “a rich heart, full of love, faith and good values. The one who has a shining heart is an illuminated one who deserves respect and loyalty of everyone”. We think that definition clearly expresses why we call our award for generosity to Oklahaven’s work, “The Golden Heart Award”.
As you know, our profession is called to be different, and we know it! We are richer for our calling because we have learned to live with the great secret of life – LOVE. Thank you for consciously doing your acts of kindness for another without asking anything in return. Living this way, you see how your life grows. Miracles happen not only for others but for you as well.
Together we can return the life force to the children, our future.
Bobby Doscher, D.C.
