About Our Chapter
“Love cannot remain by itself- it has no meaning. Love has to be put into action, and that action is service” – Mother Teresa
We are all put on this earth to serve a bigger purpose. I believe one of the most significant moments in a person’s life is when they realize or find that purpose and in this I am not speaking of the realization of something you are gifted, talented or good at. Instead, it’s the moment you feel an all-consuming, burning desire to give yourself whole heartedly without reservation or fear to that which connects with you and aligns the stars within your heart.
Chicktime Mission is my opportunity to embrace and live into what I believe to be a core purpose and meaning of my life. Our mission is to love and serve the children of the Rio Grande Valley who have been neglected, abused and/or abandoned. We’ve all heard it said, “it takes a village” – every child deserves at least that, and many survive because of it. It is our hope and prayer that through interactions with members and volunteers of our chapter these children realize they have a village, they are loved, and that today is just a page, not the final chapter in their story.
We are more powerful together and cannot do it alone. If you are interested in the opportunity to change a life one loving moment at a time, please join us and LIGHT THE FIRE! All hearts will be changed forever.
