'A Contagious Faith'.
I bought my Giving Key (from the UK) after I saw my friend in the US Rhea had given a key to her friend Dez Duron (who was on the Voice). I immediately fell in love with the idea and the cause and chose a key with something that means to the most to me - My Faith.
I found faith age 16 when after a difficult childhood I was put into foster care. My faith has seen me through so many trials, including loss, a car accident, difficulties and ill health, I wanted to share a little of my faith, in this brilliant way.
I had my key for over a year and was still hoping to give it to someone who was maybe lacking a little faith- instead the opposite happened.
For a while I had followed actor Nathaniel Buzolic (@natebuzz) on social media and was time and again blown away by his contagious faith, in a sometimes difficult industry. He is a strong advocate against human trafficking, something I am extremely passionate about. I felt so compelled to write to him and just encourage him in his faith and the way he shines his light. Passing on to him my Faith Giving Key somehow felt like the most natural thing, so it made it's way back to the USA to him. I hope that he is able to keep sharing his wonderful Faith and eventually share the key.
Today I saw a picture of him wearing the key on Instagram and I hope and pray that he can continue to share his faith with many, and his heart for justice, and the wonderful work that the Giving Keys do.
I honestly believe faith is contagious and seeing someone else's faith, strength and light in the face of darkness can give you the faith you need. I hope that I can fuel other's faith and can't wait to get my next key and spread some more love.
