WorldLegacy’s NC181 Leadership Team will bring love and possibility this weekend to the Masonic Home for Children in Oxford, NC. Originally, the team was going to create an extreme makeover of a suite of rooms at the MHCO. However, the facility closed its doors to visitors because of COVID-19. Instead of calling off the project, the team will get all the needed supplies, furniture and raise money so that once the doors are opened again, they will have everything they need to have their sleeping quarters transformed.

With vision and commitment anything is possible, even in the time of COVID-19. WorldLegacy’s NC181 Leadership Team, based in Chapel Hill, NC will provide everything necessary for the Masonic Home for Children in Oxford, NC to have an extreme makeover of the boy’s living quarters. Originally, eleven people from all over the world were going to paint eight bedrooms and create a fully functional and beautiful game room and a storage room during the weekend of March 20 – 22nd, 2020. In addition, the team was donating new bedding for the bedrooms, all the paint, new window treatments, ceiling tiles, gaming equipment, furniture, TVs, shelving, and inspirational art work for each room. This project was driven by a vision to leave a lasting gift to these children and have them get that they matter.

When WorldLegacy received the call that the MHCO was closed to non-essential people, the administration assumed the project would be cancelled. Throughout their Leadership training, NC181 Leadership experienced achieving “impossible results” and how a great team can have a huge impact on the lives of others. Obstacles are just opportunities to play an even bigger game. The project was not cancelled. NC181 Leadership chose to complete everything required for the extreme makeover by March 22nd, except for painting the rooms and final installation of the furnishings. In addition, the team chose to raise $5000.00 so that MHCO can hire painters when the Home is reopened.

WorldLegacy NC181 Leadership has a vision of a connected world filled with responsible and courageous people. They are committed to a world where children grow up believing in possibility and that they matter. This weekend, without any of the children knowing, a team of angels will be preparing for a future surprise. NC181 Leadership is committed to creating a space where children, who cannot live with their biological families, feel like they are valuable, are loved, and have a home.

WorldLegacy is committed to maintaining standards of excellence for its Legacy Leadership Projects, that are part of every leadership class. WorldLegacy has been operating for more than twenty years and trains at least seven leadership programs each year. Over the years, WorldLegacy has donated more than $3,455,000 in cash, contributions and labor through the projects. This project is the culmination of WorldLegacy’s three-month transformational leadership program. What makes the projects unique is that the WorldLegacy Leadership team must completely design the project from start to finish, involve the community to be partners, complete it in three days or less and cannot use any of their own money,

The WorldLegacy NC181 Leadership Team asks for your partnership to make this project possible. Please go to their funding page and donate money for the actual painting of the facility. If you cannot donate money, then create love and possibility in your community, so people in our world don’t live in fear and scarcity during these times.

The team and MCHO will have a virtual ribbon cutting in the future and celebrate and honor all donors and leaders who gave of their time, talents and resources to make the project a success.
