Plate #091 Stories

March 23, 2017

The old saying, "It's the thought that counts" is so true. A simple gesture like passing a plate of cookies doesn't have to take much effort (the cookies could be purchased from the store!). I received this plate with cookies from one of the sweetest women I know and my family enjoyed the treat she shared! I'm passing the plate along to a dear friend who has been caring selflessly for family members over the last several months. Giving her a little treat to enjoy is a small gesture to honor her care giving.

This plate was given as a "thank you" to Wendy who works in our family office. She handles a lot of details for our family which
allows us to direct our time toward our goals and ministries.


To encourage individuals to Care Well for others, Karen Mulder created and distributed approximately 150 Giving Plates at an event in Holland, Michigan.

The concept of the Giving Plate is that it is on a journey that has no end. The receiver of the plate enjoys the treats given them on the plate, and then passes the plate with fresh goodies on to someone else.

These Giving Plates were created with a unique tracking feature so anyone can visit this page to learn where each plate has traveled and read about its unique experiences along the way.

God Bless
