Inspiring Each Other - Buckeye Style
Share your photos, videos, quotes, and inspirational words
In the midst of adversity, hope rises. In the midst of great challenges, helpers are there. In the midst of uncertainty, inspiration abounds – but it needs to be shared. We are starting a new Ohio State Marion “campaign” called “Inspiring Each Other – Buckeye Style.” This campaign is not about raising money to support our worthy causes, it’s about raising the human spirit to help us get through tough times. It is another extension of our campus culture of caring. The Ohio State community is like no other. We invest in one another; we ignite hope and we inspire. That’s what we need. We need to share positive stories of how you kindle hope, how you are helping another or how they are helping you, but mostly how you are inspiring yourself or others. Positively speaking, what are you doing to get you and your family through these current circumstances? Please engage and share your positive stories, videos, pictures, quotes or thoughts so that we can share them with the Ohio State Marion community. Starting today and for the duration, please send all stories, photos, quotes to Wayne Rowe at Submissions will be shared on social media and via email communication. Thank you for inspiring each other in this way.
