4Memphis Impact: What’s in our Name?
Since our first submissions in March 2017, this section of 4Memphis magazine has been featuring teenagers and their views on Memphis. We are calling ourselves 4Memphis Impact, and I’m sure you may be curious as to why. Sure, our fashion section is fluffy and fun to check out every month, but take a look to see what other topics our staff is taking note of and how they are positively impacting Memphis.
The Impact staff is seeking to incorporate articles that focus on volunteer work or put a spotlight on kids who are impacting Memphis in their own way. Our staff has decided to make it blatantly obvious how we want to change and help our community.
We plan to visit a different nonprofit each month to see first-hand how these various charities are contributing to the Memphis community in their own way. Ranging from animal shelters to free clinics, we plan to see how every single operation makes Memphis a better place. After volunteering ourselves by walking dogs, reading to third graders, or cleaning up the streets, we will release an article explaining how to get involved with that specific non-profit and what the service there consists of. If you would like your nonprofit featured, we encourage you to reach out to us. We would love to visit!
At the end of the day, 4Memphis Impact wants to say something powerful with its influence. Not everyone has an opportunity to have such a loud voice and sometimes the people that do misuse it. Our Impact staff wants to bring the people in our city together by lending a helping hand when possible, and contributing in a way that is not just by typing something up on a computer or snapping a picture, but by actually serving.
