Rebuilding Together OKC (Episode 204) (27:51)

It's assumed that to be creative you have to come up with an original idea, an idea that is completely out of the blue that no one has ever thought of before. As the wise Solomon said, "There's nothing new under the sun." Creativity isn't necessarily a new idea but sometimes thinking creatively consists of combining two different ideas in a way that few have ever thought to do before. For example, Rebuilding Together is an organization that provides much needed remodeling to seniors who cannot afford it by using donated materials and volunteer labor. Very creative! However, they take creativity to another level by organizing a push-car derby to raise even more awareness and financial support to their cause. Children with disabilities may face many obstacles in their lives but it's incredible to see how 30 minutes on a horse can remove those obstacles. Heritage Farms in Shawnee finds ways to get children who may be restricted in every other aspect of their lives the opportunity to be liberated by controlling a 600 pound animal. Tune in to this month's episode of State of Creativity to see two stories of organizations that do exactly that use creativity to impact their communities.
