Welcome to Pure Heart Culture
Many people enjoy helping others, whether simply donating a can of soup during a food drive or lending a hand at a homeless shelter. Pure Heart Culture is a place where the story behind these activities and acts of kindness can come together, a medium for likeminded people to share their experiences and connect!
Pure Heart Culture has two mission objectives:
1. Inspire charity
2. Strengthen belief in a Creator
Our culture is organized by levels. Once registered, a user begins on level 1 where he or she may:
- Create a profile describing their background, interests or past volunteer experiences
Perhaps you often help your elderly neighbor by cleaning or helping with groceries, maybe you help a disabled veteran with a ride to the pharmacy. Maybe someone in a nursing home or assisted living center is lonely and you're interested in going there once in awhile to read a book together. Perhaps you're helping support reconstruction efforts in Haiti or you regularly give 10% of your income to your church or favorite charity. Whatever the case, sharing your experiences here can help inspire charity and help you earn points!
Points can be used to:
- Obtain donated products or services
- Receive recognition and awards
- Connect to others involved in similar activities
Points helps us measure achievement toward our first objective while credits help us measure achievement towards our second. Accordingly, achieveing our second objective is assessed through knowledge of theology, philosophy, justice, human rights, science, statistics and human health. These areas are discussed within our community through retreats, seminars, special events, online or local classes and book clubs.
Following completion of these activities, assessments and quizzes help to measure growth and award credits. Credits are similar to points, allowing members the opportunity to obtain donated products and services, receive recognition, and connect with others.
"We should pray with as much earnestness as
those who expect everything from God; we should act with as much energy
as those who expect everything from themselves."
~Charles Caleb Colton
"Thus says the LORD:
Share your bread with the hungry,
shelter the oppressed and the homeless;
clothe the naked when you see them,
and do not turn your back on your own.
Then your light shall break forth like the dawn,
and your wound shall quickly be healed;
your vindication shall go before you,
and the glory of the LORD shall be your rear guard.
Then you shall call, and the LORD will answer,
you shall cry for help, and he will say: Here I am!
If you remove from your midst
oppression, false accusation and malicious speech;
if you bestow your bread on the hungry
and satisfy the afflicted;
then light shall rise for you in the darkness,
and the gloom shall become for you like midday."
"You are the light of
the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden.
Neither do men light a lamp and put it under the measure, but upon the
lamp-stand, so as to give light to all in the house. Even so let
your light shine before men, in order that they may see your good works
and give glory to your Father in heaven."
