Each Spirit of Arkansas Award selection is chosen by how an organization is helps our community. Live Thankfully is providing help in more ways than one. The upscale retail store was started by Kimberly Cook and her kids to serve other teenagers. The store not only provides a place to shop for gently used, upscale clothing, but also donates ALL profits to help women and children in crisis. The two main recipients of donations from Live Thankfully are Immerse Arkansas, an organization that benefits teenagers aging out of the foster care system, and Young Lives, an organization that benefits teen girls that are pregnant or have a child. The work that Live Thankfully does to impact the lives of teenagers in our community is why they are an excellent choice for the Spirit of Arkansas Award.
