Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays from all of us at Click & Pledge. Each day I’m privileged to talk with nonprofit professionals and citizen do-gooders alike.
Nonprofit organizations of every size or design, from around the globe, call here daily seeking better solutions and striving to improve upon services to nourish and enrich their mission; each one passionate, enthusiastic, and engaged.
Upon reflection, though, I am awed by the steady stream of individual do-gooders that have a genesis of a philanthropic idea and want to go to work in their spare time. These folks are committed to something and just want to make a doggone difference. They are willing to invest their time, skills, energy and money just to give it all away to others. Awesome!
Yesterday a lady from North Carolina had a real sense of urgency to get a nonprofit venture started. She told me she was already a year behind; she wished she had started a year ago.
Encourage this pursuit of new ideas; the world can’t get enough.All this reminds me of a quote: “You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” – Gandhi
We should all be thankful and optimistic that many happy holiday seasons are in our future.
