Just wanted to write my quick thoughts before the holiday whirlwind to let you know you made my year better that I could ever have dreamed.
I have a lot of people to be grateful for: my team, Sarah, Jessica, and Lauren; my family and friends; and our incredible communities. Most of all I’m grateful for all the nonprofits that invested in themselves this year and worked with us to increase their revenues, build their fan base, and provide stronger programs.
Looking back on this first year of officially launching Partner for Better, it’s been more inspiring and soul filling that I ever imagined. Thank you for letting me learn so much from you and work alongside you to lift up our community together. In February I want to celebrate that love and success, so mark your calendars for a little fun the week of Valentines Day. More details soon!
I’m wishing you all the best of luck with your year end giving campaigns and sending thoughts of hot tea on long nights getting those last grant applications and year-end reports done.
No matter what you celebrate this holiday season, I’m wishing you love, peace, and warmth. Happy holidays, I can’t wait to see what we accomplish together next year.
p.s. since I know you’re wondering: that photo was taken in 2016 at a PetSmart photos with santa event. Bennie is much older and grumpier now and would never allow that to happen again, but I just love the photo 😹
Keep doing more good,
