A time sensitive opportunity for us
I hope you’re well and taking care of yourself.
We’ve all been impacted by COVID-19.
If you’re well and reading this, please review the news my good friend, Ellen Rogin, shared today:
“According to a Feeding America study pre-pandemic food insecurity had already been impacting 35 million people annually in the U.S. including 11 million children. These were actually the lowest numbers in 20 years.
The pandemic has reversed those improvements made over the past decade since the Great Recession. So when Feeding America now projects that 1 in 6 (more than 50 million people), are experiencing food insecurity in 2020, including 1 in 4 children (approximately 17 million), we know that millions more are newly facing this basic need, right now.
I’m not suggesting feeling guilty or wrong with purchases and gifting, but instead suggesting you consider how much better you might feel by also digging deeper this year to help others – whether through charitable giving or direct financial gifts to those in need.
In the words of Anne Frank: “How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.”
As you consider the upcoming gift giving season, I encourage you to consider sharing this opportunity and giving a gift of a donation to your local food bank or nationally in the United States through Feeding America at www.feedingamerica.org.
One of the most common questions I receive is “should I start my own non-profit?”.
Today is a perfect example of a time when you may want to partner with an organization that speaks to your heart, an organization that is already in practice. Then, offer your talents.
Take your time to learn about what’s going on for them and how you can use your own superpowers to make a difference so you can create a rapid impact.
You’ll be glad you did and your generosity may change lives in ways greater than you can imagine.
I so appreciate you and that you continue to choose to make a difference for others.
If there’s anything I may do to support you, please let me know by replying to this email.
Until we meet again, I’m
Sending Love and Gratitude,
