A Priceless Gifting Option!
While we are still dealing with the excitement of gifts that we gave or received during the 2018 holiday season (when countless people all around the world celebrated the arrival of the ultimate gift to the world), I believe it is fitting to ask that we take time out to think about what it would take for us to make the selfless move of gifting family, community or even the world with that which we have been blessed - our gift of service.
What we might discover are components of the rigors of establishing and maintaining a nonprofit organization in ways that make sense to us only if we place ourselves in the shoes of those already in the vineyard.
We might also discover how important those around us are in the equation of the running and maintenance of a successful non-profit not unlike Your Time For Creative Empowerment, Inc. (whose objective is to effectively reach out to and creatively embrace those whom we know could use what it is that we have to offer them). While this scenario is fresh in our minds, let us go to the flip side of this equation, aka, the disinterest in such an initiative - for countless reasons that might have nothing to do with those who would benefit from it.
My appeal is for friends of Your Time For Creative Empowerment, Inc. to come forward and volunteer to help in any way that they can -- to restore the machinery back to the state it was before the health challenges of my husband, our Program Director, struck. Mr. Lacy, despite his current struggles, is quite devoted to the cause. Those who already have enough on their proverbial plate can certainly spread the word to others who are looking to make a difference. Please tell us about your intentions
and/or make a tax-deductible
as 2018 comes to an end, and we prepare to embark upon a Creative 2019.
I want to thank everyone who has in one way or the other showed support to Your Time For Creative Empowerment, Inc. over the years. We still need you and value your support.
