Yesterday, I asked my 5-year old granddaughter if it was the best day of her life. She said “I don’t know. Is today your best day?” “Yes”, I said, “and tomorrow will be even better”.
She asked me how I knew that and I told her that I wake up every morning thinking the day has the possibility to be the best day of my life. That way, I’m always looking forward.
Such was the day I first learned about A Stepping Stone Foundation (SSF). The more I learn, the more I love! Now I am eager to help realize the vision and mission of SSF – to reach more preschoolers, support more parents, and nurture their younger siblings’ aspirations.
I am a fundraiser. That is someone who helps raise money for an organization or a cause. I am good at my job, because I believe the best fundraisers help create new money AND new relationships. Over the next year, I hope to meet many of you, learn why YOU love A Stepping Stone, and how we can work together to best secure a long-range future for them.
Stay tuned! In my blog, I’ll be introducing you to some of our current partners, new ones and will also be asking you to refer me to others you have heard of. Let’s do some great things for ASSF and for the families we serve.
