Why do I keep giving? Why do I blog?
Because the people it inspires, inspire me right back! It’s not about me, it’s about we.
This morning I received an email from Literacy Works Chicago, thanking me for mentioning their organization in the Time Out interview. That was a no-brainer for me, I was simply thanking them for the great work they do! It was the Post Script of this email that really got me:
"Oh, and a big PS — Our administrative assistant opened her email this morning to six different messages from people who want to volunteer with us. We’re confident that this is the result of the Time Out article."
That’s what this is all about! People reaching back out and giving whatever they can, time, money, in-kind donations, these little bits of good can add up big for a “small, but mighty” organization like Literacy Works Chicago. Thank you to those people who felt the need to volunteer, you are my heroes!
