November is the month of gratitude. Gratitude is regularly cited for improving one’s happiness, improving our health and in managing adversity. Something so simple wields so much power in our daily lives.
Today our team would like to take a moment to express our gratitude for all the leaders, employees, volunteers and board members that choose to serve the nonprofit arena. You are effecting positive change in the world.
Every day, you do your job because it matters to someone else (maybe more than you will ever know). It has meaning; it is worth doing. There will be times when it feels like you aren’t making any progress – like you are stuck in the mud. But the reality is that while you spend every day just doing what you do, you are changing lives.
When you look back at the end of the year, I encourage you to answer these questions:
-How much money was raised?
-How many people were touched by your programs?
-How many people benefited from your work?
-How many people were educated, fed, housed or saved?
We know that you give of yourself day after day. And even when battling your own personal challenges, you still choose to show up so that those in need will receive the support that they count on.
At Big Buzz Idea Group, we believe that nonprofit leaders are the everyday heroes that the world needs to not only survive but thrive, simply by addressing the need to find solutions and make strides to lift others up.
We are honored to serve those dedicated to making an impact, particularly in these challenging times, and we want you to know how grateful we are for YOU! Thank you for being a blessing in our world and in the lives of those who need you.
Take a moment each day to reflect on your blessings, but to also reflect on what a blessing you are.
