Unleash Generosity


Isn’t it amazing how many things we’re able to do? I mean, like fly to the moon, curing diseases or seeing someone’s face when you’re talking to them on the phone? So many things are just a click away. We can order groceries to our door and shop for things we want online. But we can’t have Thanksgiving together. Isn’t it amazing how we think we have everything we need and then, we don’t.

I don’t mean to be depressing. I want to focus on the phrase “isn’t it amazing!”. I want to tell you how amazing it is at 190 volunteers made over 7,260 lunches for individuals who are homeless during Covid through A Home for Everyone in Dekalb. I want to tell you how amazing it is that three 5th graders spend their free time every week tutoring younger kids that are having trouble reading. The students come from different parts of the world and live in different parts of Atlanta, but find a common experience reading together on Zoom. Isn’t it amazing that as part of the Clarkston COVID-19 Task Force we helped distribute 12,000 masks throughout the city of Clarkston? Amazing!

And what’s just as amazing is how your generosity keeps us in the amazing business. Amazing kindness. Amazing compassion. Amazing community. This coming Tuesday is giving Tuesday, a national holiday to be amazing. I hope you’ll join us, because I know that together we are amazing and we get amazing things done. Checkout our amazing 2020 update here.

So grateful for each and everyone of you. Please stay safe this Thanksgiving holiday. Be amazing, video chat, give virtual hugs, and wear your mask.

And help us be amazing and click here.
