It’s hot. It’s humid. I’m tired of showing up during my rare in office days looking like I took a shower. I’m ready for the Fall.
That’s sort of a weird thing for me to say out loud. As kids, the Fall meant carefree summers became a memory and you were back to the grind of school and activities. As fundraisers, it means the busiest of times is coming, which is saying a lot now that all times seem busy. That said, I think I’ve come to look at the Fall as, yes, a time where I will be at my busiest, but also as a time where people will have unprecedented opportunities to give and contribute to the things they care about. And, lucky us, we get to help them do it!
