A Time for Kindness

A Time for Kindness

Chapter Leadership Brief 11.19.2020

By Michele Hall-Duncan, AFP-NYC Secretary, CEO and President of enCourage Kids Foundation 

I am pleased to report that I am of the age to receive the AARP Bulletin each month. The November 2020 issue contains the usual articles urging us to reset our finances, avoid scams, and understand Medicare.  It also includes an article about kindness and generosity. “It is only through the giving of oneself to others that we truly live.” This quote by Ethel Percy Andrus, truly resonated with me. It reminded me of how wonderful each of our donors are.

Thanksgiving and Giving Tuesday are less than two weeks away, and the season of giving and hope prompts us once again to tell our unique mission stories. Remember to thank your donors for their extraordinary kindness and generosity during this past year. There were many worthy causes to choose from - and they chose you.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
