A Holiday Wish
May the end of year giving be all that you have hoped and planned for it to be. This has been a weird year and hopefully, something good will come from it for your organization. Here's to whatever 2021 holds for all of us.
Vulnerability - It Seemed Like The Right Time To Revisit
Brené Brown studies human connection -- our ability to empathize, belong, love. In a poignant, funny talk at TEDxHouston, she shares a deep insight from her research, one that sent her on a personal quest to know herself as well as to understand humanity. As fundraisers, we deal with vulnerability and shame on a daily basis just doing our job. We must understand how these affect us and our donors.
It Occurs To Me
Since writing the last post, I have had to come up with definitive language concerning vaccinated guests at an event. The decision was made to say on the invitation "For the safety of all of our guests we are requesting proof of vaccination upon arrival at the theater." The idea is to accept either the CDC vaccination card or our state's online pass." We will see what the response will be to the invitation and at the event. I will keep you informed.
Please leave a comment, thoughtfully.
