We’ve got a wonderful opportunity to further our mission at SpiritWorks and increase the power of your donation. For the next 10 days, beginning today, October 10, 2010, JustGive, our partner in online charitable giving, will be adding $10 to every donation made for the following 10 days. Since the inception of SpiritWorks Foundation we have received $835 through JustGive and their partners. As JustGive is celebrating 10 years of online giving, they are once again offering SpiritWorks the opportunity to”give hope and help to many in need”.
Please follow the link below, www.justgive.org/10years, to make your donation. Each single donation from each donor will qualify for the additional $10 from JustGive. Donations as small as $10 are accepted, donations as large as you wish are welcome.
Thank you for your support.
I participated in a wonderful event yesterday afternoon. It was a presentation from the Literacy for Life Program in Williamsburg for a group of probationers who are hoping to improve their self sufficiency through participating in a health literacy program. I was very impressed by the man who shared his experience with the literacy program and his gratitude for having done so. He credited his ability to get better jobs, use the computer, and improve his self esteem to having been a “learner”. One of our guys commented, “I listened to every word he said” which for those I work with is often unheard of. I’m excited about the partnership that was formed between SpiritWorks and the Literacy for Life Program. Through our collective efforts, and those of other partner organizations in the community we will make a positive difference in the lives of men and women, supporting their desire to improve the quality of their lives as well as their personal health and wellness. Stay tuned for further information, especially how you might get involved.
Until next time, thanks for listening.
