For those who do not know, Big Day of Giving is a day in which the Sacramento community comes together to support nonprofits and the work they do to make the Sacramento region the place we know and love as home. As board members of nonprofits and leaders in our community, we have a responsibility to embody the values we espouse, to do what we ask of others, and to lead by example. In that way, one of the most powerful actions we can take is to do what we are asking of our community: to give generously for the benefit of others, to support the causes and values we wish to see more of in the world.
Our passion at The Wish List Project is lifting the youth in our community, providing valuable opportunities for underprivileged kids and teens, helping the next generation succeed so they in turn can extend goodwill to others.
As the Chairperson of The Wish List Project Board of Directors, it is so important that I live by example in my personal life, embodying the aspirations of our organization on a personal level before I can ask others to do the same and “buy into” our mission. When we are gone, it will be our values and actions that those around us remember. This year, let’s leave a legacy of generosity and inspire others to do the same.
Please help The Wish List Project reach our goal of raising $5,000 for young people in our community during Big Day of Giving on May 4th.
