If you’ve been following along, then you know we have covered all sorts of gifts. Some were expensive, some were nearly free, many were food-related, and a few others were personalized.
Donations have been just as varied and many of the organizations were new to me. I didn’t know about them and learning about the work they do, and the people they help has become one of the highlights of my week.
If you’d like to support me, you can send me your gift ideas or suggestions for nonprofit organizations that are doing great work where you are. You can also become an annual supporter or a nonprofit supporter by visiting my podcast page.
You can also share the show with someone you know. I try to keep it positive and share a bit of the good work going on in the world. Who couldn’t use more of that?
Gift of the Week:
This week’s gift is business-related. It’s a thank you gift for a job well done.
Being a consultant means I get to work with people I know and like and enjoy working with. One of my clients, V.I.P. Tours of New York has been updating their messaging and it was time to decide if they wanted to update or re-create their website. The only person for the job was Jenny Belanger of Jenny B Designs.
It went off without a hitch! The new site is fabulous, and it was done on schedule and with such ease for everyone involved.
As a thank you I gave Jenny a gift card to a local bookstore near where she lives. I love supporting local bookstores. I purchased a card from bookshop.org so the local store will receive credit when Jenny makes her purchase.
This is a great alternative that I didn’t know existed. It’s a perfect way to support locally owned stores.
Donation of the Week:
I’m glad to support both groups, but it took much too long to figure out how to make a donation. I am motivated and will look until I figure it out, but others may not. People visit the site for other reasons and may not even know they can donate. Nonprofits: Please make it easier for people to support you.
Libraries do so much more for a community than just loan books. I hope that wherever you live, you have access to a great library and if you can, consider contributing.
Be sure to listen for the update to the week 11 episode. Thanks to Mal’s Palz for the t-shirt they sent.
