I could write the longest blog post in the world, listing all of the achievements and successes that have happened this year because of the nonprofit world. For the sake of it being readable, I will just share a few. Below are nonprofits that I admire who have done great things this year.
- A Sense of Home created over 60 homes for foster youth that have “aged out” of the system in the one-year they have been in existence!
- Nashville Rescue Mission as of August served an average of 1721 meals daily/53,338 monthly.
- Marine Mammal Center’s Ke Kai Ola hospital has only been open for 15 months and has already admitted more than 1,100 monk seals (that’s more than 1 percent of the total Hawaiian monk seal population).
- Habitat for Humanity’s first A Brush With Kindness Week brought together more than 2,000 volunteers and helped more than 150 families in 24 states.
- My client, the Alliance for Children’s Rights, has served approximately 8,700 foster children and youth this year in L.A. County.
And last but definitely not least…
- Your Organization. Think about the nonprofit world as a whole and how many achievements have been made. How much change has been created! Now think about all that your organization has done, and that you, personally have done to help further your organization’s mission. I know you’re busy, but I think you should take a moment to celebrate that.
