Thank you for your support and contributions towards are 2023 Gratitude Challenge Campaign. Your donations totaled $27, 901 and exceeded our goal to raise $25,000. We are grateful for you!
You can still make a donation and download our wheel.
As each year ends, it can be a difficult time as the one we
love remains gone. However, it can also be a time to be
grateful for the time we had with this person as well as a
time to look for the things for which we can be grateful.
While I will always miss my son and cherish what time
I had with him, I am grateful to be able to be part of a
caring organization in Friends for Survival.
Please join me in a donation to the Friends for Survival Gratitude Fundraiser going on now through December 31st.
In order to continue to provide our critical support services, we have set a goal of $25,000 for our year-end appeal.
As the new Executive Director of Friends for Survival, I am honored to have the opportunity to lead this organization into the next chapter. As the holidays approach and we miss our loved ones, it’s sometimes hard to remember the good that is still around us. I’ve found it helpful to practice mindful gratitude. I encourage you to use our annual Gratitude Wheel to help you visualize the good still around, and try mindful gratitude for yourself.
I’m starting off my Gratitude Wheel with being grateful for founder, Marilyn Koenig, and so many of you who have poured your hearts into creating a true resource and gift to our community. As I wrap my arms around Friends for Survival and see the increasing demand for our services, I also want to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support. As just one example, we have gone from receiving an average of 70 new monthly support requests just one year ago, to now more than 100 new requests each month. Your generosity allows us to provide critical services of comfort, companionship and education to those in need. Our facilitators, staff and volunteers are making a difference in the lives of those who need someone who can understand their loss and grief.
If you have found value with our newsletter, meetings and other services, we hope you’ll make a donation so we can continue supporting you and provide those life-changing services to new families as well. Thank you for your generosity and support.
