Kimberly’s Column: Thankful for a lot this year

Hello everybody,

Hard to believe it’s already Thanksgiving! It’s such a great
holiday. I know I have a lot to be thankful for this year.

I’ve enjoyed everything about this year. We’ve had fundraising
success, shared a lot with others, met tons of interesting folks,
and haven’t had any negative events on US soil (despite a lot of
scary events elsewhere).

I’m thankful for family, friends, good neighbors, all the love in
the world around us, and hopeful that the future will provide
healing for all the pain and strife in the world.

What are you thankful for this year?

That’s a question we always answer in turn around our holiday
table. It’s wonderful to hear the children each year, as they
grow toward adulthood, expand their viewpoint to encompass an ever
larger slice of the world around them.

I hope you also have a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.

This issue features a guest article on “The Power of Thank You
in Fundraising and in Life” by Katherine Khalife.

The Power of Thank You – In Fundraising and in Life

by Katherine Khalife

“I was in line at the grocery store the other day. The cashier
was really rude to people. When it was my turn, I handed her my
money, she grabbed it, gave me my change, and that was it. I
couldn’t help myself. I asked, ‘Would it kill you to at least say
thank you?’ She looked up and snapped, ‘It’s printed on your
