Working for the YMCA, a charity, there are times where you can be overwhelmed by people's generosity. Our YMCA was built through the generosity of people wanting to provide something positive for our community. Our YMCA meets its mission everyday through the generosity of people giving to help others. Even being surrounded by generosity all the time it can still overwhelm you. It only took two days for our ADOPT A FAMILY project to feel overwhelming (in a very good way).
Day 1 we had 81 swimmers / $62.50
Day 2 we had 85 swimmers / $214.65
2-day total $277.15.
Pretty overwhelming. There were some parents and alumni parents that chipped in with some larger 1-time donations, but even without those it was an overwhelming day. The majority has been swimmers with coins or wadded up dollar bills.
Let's keep it going. Let's keep finding a way to make a difference. A little bit at a time. Everything matters. Harness the power of "the many." Maybe help a 2nd or 3rd family too.
