SHARING YOUR GIFTS WITH OTHERS
When we share our gifts of Time, Talent, Training, Thoughts, and Treasure (Our 5 T’s), we are intentional in transmitting two messages: Kindness Matters and “People care about your education and you can go to amazing colleges and universities!” We are able to convince young people because of your support of these messages. Donations last year exceeded $23,000—for real!
Three of our recent No Boundaries scholarship recipients demand that I delay my retirement plans “until we graduate from college and take over.” I hear them. Therefore, this year we will continue to promote Academic Excellence in urban ZIP codes, increase awareness about Cybersecurity skills development opportunities in ZIP code 78220, and help build the community effort to increase college completion rates on San Antonio’s Eastside.
When I responded to the Obedience Memo I received at the beginning of the century to embark upon this journey, it did not come with instructions. Entering the third decade of the journey excites me because of “donors like you.” I hear that a lot at the end of the PBS News Hour!
Thank you for your Kindness!
