Having worked in the nonprofit sector for many years, I have definitely had my share of golf balls. Yes, you read that correctly, I said golf balls. I’m not talking about the freebies given away at a charity golf tournament, I’m talking about that feeling you get when you’ve witnessed something so powerful that it moves you to tears, and in the process of trying to suppress them you get this feeling that you’ve just swallowed a golf ball.
Well I just had a little golf ball after reading something in the July 2013 issue of Fundraising Success magazine. It was the “editor’s note” feature, written by Margaret Battistelli Gardner. It reminded me of the power of a good story, some well-placed appreciation, and of humanity.
I hope that you’ll click the link, read her story, and know that we share in her admiration for you and what you do.
