Day 60, Lingering thoughts…
Exciting Update: We have just past $4000 and we have more donations coming in. We are getting so close to our target folks, lets give this one last push and see if we can go all the way:). There is still time to spread the word. Lets give it a try.
As hard as it is to say,…This is it, our last official blog. We would like to thank everyone for having made this an unforgettable experience. Our service providers, donors, volunteers, sponsors, Quaff Cafe who was so amazingly cooperative with us regarding the auction event, everyone who attended the auction, and everyone else who encouraged us with their enthusiastic comments and helped us get the word out on what we were about. It has been a unique and rewarding journey and to help commemorate that, we have been asking everyone to share with us their most memorable TW4H moments. We will keep updating this blog as we receive all your answers, so be sure to let us know about your favourite moments if you have not already done.
My most touching moment is ever time I want to give up, I receive another email praising our good work or a new service provider on board. We are very blessed with all the people we met along the way.
Thank you for every single person who has helped us.
AGO, Mark Savel, Ryan Shorts, all our service providers, Karen Au, my core team, Katherine, Kat, Kilim, Jeremy, Rox, Marisa. People showed up at the event, Carol, Quaff Cafe, Mark from Rightsleeve, and all other sponsors.
Watching the TW4H progress has been a rewarding experience, and I’m proud to be acquainted with such a dedicated team!
Favourite memory: meeting Elliot online and having the opportunity to learn about TW4H!
Most interesting memory: seeing my face posted on the website next to my services offered, in contrast with all the other professional logos. It’s brought on a new perspective on personal branding!
*One act of kindness at a time…
Cheers, guys Thanks for everything!
Our first blog was a defining moment. The intention to help was crystallized and took form.
There were so many great parts to TW4H, but I really enjoyed being part of such a dedicated and intelligent team. What TW4H accomplished in such a short amount of time is something to be proud of. Congratulations TW4H!
Throughout the 60 day journey with TW4H, every single moment was precious to me. The moment I got a call from Elliot. The moment I started typing the very first blog entry. The moment I realized I was part of an amazing, inspiring and dedicated group of people who never gave up in the face of unexpected challenges. The moment of looking back at the sixty day journey and realizing that I learned, experienced and affirmed that we have the power and the tools to make a difference.
I don’t know where to start.
I concurred with Elliot — we have been encouraged and blessed by the strong support from our donors, supporters, a network of amazing volunteers. We faced various, many challenges on a weekly bases. There were times we don’t know if we will be anywhere close to our goal. Yet, we always find help and support to solve the problems.
Personally I was so touched that so many people attended the silent auction night. The weather didn’t stop people from attending and supporting Haiti.
Most importantly, 65 days after the earthquake, people have not forgotten Haiti. Please continue to support and help rebuild Haiti
