Happy holidays from DonorDreams blog!

It is the Friday before a HUGE holiday weekend for most DonorDreams blog subscribers. I’ve been beside myself for the last few weeks trying to figure out an appropriate gift idea for each of you. Ugh! What do you get for 129 of your closest social media blog friends?

I was stumped and getting worried until one of my Facebook friends posted the YouTube video titled “Christmas Food Court Flash MobHallelujah Chorus – Must See!” Then it hit me.

My gift to you is to simply share this YouTube link and wish you a ground breaking 2012 fundraising campaign.

Thanks for subscribing to the DonorDreams blog. As most of you know, 2011 was a “year of change” for me as I resigned my position at Boys & Girls Clubs of America to pursue my dream of opening a nonprofit consulting practice. In doing so, I started this blog in an attempt to “pay it forward” by providing free fundraising ideas, observations, and advice to the resource development universe. In this regard, you’ve all been a part of my transformational year.

All I can say is “Thank You” for such a tremendous gift! I look forward to our 2012 journey together.

I know many of you are probably taking some vacation time next week, but I thought it is worth mentioning that next week’s blog posts will focus on 2012 predictions and fundraising trends. You might want to keep on eye on your email inbox or find those posts when you return to work.

Here’s to your health!

About DonorDreams

Erik got his start working in the non-profit field immediately upon graduation with his masters degree in 1994. His non-profit management and fundraising experience numbers nearly 20 years. His teachable point of view around resource development is influenced by the work of Penelope Burk and those professionals subscribing to a "donor centered" paradigm. Donors have dreams and it is our responsibility to be dream-makers because donors are not ATMs.
