The Philanthropy Phlog is coming: Part 2


image

Last week I was on vacation in Michigan, and I decided to test a theory that I’ve had for a long time. I believe that philanthropy is something that occurs all around us every day, and we’re usually way too busy to notice it.  Sometimes, it is hard to put it in words, which makes it difficult to blog about. So, I decide that I would try to take pictures of “every day” philanthropy while I was on vacation and share it with you this week.

Today’s picture is obviously of a blood drive poster. While bumming around the downtown square, we stepped into a coffee shop for a quick pick-me-up beverage. How many times have you busily zipped into such an establishment and didn’t take the time to read the event posters? So, many of those events are sponsored by non-profit organization.

As you have probably guessed, this week’s series of philanthropy pictures will lead up to an announcement tomorrow. Yes, it probably has something to do with something called a “phlog”. Stay tuned and please take a brief moment to enjoy what I consider the “every day pictures of philanthropy” this week.

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.
