Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful for volunteerism. We would not be where we are without so many of you. I am in awe of your personal willingness, that incredible openness to say "yes!" to something out of your routine, something new, something worthy.

There is a lot of talk these days about doing good. Check out a few Target commercials or Bono's (red) campaign. Lots and lots of nice things are said. Lots of good wishes. I love that spirit. However, somebody has to do the work to make those wishes come true.

Thankfully, a small yet mighty band of do gooders stepped up and made Metamorphosis 2008 happen. We extend bountiful gratitude to the new friends of Kyrie's that have saved this day, which we hope will someday save children! Thank you to Tuesday Schmidt, Jen Walker, Kelly Jackson, Amy Smith, Carly Farrell, Karen Schotsch, Michelle McClellan, Cherie Journee and Patrick Sheridan. for being part of something you weren't even aware of this time last year. Thank you for being there tonight to make this event exist. Thank you for offering without our asking; thank you for spending your time working on this instead of a million other things you could have been doing.

We are humbled.

What are you thankful for today?

The event was wonderful. Classy, tasteful and just as amazing as I knew it would be.
