During this week of Thanksgiving, I have so much to be grateful for! I’ll be posting another blog before Giving Tuesday, when I’ll be asking people to consider giving to Juggling for Jude to help kids with cancer, but for now, I’d like to say thank you to everyone who helped make this special honor happen:
I recently received the Outstanding Youth in Philanthropy award from the Association of Fundraising Professionals Golden Gate Chapter. I got to speak on a panel with some big names in Bay Area giving, and it was an incredible opportunity to share my story and learn from people like Roselyn “Cissie” Swig, a long-time philanthropist who was also on the panel.
Click on the photo below to hear to my acceptance speech from the luncheon. I talk about how the importance of youth in philanthropy, and the lifesaving work at St. Jude and some of my patient inspirations.
You can also see an interview with the AFP to learn more about how Juggling for Jude began!
As you gather with friends and family, please keep in mind the kids at St. Jude and their fight against childhood cancer! You can donate HERE any time!
Thank you, and Happy Thanksgiving!
