“During this season of thanks and giving, and in recognition of your compassion for those in need, AmeriCares has received a contribution in your name to help with our Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. This thoughtful gesture was made by _______________. “
Gratitude is one of those ideas out there in the universe these days. But how to be grateful in the midst of so much plenty? Excess spending and gift giving doesn’t feel neutral anymore; it sets my gratitude back a few notches. But the thought, and actual giving, behind a card like this moves gratitude forward.
And, here’s a bonus. Although I don’t know anyone directly effected by Hurricane Sandy, I’ve fallen in love with the little boy on the cover of the card. That’s got to be good for the universe.
