We have all kinds of weeks: “show weeks” (when our clients have weekend public events), planning weeks, production weeks, and “just-get-it-done” weeks.
This week has been a “nice” week, filled with meaningful work that makes us feel… nice.
On Monday night, the Women’s Housing Coalition hosted hundreds of guests at a Twilight Garden Party fundraiser (which we planned and coordinated). The gods always look out for our clients—the dark skies and downpour cleared out 90 minutes before the start of the event. WHC supporters enjoyed a lavish buffet and a signature cocktail (which we enjoyed tasting and tweaking a few weeks ago), and heard moving stories of how WHC helps homeless women become independent and return to leading productive, fulfilling lives with their children.
On Tuesday, we helped Business Volunteers (formerly Business Volunteers Unlimited Maryland) announce its new name and identity, and kick-off the celebration of its 10th anniversary. We have long—supported Business Volunteers’ mission to strengthen the community by connecting people and businesses with nonprofits that need their help and developing active civic leaders.
Last night, Rabbi David Rosen spoke about religious tolerance and pluralism to an overflow crowd at the Institute of Christian & Jewish Studies 25th anniversary lecture series. We were delighted to help promote this event and encourage the important conversation.
This afternoon, we are all off to the Gwynns Falls Trail, a local greenway of parks and landmarks, to volunteer our services in beautifying the trail. It will be nice to be outdoors, but we are most excited to contribute to the upkeep of a great Baltimore recreation area.
We are having a nice time.
