From our early days until now, our friends and neighbors have been there for us. There's a group of women in Los Altos who sew 30 beautiful blankets for our youth every fall and give each of them a $20 Target gift card for Christmas. There are others who send us generous donations. One couple has gifted us $10,000 every fall since 2011 and has had it matched by Google. Yes, that means up to $20,000 total! Annual. Wow! Yet it's the follow-up phone conversation that's priceless. And there have been family trusts and foundations who send eye-popping checks without our having to do a thing. No grueling grant application to write. Unheard of! The funds arrive in amounts that are sobering in their kind-hearted generosity. Our only fundraiser is a letter that goes out in November. That way our time and talent is truly devoted to our youth. And every year people give in amounts we know must stretch them, and some of the checks arrive with sweet notes or funny comments in the memo line. Love that! A few give monthly, which they'll probably never realize how much we appreciate. And one lady always - I mean ALWAYS - is the last person to send her PayPal gift. How does she always know?! So, yes, your gifts matter. They help us do what we do. Yes, they are deeply appreciated and the sentiment behind them is treasured. Thank you.
