Donors, Volunteers and Friends,
It is a pleasure to have this new and exciting connection method of communicating to you each and every month! I wanted to take this first opportunity to say THANK YOU for all that you do for NBTS to support our research and advocacy. Although we do have talented staff sprinkled across the country, we could not accomplish the amazing work that we do without all of you.
With that in mind, we as an organization can not stand pat and rest on our past success. We need to continue to push forward, expand our reach, raise more dollars and meet new friends. This is where we need to connect with all of you. We recently have sent out an email to a number of participants from our signature events that travel a great distance, recognizing their effort and asking them if they would like to contribute on a level closer to home with a new community event. I want to extend that invitation to ALL of you that have supported us or are looking for a way to support us in the future. YOU are our future. YOUR community event plants a seed that we nurture together to grow into a larger event and a presence in that community. How often do you get a chance to be truly part of the organic growth of an organization? We are not only offering the chance, we will help you every step of the way. Please check out our community event webpage and if you are willing to help please reach out to Ksavelli@braintumor.org and let her know you want to connect.
In the coming months we hope to feature some special donors, teams, volunteers and supporters in the events section of the Connections newsletter. I am sure some of you will be hearing from our great field staff that you work with asking if you would like to share your personal story. Until then, if you have any questions, comments or want to chat more about our growth and expansion, please reach out to me personally at firstname.lastname@example.org (949 633-7878) as I would love to connect with you.
All the best,
