Today's Kindness #379: August 17, 2023
☮️Support A Non-Profit☮️
On August 17th, National Nonprofit Day (NND) recognizes the goals and positive impacts nonprofits have on communities and the world.
Somewhere a volunteer reads to schoolchildren. At the same time, a patient receives steady medication. A lawyer provides legal services for low-income individuals. A lost soul's life is remembered with dignity, thanks to a nonprofit funeral home. Elsewhere, a first-time homebuyer moves into his own home. NND reminds us that each of these scenes is possible thanks to the nonprofit sector. It's the result of the work performed by capable people and organizations.
Through nonprofits, awareness, research, and aid reach the people who need it most. Nonprofits also generate tremendous benefits for their surrounding communities and the broader world.
The observance encourages you to take some time to learn more about and support local nonprofits. Understand that the funding for these organizations often satisfies more than the mission statement. Discover all the benefits of supporting a nonprofit. Use #NationalNonprofitDay to share on social media!
