We know it’s difficult sometimes to do fundraising, even for a cause you believe in strongly. Most of us are uncomfortable asking our friends for money, and most of us are a bit short on cash for contributing ourselves. So how to extend maximum generosity with minimum discomfort?
There are ways… our longtime Ama Ghar friend Margaret Fabian’s California book group, the Ross Valley Readers, decided that instead of their traditional holiday gift exchange, they would pool their resources and send a donation check to a charity of their choice. This year was Margaret’s turn to choose, and we were the lucky recipients.
The result of their generosity? New school books for the Ama Ghar kids – maybe that’s what being a Reader is really all about.
