A good reminder

I've taken the past couple of weeks to concentrate on the least favored aspect of the youth workers of youth unlimited: fundraising. It is hard work to ask people for money. Our job is about serving people in need not being served by others. It can feel awkward.

This past year has moved my time table into hyper drive and i had little time to make many presentations. There have been so many amazing things that have happened over this past year and I want to be able to continue to be in the front lines of youth work so i need funding to do that. That's the reality.

What i am being reminded of as I share with people is not what I expected and its not awkward. It is passion for youth and passion to connect people with the work that were doing. Fundraising is actually re-ignighting the fire within me. So I'm not feeling award about sharing my need for help. I'm feeling thankful. It is a good reminder.
