Giving Back to the Community

I am a very lucky person.

I have had very good people in my life–people who have loved me and supported me.  My family is healthy and happy. I’ve had good teachers.

One of the ways I celebrate my good fortune is to give back to the community that has supported me. In 2021, I will donate a portion of my income to two organizations. By working with me, you will be part of this circle of gratitude.

EDS Wisconsin

EDS Wisconsin does great work supporting people affected by Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS). They have generously helped me by providing resources and insights about EDS.

Domestic Abuse Intervention Services (DAIS)

DAIS has two missions: to provide support to domestic violence survivors and their families and to help raise awareness about domestic violence. Years ago, I became aware of DAIS because they helped my friend’s sister-in-law. Sadly, she did not survive her abuse but as I heard the story, I was moved about how much DAIS had tried to help. Women need this help and I’m proud to support DAIS.

Full disclosure: I don’t have any formal donation procedure. Sometime before year end I will update my bookkeeping and donate a portion of my income. Just know that by working with me, you’ll be supporting two very good organizations.
