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 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.
