A Time for Thanks and Reflection

The days are getting shorter, and the weather colder, here on the East coast. It is a season of twinkling lights from candles and strings, a time to reflect on the last year, and to surround oneself with family, friends, and food. It is a season cloaked in abundance for so many, but that abundance should never be taken for granted.

As the year draws quickly to a close, it's a season of goodwill and thanks, no matter what your traditions might be, so here's a list of some things the people who make up Eliminate Poverty NOW are thankful for:
  • We are blessed to work with extraordinary people who inspire us every day, from our partners in Africa to our Advisory Board Members. They dedicate their lives to making a better life for others.
  • We’re thankful to our volunteers, especially our Board of Directors. Their generosity ensures 100% of public donations go to work directly in Africa.
  • We are truly grateful to the 150 individuals and organizations whose support makes our work possible. 
  • We’re thankful to be reminded daily how fortunate we are for things we take for granted:  food, clothing, shelter, education, medical care--the list goes on and on. 
  • We’re thankful for the opportunity to make a difference, that we who have so much can help those who have so little.
And, of course, YOU. We are so very grateful that you read this blog and keep up with our news, for the support you offer in any way you can. We've said it before, and we'll keep on saying it: EPN's work and success truly would not  be possible without you, and for that, we thank you.

Here's a list of some of EPN's highlights from the last year:
