Today we celebrate all those who literally spend their time and money on helping others. Their time is extremely important, their money even more so. The day was created by the Association of Fundraising Professionals in 1985. Fundraising drives many good groups that bring things those less fortunate badly need. Schools operate nearly all after school programs on fundraising. All those candies sold, magazines read and the dozens of other means of fundraising are well known to us. We may be annoyed, at times, but we have to remember that they are for good causes.
How to celebrate – Become, or join, a fundraising group. Support those groups you know need funding. Thank any Philanthropist you know.
