It's Giving Tuesday, November 30th!
We've broken through our practice of delivering the Desert NewsFlash on the 1st of the month at 6 a.m. The reason? It's November 30th! It's Giving Tuesday!
Today is an international day of giving, so we wanted to be in on that message. And, of course, we, too, are happily giving!
We're giving by giving thanks to those who have supported CDRI. Thank you to our volunteers, the visitors, CDRI's members, the individual donors, and the granting foundations who have awarded CDRI with generous grants in 2021 and previous years.
We're giving thanks to CDRI's volunteers this Saturday, December 4th, with the Volunteer Appreciation Dinner, along with special recognition to our Vital Volunteers.
And we're giving thanks by giving end-of-year bonuses to the CDRI team.
We're giving thanks to the individual donors and the granting foundations who have seen CDRI worthy of receiving their donations.
We're giving thanks for the thoughtful gifts, like the birdseed, the oranges for the Orioles, mineral water for the team, and See's chocolates, the home-grown vegetables, the personal notes, and for the time that so many of you took to post the great reviews on TripAdvisor, Google Business, and Great Nonprofits. All of those "things" are meaningful. Thank you!
Finally, on this Giving Tuesday, we are giving thanks for your thoughtfulness, your friendship, and for your giving this Tuesday and every day.
