The holidays are a time for giving. It’s no surprise that nonprofits see an increase in donations during the month of December. Whether you’re giving a donation in someone’s name as a gift, giving in memory of someone, or just supporting a nonprofit, those of us in the nonprofit world appreciate it.
Earlier this year, Family Builders held our annual fundraising luncheon. This year, we called it “The Gift of Hope.” The reason is because we really believe that when you donate to Family Builders, you’re helping to give that gift of hope to someone else.
The writer Robert Brault is quoted as saying, “You find hope the same way you find happiness. You give it to someone else and borrow a little of it back.”
That’s what we’re all about!
In our organization, we have to deal with the ugly realities of abuse in our community. But what really gets us out of bed in the morning is the power that comes from that gift of hope.
If you’re like many others, you have some vague sense of hope’s importance. But the families we serve know that its true value is realized when you lose it.
Our organization’s purpose is to restore that hope! We work to end child abuse and domestic violence in our communities through proven programs that educate, prepare, and restore Oklahomans and their families.
A broken family is one that has lost hope. We see it every day! But we work to build healthy, loving families so that hope can be restored.
If you choose to donate to Family Builders this holiday season, we would obviously appreciate it. But even if you don’t, we hope that you will share with others what you know about our organization.
And if you haven’t joined us yet at a Discover Family Builders tour, we would love to have you. That lunch hour is probably the most efficient way to get an overview of what we do and how we give that gift of hope. Please contact us and we can get you more information about an upcoming tour.
