Donations of the Heart

FORT WAYNE, INDIANA - So the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer now has a finance wiz focused on the money stuff. Yay, Deb! She’s really cute, works hard, is incredibly smart and wears great shoes. All the important qualifications one needs for such a profession. Or so I thought, when I first met her. I learned in short order that Deb lost her mom to cancer, just like me, and that she shares my passion. We want to find a cure for this disease, and fast. For those of you that think you have to devote every waking moment to make a difference, think again. Foundations, non-profits, churches, all of us need help in ways that won’t consume all of your time or all of your dollars. Deb gives every day every time she helps us wade through the world of non-profit finance. So take a look at your work and realize that if your company does anything for a charity you are part of that generosity. Today matters; even if you don’t get to see some great miracle by the time 5 o’clock rolls around, you might have still changed a life. Ask your company who they help if you are unsure! Thank you, Deb, for doing what you do. We love you.
