Of course being a part of a not-for-profit organization we are used to agencies and organizations making visits. offering donations, organizing parties and the like, and do not get me wrong, we will appreciate and even count on the generation of each penny, each second, each individual item that is donated; however, to have a group like yours put so much heart and soul into the very last detail and keep your own mission at the forefront is unsurpassable.
