Hitting The Goal!
Greetings! I read stories here every day but thought this one could help inspire someone out there.
I run a non-profit and all of the money for our staff, programs and operations are raised through memberships and fundraising events. Due to COVID our largest fundraiser had to be virtual for the second time in a row. Internally we set a goal of $175,000 but some people thought it was going to be a challenge because of being virtual and people not being able to buy sponsorships as they usually do.
Three weeks out from the event and we were struggling. Only 33% to our goal. I took a deep breath and thanked the Universe for all of the sponsorships, tickets, and donations we received to get us to our goal! I took out my calendar and wrote the amount of money we wanted to raise by the end of the month, our goal amount. Then I let it go and knew it was coming. I stayed postured and thankful for all the money people were willing to give.
Well, the last two weeks we raised all of the remaining funds to hit our internal goal, a whole week early!!!! Thank you to the Universe and thank you for the belief that everything is possible!
I hope this helps someone know that what you believe, are thankful for, and focus on will come to you! Now I am on a mission to give more through my work and programs and bring about more great things for not only my job but my life!
