As I was preparing to write this piece, I was asked to participate in #ChalkAboutLove as part of #LoveIsRespect campaign during Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month (#TDVAM). My 5th and 6th grade English teacher responded to my social media post with a quote from Francesco Petrarca, “Love accomplishes all things.” That got me thinking about all of the things the love of humanity (philanthropy) expressed by donors and supporters make possible for our clients and staff.

I am moved daily by the acts of respect and love our donors and supporters show our clients. I see people go out of their way to make our clients feel safe, cared for, and deserving of respect. I also see the respect with which couples in healthy, loving relationships treat one another, and by extension our staff and clients.

Everyone deserves to feel the positive power of love. Thank you for helping our clients recognize that they deserve love and respect, too.
