A Letter of Gratitude
As we wrap up November, the month of thankfulness, I’m especially aware of how hard our membership works for the mission of Autism Speaks and I’m so grateful for your efforts. This month we embarked on our third annual Letters of Love campaign and it did not disappoint! This campaign has become Alpha Xi Delta’s signature effort each November. The messages of love shared by our Sisterhood inspired the donations that help fuel the mission of Autism Speaks. I couldn’t be more proud or grateful for the work done this November.
In the 10 years of our partnership, Alpha Xi Delta has raised over $10 million to help fund the mission of Autism Speaks. Alpha Xi Delta is playing a major role in enhancing the lives of those affected by autism today and accelerating a spectrum of solutions for tomorrow. Can you imagine what our Founders would think of this important work? I’m sure they would share in my pride.
Some of us joined Alpha Xi Delta with a personal connection to autism and some of us did not. The one thing we all do share is our connection in Alpha Xi Delta and our dedication to philanthropy, service in our communities and the care we share for our Sisters. Let us always keep that dedication and a special amount of care for our Sisters affected by autism. I hope as we round out this month of thankfulness, that we can reflect and be grateful for the work already done and excited and engaged to continue to forge the path ahead with great amounts of love.
We’ve already far surpassed the original Letters of Love goal for 2019. In fact, we’ve increased the goal multiple times! The excitement has been contagious and the commitment to the mission has been inspiring. We look forward to reporting the final amount raised by year end to allow for all mailed donations to arrive. If you haven’t yet sent your Letters of Love- you have a few hours left before November ends! Please visit www.alphaxidelta.org/lettersoflove to make your gift. This signature campaign was started to honor Suzanne Wright’s memory and I have no doubt that the work we are doing is making her memory proud. Thank you for your continued commitment to Autism Speaks and to Alpha Xi Delta!
In the bonds,
