30 DAYS OF GENEROSITY
“. . . You have been treated generously, so live generously.”
-Matthew 10:8, The Message
Huge Thanks . . .
Early in February 202t0, on behalf of he board of Rooted Generosity, the not-for-profit founded in the memory of Jordan Slagle, John Mark and Mona Slagle reached out (via hand delivery and snail-mail) to a number of family and friends with an important invitation . . .
The board asked folks to consider participating in a unique celebration of Jordan’s thirtieth birthday – which is March 12, 2020.
As part of marking this milestone birthday, Jordan’s fourth in heaven, the board invited folks to “live generously” by joining together to sponsor each day of March. By asking people touched by Jordan’s life and story to gather to contribute 300.00 for each day of the month, Rooted Generosity will be able leverage generosity – and craft Jordan’s legacy - by funding scholarships, recovery journeys, and acts of generosity for many years to come.
The response has been truly amazing.
As of today, because of the overwhelming love and generosity of many, 23 days of March have been fully sponsored. We know Jordan is happy and grateful – as are we - beyond measure.
For the entire month of March 2020, we invite you to “live generously” in Jordan’s memory. Please commit to join us in some of these daily acts of generosity, all across March.
At the close of March, you can share stories about how your generosity unfolds on any one of these days by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your stories will give us much needed strength and solace - as we will each miss Jordan’s physical presence more deeply than can be imagined during days surrounding his significant milestone birthday.
A VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU TO OUR MARCH 2020 - 30 DAYS OF GENEROSITY
