Each year at this time we all reflect. We don't just reflect on the last year but often times on our entire lives. So should nonprofit organizations. We should carefully reflect upon what our supporters truly need and want and focus our missions and programs on those needs and wants.
Breath of Hope has been evaluating itself as a nonprofit charity and we do so with much more criticism within than anyone could do from outside. Often we hear from families and other nonprofits how the larger nonprofits are not personable, they have lost their sense of mission and do not focus on the ever changing needs of their supporters. We are taking that to heart and will be unveiling a new program to focus on families regionally or within areas to give more local support. This will not negate our national programs but hopefully strengthen local support initiatives and fundraising which would keep funding close to home and truly benefit those within the community affected by congenital diaphragmatic hernia.
We hope each and every one of you remembers the blessings of 2013 and has hope for 2014.
