A few weeks ago, we caught the note below from Corey, a student and budding musician. Corey was thanking a donor who had just provided guitars for his classroom:
Thank you for the guitars! I love playing on the guitar. My favorite song on the guitar is “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star.” Music is my favorite subject. My favorite singers are Wilson Pickett, Jackson 5, Luther Vandross, The Pointer Sisters… When I grow up I want to be a singing doctor. To make everyone happy.
Corey reminded us of something so easy to forget: gratitude is a gift. And at DonorsChoose.org, “thank you” is more than a gift; it’s our business model.
