It's that time of year again. A time to reflect, give, share, and grow - to express gratitude.
In light of the giving season, we’re flipping the script! Instead of chatting with nonprofit thought leaders, we are highlighting the most touching stories of individuals who fiercely support nonprofits and their “why.”
Because without supporters, nonprofits couldn’t exist.
During the 12-day series, Maria will be exploring topics surrounding: hardships, perseverance, fundraising, social media, and the importance and value of online community.
In this episode, Maria is chatting with Jennifer Carvalho-Silva Lopez. Earlier this year, Jennifer lost her brother to ALS after a short 7-month long battle. He left behind a beautiful and loving family - a wife, an 8-year-old son, and a 10-year-old daughter.
Jennifer decided to turn her pain into positivity in honor of her brother, who was always helping others. She participated in a walking challenge on Facebook in support of her local ALS Florida Chapter and even encouraged her entire family to do the challenge with her.
Jennifer is a fierce supporter of all nonprofits, and her hopes for the future of others suffering and finding a cure for ALS is inspiring.
Tune in to hear Jennifer's story.
