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.
On this episode, Maria is chatting with Jessie Coughenour. Jessie is a mom to two daughters, Stella and Emerson. Emerson was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at just 6 months old. She immediately became frustrated with the amount of outdated information on cerebral palsy and wanted to see more research being done.
So...she decided to do something about it.
Jessie joined a 33-mile walking Challenge on Facebook in support of the Cerebral Palsy Alliance Foundation. Within the online community, she used her daily mantra - educate, elevate, advocate - to act as a leader and supporter for so many others, helping move research forward and encouraging early interventions for other children.
Tune in to hear Jessie's story. Emerson even joined us as a special guest!
