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 Kirsty Peart who received a triple-negative breast cancer diagnosis during the pandemic.
Kirsty found so much comfort and solace in Maggie's Centres that she joined a 50-mile running challenge on Facebook in support of the organization.
Despite her aversion to running, Kirsty ended up running 75 miles thanks to all the support, motivation, warmth, and encouragement she experienced in the online community.
Tune in to hear Kirsty's story.
