We’re halfway through our June campaign, Silver Learnings. Please remember that your donation is what lets us do any of the grant-making that you’ve been reading about. Thank you so much for making that possible!
Silver Learnings is all about life-lessons. No matter how “hard” or “easy” any of us had it during the pandemic, there has been plenty of wisdom to acquire during this difficult time. Whether it’s how to pay the bills, make a sourdough recipe, learn a new game to play with the kids, or how to make a difference and help others get through these tough times, each of us has a story to tell and Silver Learnings is about sharing them.
This week’s story is not a happy one. Keron Siriri is a young man I met who lives in Uganda, a place that overflows with poverty and, now, with the coronavirus. It’s not an easy read, but one that teaches us something important about this pandemic. Read Keron’s writing here.
In case you have some catching up to do, here are links to our other guest writers: Molly Rodriguez, Joe Casario, Evangelo Maniotis and Marta Kauffman. We hope you’re enjoying Silver Learnings as much as we are!
We continue to miss Jonah and to feel grateful: a) that we had him in our lives; and, b) that he’s inspired us to do good stuff in his name. The Jonah Maccabee Foundation has promised to honor Jonah’s life by “turning love into action.” We are humbled to be your partner in working for sustained meaningful change in our society.
Thank you for supporting our Silver Learnings campaign.
