Year of Sharing
We would like to sincerely thank each of you for sharing your nominations and stories of inspiration during our “2020/2021 Year of Sharing” initiative. Because of your thoughtfulness, together we have been able to honor nonprofit organizations and people who are making real differences in our world during a time when we need it the most.
We’ve curated a list of organizations that are doing great good in their communities. And, as we honor our final “Year of Sharing” gift recipient, Susan B. Komen® South Carolina, we ask that you join us as we celebrate the altruism and humanity of people like you, who bring so much light to our world.
“FOR THERE IS ALWAYS LIGHT, IF ONLY WE’RE BRAVE ENOUGH TO SEE IT. IF ONLY WE’RE BRAVE ENOUGH TO BE IT.”
