#GivingTuesday

December 1

Taken from A 1-HOUR CRASH COURSE:

Then, as John D. Rockefeller, one of the most solicited men in history, said many years ago, the "duty of giving is as much his as is the duty of asking yours."


In fact, Rockefeller's gracious outlook on solicitors, is worth recounting here:


"When a solicitor comes to you and lays on your heart the responsibility that rests so heavily on his; when his earnestness gives convincing evidence of how seriously interested he is; when he makes it clear that he knows you are no less anxious to do your duty in the matter than he is, that you are just as conscientious, that he feels sure all you need is to realize the importance of the enterprise and the urgency of the need in order to lead you to do your full share in meeting it - he has made you his friend and has brought you to think of giving not as a duty but as a privilege."


The enterprise is important... The need is urgent... Donate to Loudoun Cares while you still have time...Thank you, friend.
