Hello my friends!! I hope this email finds you well.
I wanted to reach out because I had an idea on the one year (how has it been a year!!?) anniversary of this incredible show of support for the Mongellos and Make-A-Wish. One year ago today I was waking up to the most powerful display of community strength I’d ever seen. The work leading up to telling Lou what we’d been able to do for him was one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever been a part of…and the explosion of support that came from every direction once we went public was like nothing I’d ever seen before.
Together we raised more than $60,000. That’s 6 complete wishes. Six families whose lives we’re going to be able to touch forever. Six worlds changed for the better – because of what we can do when we’re inspired by the right guy to #ChooseTheGood.
But you know what? I have a secret.
The link is still live.
So here’s my crazy idea. One year later. Let’s make it seven.
Here’s where you can go to help – or just click the button at the bottom of this message: https://bit.ly/3kDqCr9
If you’ve made it through the last year still kicking. If you’re sick of all of the ugliness and negativity. If you want to show everyone around you why you love your Disney Family so damned much and just do something GOOD – here’s your chance.
#ChoosingTheGood is, for the most part, not a matter of grand gestures. It is made up of micro-kindnesses. You really have to wrap your head around that to understand that the first $60K wasn’t raised in lump sum. It happened because hundreds of you gave what you could give – and whether that was $1 or $1000 didn’t matter. What mattered was our strength as a whole.
Let’s do it again.
With so much gratitude,
