I received this email over the weekend. It's from the librarian at the boys school.
Hi Natalie -
I just wanted to thank you again for your help at our recent Book Fair. It's nice that you came back to use for another round!
We truly could not do this without the help of our volunteers.
This weekend, I'm at school putting together a big book order with so many wonderful and useful titles... the kids will love them! And all of it is purchased with Book Fair proceeds.
Your help truly made a difference!
BTW, your boys are awesome.
In my profession, demonstrating thanks and gratitude is essential for success. Of course that's the case in most areas of life but especially fundraising. I've sent thousands of thank you notes and cards and receiving this email is a nice reminder of the impact stewardship can have.
