Thirty Days of Thanks – Non-profits

I am so very thankful for all the non-profits I get to work with through Schipul. These organizations are truly trying to change the world and “do good.”  There is no better honor than to get to work with organizations that are admired for their passion and curiosity.  Because of these organizations, I am inspired to care a little more.

A few non-profits that I am super thankful to know are:

I am thankful for The Myelin project and the difference they make.  They are a small group of people making a huge difference in the world. Everyday, no matter the gloom, they are continually devoted to curing some of the most devastating diseases in the world.  Working with The Myelin project is my greatest pleasure.

The Myelin Project’s mission is aimed at funding the research to find a cure for demyelinating diseases, such as the leukodystrophies which are genetic and multiple sclerosis which is acquired.

I am thankful for The Children’s Museum of Houston.  They are a place that welcomes any child and creates an experience so grand, it is unforgettable.   I am so grateful to be part of such a wonderful place for children to learn, grow and be inspired.  The love they have for children and learning is beyond anything else I have ever seen.  You see this when you go to the Museum and witness the excitement on a child’s face. Children are our future and The Children’s Museum of Houston totally gets that. I am thankful I get to work with them on their web presence and marketing. I love Shannon Gilliam and Henry Yao. It’s people like CM Houston who make the world a better place.

I am even more grateful knowing that I have been blessed with a healthy child that will grow up knowing The Children’s Museum of Houston as her playground.

The Houston Zoo is also tops on my list of non-profits to thank.  I thank them for their love of animals and their passion to make the Houston Zoo one of the coolest places to see in Houston.  I am thankful they are leaders in conservation. It’s the things that seem little to us, but are completely important and vital to our lives as human beings. They are rock stars at saving the earth one frog at a time.

The Houston Zoo gives residents and visitors from afar a place to escape the concreteness and see animals we would never get to see otherwise. Thank you Houston Zoo for being a wonder.

  1. Love love love EVERY non-profit we work with, from the clients like YMCA, NPTA, theFund, and ASTD, to groups like Spacetaker, Livestrong, and Musicheals that we have the pleasure of hanging out with in the community. So many amazing organizations doing so much good – it's an honor to be associated with each and every one.
