â€œWeâ€™re All in This Together!â€
Itâ€™s Give to the Max Eve and I canâ€™t stop thinking about the song â€œWeâ€™re all in This Togetherâ€ from Disneyâ€™s High School Musical. Sometimes divine moments happen in the strangest places. Last week I was so proud as I watched my daughter sing that song with gusto at her own middle schoolâ€™s version of the musical. Theyâ€™re catchy lyrics that I canâ€™t get out of my head. Truth is like that. Catchy.
As humans weâ€™re so prone to focus on ourselves and our own â€œneeds.â€ Even when weâ€™re trying to do good things for others, we can get so focused on what we â€œneedâ€ to do it. But what if we were more focused on helping others get what they need? If something helps you, then it helps me too! If itâ€™s is good for you, itâ€™s good for me! If you succeed, we all succeed! Lifeâ€™s not a zero-sum competition; itâ€™s a beautiful collaboration. A rising tide raises all the boats.
I think thatâ€™s what Give to the Max Day is all about; not just â€œigniting generosity and growing giving,â€ but reminding us that we are all in this together! We need each other! Inverted Arts has the privilege of partnering with many remarkable organizations that are making this world a better place. But thatâ€™s only half the story. Each organization has the privilege of partnering with generous donors like you who are the fuel that keep these organizations running. We are doing good things – together!
Tomorrow, onÂ Give to the Max Day November 12th, consider being the fuel that keeps these engines running:
Because weâ€™re all in this together,
Inverted Arts President
