Giving Thanks

Nov 25, 2015

While we at the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation are grateful to get to work with you throughout the year, this upcoming holiday seemed like a good excuse for a cheesy acrostic poem:

Thank you to
Each and every one of you who, through your contribution of time and talent and other gifts, plays
A crucial role in achieving the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation's
Mission of helping kids—regardless of circumstance—make smart choices for bright, healthy futures.

Okay, that’s not really a poem and there are first graders who could kick my butt in acrostic creativity, but I do mean it!  Whether you're on the field coaching kids through the game of life, driving the bus, teaching in a classroom, showing the true meaning of protect and serve, coordinating the volunteers, or any of the myriad of ways in which you work with and support kids in communities across the country, we couldn’t do it without you!  When you take pride in your work, when you care enough to go the extra mile, whether or not you see the end beneficiaries—know that it matters and that it is appreciated.

Thank you.

We wish you and yours a wonderful Thanksgiving!
