I just hit submit on my last grant review & after reading 25 grant proposal submitted to the Monat Gratitude Foundation -I truly feel both a privilege and a huge responsibility as a Gratitude Ambassador. We were invited to help discern which grant proposals will receive generous funding to extend and expand their reach.
This work feels very personal to me, and in a way a full circle moment as I once needed grant funding to do non-for profit work, and now I am able to help fund others doing amazing and hard things in the world.
Friends, there are so many brave and courageous people doing brilliant work in this world & I feel so blessed to have been a part of this grant cycle.
This is also why I love the company I get to partner with- best product YES! but it is about so much more. Monat knows that gratitude changes who we are and they stand behind that, not only by saying it but by funding and giving back to organizations affecting change in the world. My kids would come in my office, read over my shoulder about these organizations and the issues they see and how they are brave enough to use their time, gifts, and resources to make the world better for others. I hope and pray as I talked about it with my kids they also start dreaming about the impact they can have- we can choose gratitude & impact. Always.
Thank you Monat Gratitude for this opportunity & if YOU know an organization doing good & brave work in the world please reach out to me and check out the grant program here!! I would love to send you information on applying next round!
I feel so honored to be invited to be a Gratitude Ambassador.
