Sure, they're crowded now. But who will still be showing up in November?
It always amazes me, , how hard it is to find a parking spot at the gym after the first of the year. I always think to myself, "where were all of you a few months ago?!"
I'm not trying to attendance-shame anyone - fitness efforts are admirable ANY time of the year. It's just that jam-packed January parking lots are a visual reminder of how enthusiasm can wane over time. No matter how excited we are to start anew, there'll be plenty of places to park before long.
The same is true for our email messages and other communication intentions.
We start the year pumped and determined to reach out to our communities on a regular basis, to nurture our relationships with better correspondence, and to show that we aren't only in touch when we want donations.

Also, as part of my shift in attention, I am low-key closing the Changemakers group on Facebook. If you’re part of that group, thanks for your participation and for helping it grow over the last year plus. It has now been archived which means that you will still be able to see what has already been posted but will not be able to post anything new.
I have a few ideas for forming a future group when the time is right. Meanwhile, I welcome your suggestions for group features that would be beneficial to you.
