You’ve heard it said, “You can’t take it with you. There are no U-Haul’s behind hearses.”
Yet, we forget the incredible legacy we can leave. We call them life-prints.
Fingerprints are used to find out who was here when they are no longer here. If they identify you through fingerprints, it’s usually not a good thing.
Think about it in a positive sense: what would you like to leave your “life-prints” on? The people, causes, and institutions you care about deeply, right?
One of my life-prints is the relationship I build with my daughter on our annual father/daughter weekend at Camp Highland.
It is also a cause we give to financially because of the great work Camp Highland does for families, kids, and the counselors they train.
In this case we live a life-print through our contribution to Camp Highland, but Camp Highland also leaves it’s life-print on me!
Help your donors leave more and more “life-prints” on the people, causes, and institutions they care about deeply.
Get them to give, but also get them involved!
“No act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted.”
