The video above is my annual gift to you. It begins with a simple, yet insightful Zen parable entitled “The Parrot.” It was crafted especially for you and will take only 6 minutes of your time to enjoy. I thank artist, Gloria Shaw, and web designer, Wendy Loftin, for their beautiful work to make all of this possible.
Love the world as your own self; then you can truly care for all things. ~ Lao-tzu
It is only through your tax-deductible gifts that Aspire can continue to serve humankind. I hope that you have found Aspire helpful in your own life this year and will help us to continue. Your tax deductible gifts are needed to help pay for airtime and website services and to maintain crucial equipment and other supplies used to support the services Aspire offers to help humankind.
Every week I work with the dying through Hospice, seeking to offer insight and the blessing of Love to those who are leaving their bodies. There are so many now. And through our Batmo project, as an extension of the services Aspire offers, I also provide much needed assistance to children and families in need throughout our community. These services can only happen through the generosity of your Year End Gift…and especially the regular monthly or quarterly gifts from those who become Aspire Sponsors – true visionaries who understand what Aspire offers in this world.
It is when you give of yourself that you truly give. ~ Kahlil Gibran
Our Mystery Donor will MATCH ALL GIFTS and also MATCH ALL SPONSORSHIPS made to Aspire now thru January 2, 2023 which multiplies your gifts to be of even greater help. A gift of $25 becomes $50, a gift of $50 becomes $100, a gift of $250 becomes $500…and so on. The generosity of the Mystery Donor keeps Aspire viable through the difficult months of the year when donations are sparse. Without him, Aspire will end. Please honor his generosity by offering your own.
Please do not wait to give…every penny counts and helps me to plan and budget in order to continue to serve those in Hospice and around the world who need help.
Thank you for your understanding.
In Love and service to you,
Gregory Penn, DD
