My Name is Elsha
I’m a mother, an artist and volunteer. I am a retired manager of a Wellspring centre, and I have been a caregiver to a loved one with cancer. I am also a proud member of the Roots of Renewal Club at Wellspring.
A few weeks ago I sent you a letter in the mail, telling a bit about the personally rewarding relationship I have had with Wellspring over the years. I wanted to share with you just how important this organization has been to me, and why I have chosen to support Wellspring through monthly gifts.
I have been privileged to be a part of Wellspring for the past twenty years, as a member, a manager of the Downtown Toronto centre, and now as a volunteer. Over the years, I’ve seen firsthand how the programs and services available at Wellspring have made profound differences in the lives of thousands of individuals and families who are living with cancer. And, that Wellspring is able to do this life-changing work, all, and only, because of the generosity of those, like you and me, who understand the need for such a resource within our communities.
Having managed a Wellspring centre, I was also witness to the rigour with which resources are monitored so that as much of the donated funds as possible are focused on providing help for those who rely on our services. I chose to contribute monthly – joining the Roots of Renewal club – so that my donations can help Wellspring in more impactful ways. It also means that I can budget my giving more easily by spreading my gift over the years, and, it saves Wellspring money because they don’t have to keep reminding me of the importance of making another gift.
I do hope you, too, will consider joining the Roots of Renewal Club and see firsthand how your gift can make a really big difference to many individuals and families, all year long.
Thank you, Elsha
