by Carrie Bornstein, Acting Executive Director

Thank you.

Thank you to all 1,254 of you who made a contribution, in any amount, to Mayyim Hayyim in 2011.  Whether you gave early in the year, right up until the end, or anytime in between… Whether we asked you directly, whether you chose to give unprompted… Your support helps us begin 2012 in a place of strength.  And really, isn’t that what we all want as January makes its debut?

So feel good about what you gave.  Know that your dollars are helping us take good care of people just like you, and the people you love.  Know that we can become even stronger in the coming year because you are joining us on this journey.

Mayyim Hayyim has always been predicated on communal involvement.  Our volunteer Mikveh Guides, the organizations who join as members, and all who offer financial support along the way reflect this value.

As an organization, Mayyim Hayyim is thankful to each one of you.  Yet this thank-you is from the community, too.  Had we not received this widespread support, Mayyim Hayyim would not be in a position to thrive and grow.

As we make our way into this new year, may we continue to support each other, feel good about our accomplishments, and know that our involvement truly makes a difference.
