I'm extremely proud to announce today that Loews Hotels had selected Modest Needs as their 2007 National 'Good Neighbor' partner.
This partnership, which is the first of its kind for both Loews Hotels and Modest Needs, is designed to raise both funds for and awareness of the work we do at Modest Needs throughout the year via events that will take place at Loews Hotels across the United States. Needless to say, this is a priceless opportunity for Modest Needs, and I can't wait to see what happens in May, when we hold our first such event.
Recently, Loews Hotels and Modest Needs would jointly and officially announced our partnership. Well, announce it we did - and I couldn't believe what happened as a result. Are you ready for this?
As of the afternoon of 22 March, no fewer than 22 publications on the 'net and elsewhere had picked up the Loews / Modest Needs partnership story, including (and this is just the short list):
- AOL Money & Finance
- Yahoo! Finance
- The Dallas Morning News (Gabe - this one's for you. Show your friends!)
- The Denton Record-Chronicle
- The Providence Journal
- Greater Richmond Technology Council; and
- Hotel & Motel Management
Now THAT'S what I call 'An Announcement!' If you have a minute, be sure to check out some of the links above. If you like the work we do at Modest Needs, you'll love hearing them talk about it in venues like 'Forbes!'
Just one last quick note: I've gotten a lot of wonderful feedback from our most recent (and long overdue) new installment of 'Profiles in Courageous Generosity,' The Giving Ladder.
If you haven't had a chance to read this piece yet, please take a minute to enjoy it for yourself. I think you'll come away with a new appreciate for the power of human kindness - of your kindness - to change lives.
More soon - until then, have a wonderful day!
