You may have noticed that the last time the Modest Needs blog was updated was last year. That's because the good people at Modest Needs have been hard at work growing the foundation and helping more people than ever before. But the team at Modest Needs knows how important it is to build and maintain a community of people--both online and off--that will continue to allow Modest Needs to give a hand, lend support and change lives with its mission.That is where I come in.
My name is Brittney Gilbert, and I have joined Modest Needs as the person in charge of outreach. This means that I will be updating this blog regularly with timely information, touching stories, interviews, videos and much, much more. We want the Modest Needs blog to become a daily destination for you--a feel-good place where you can learn and engage and build relationships with like-minded individuals.
I'm also taking over the Modest Needs Twitter account (follow us or subscribe to the feed!) which will become a much more active stream of updates. Our Facebook page is another way to get plugged in to the happy happenings at Modest Needs, and we hope you'll add yourself as a "fan" (though we prefer to call you 'friends') so you can stay up to date on all the good work, talk with others who share your interest in giving, enjoy photos of recipients of donations and maybe even some behind-the-scenes tidbits about life at the Modest Needs office.In short, we want to involve you in what we're doing at Modest Needs because Modest Needs is all about people. People like you.
Let's get personal. Let's share our stories. Let's make each other laugh. Let's touch others. Let's get together and make something special. With your involvement we can create a community that will inspire people in new and awesome ways.
Please join us in all the fun.
That said, let's hear from you now in the comments section below.
What would you like to see featured on the Modest Needs blog? Video? Stories? Reporting? The sky is the limit, and with your feedback we can turn this place into a daily stop for you that can forever change the lives of others.
I really look forward to hearing from you soon. The sooner, the better!
