As I look forward to Thanksgiving this week, I can't help but reflect and be grateful for how you have supported The Move Project through the years. It is easy to get caught up in the seemingly mundane project work, worrying if we're proceeding too slowly, if our neighbors in Tsipasi fully understand how committed we are as we chip away at the needs on their behalf. I'd love for all the money to be here, right now, but if that were to happen the journey would look different and it wouldn't include most of you. So, for that, I'm truly thankful for all of you. Some have been involved since TMP's inception and others have joined along the way and we couldn't have done anything without each of you.
I've met some of you on the street and I've meet hundreds of you at The Water Ride. It's truly amazing to look back and see how our paths has crossed. The vision behind TMP is always to include as many people as we can to see what we can accomplish together. It's been clear from the start that this work takes a village and you've shown up. You've answered the call. Over the years you have shown up at the homeless shelter to serve those less fortunate. You have installed water wells to provide access to clean water for two communities that had never had access before. You are now in the middle of building a primary school for nearly 200 children so they can learn in a safe and productive environment. You're doing this and for that I'm thankful.
May you go in peace this Thanksgiving holiday and take a moment to reflect on all there is to be thankful for.
