Inspiration Begets Inspiration

Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to share with you a touching email we’ve received from an inspired and inspiring young woman from the other side of the world.  How inspiring for us to read this.  This is fuel that keeps us going!

Dear everyone:

I’m a non-profit major at Lindenwood University smack dab in the center of Missouri, U.S.A. I am writing a paper for one of my classes on an NGO like yourselves– actually, I am doing it on you guys. I found you on Idealist.org and I just had to email you about how much you really inspire me. I know you guys are probably super busy and everything, so I won’t make this long and drawn out, but when I started college, I had no idea what I wanted to do. All I have ever really known is that I want to get out of this place I am in, and I want to help somehow. I see organizations like yours, and I just get that warm internal feeling– it’s a perfect fit. I hope one day to be helping our world as much as you do; I don’t know where you find the time and energy to be so passionate about this, but I hope that one day I can find that same conviction in much the same place. I’m only 20 years old, so I have a long way to go, and much more to learn before I can really make any contributions to society and be any kind of benefit to an organization like Little and Loud, but I just wanted to let you know that you give me hope, and maybe one day I can return the favor. Perhaps not in kind, but… some how. As women, as professionals, and as people who just give a damn (pardon my french), I believe our world keeps turning because of the things you do and the impact you’re making.

I hope you never lose steam,
Rachel
