The response to our Pay It Backward Weekend (see previous post) has been overwhelming. Out of the 36 organizations we invited, we now expect 33 to attend. Even better, their gratitude has made us happier than ever, that we decided to quit talking about doing this and just pull the trigger! Two of the people I spoke with even told me that when they awarded the stay to a member of their organization, that person started to cry. Of course that prompted some commentary among ourselves that if the reaction to a stay at the Antlers was tears … what exactly does that mean?
No, no, no … these were tears of joy … honest.
This letter we received today is a great example of why we’re so pleased to be able to do this. We think we’re the lucky ones!
