Our fund was originally set up by Kendall's parents as a gift. They have always been so generous with our family, and in the community, and we're full of gratitude for that. By setting up this fund, they made the first step and then we chose to match it. And once we got into it, we realized the value and efficiency of the idea of giving through GNOF. You can participate in ways that work for you. It's been a really positive experience.
Gratification comes from doing good things for others. It's a wonderful gift when you're at a point in your life where you can be generous. We are inspired by the incredible local efforts here in New Orleans, especially those that are highly effective and tangible.
