The best holiday message yet

I was just talking with our editorial director, Betsy Bair, who told me about this wonderful note she received from someone in our industry (who wishes to remain anonymous):

    In the high deserts of New Mexico, where I was born, the Navajo -- among the most ancient people of the Americas -- are now some of the poorest. As my holiday gift to you -- colleagues and friends around the virtual campfire of our association -- I hope you will be warmed by the knowledge that a Navajo family will spend a winter around a woodstove given in your name. May the smoke from those fires reach your soul and give you peace.

That is the loveliest holiday greeting I've seen in this b2b environment. If you'd like to do the same, now or at any time of the year, to show your appreciation for colleagues and clients, get in touch with the Southwest Indian Foundation (this donation is under the "Special Projects" section.)
