I’m always impressed and a little excited at the start of each year’s campaign, to watch the thermometer start its skyward climb. We had a great first 24 hours after Dr. Callender’s letter went out, getting close to $50K. It’s a great beginning and compares well with past years. The challenge is to keep the “needle” moving; usually giving during the campaign follows an inverted bell curve, with lots of activity at the beginning and a flurry again at the end, with a drop in the middle. I’m usually one of those coming in toward the end, but this year plan to do it earlier. With some holidays and a lot of work stacked up, the sooner I get it done the better. Hope you’ll follow my lead.
