Dear Friends and Fans of Modest Needs,

Greetings! I hope this note finds you and your family happy, healthy, and preparing to celebrate a joyous holiday season with the people who matter most to you.

Today, I'm writing to ask for your help with a very special project. Short version? As you may have read, this year, a major donor made it possible for us to offer a $50,000.00 matching grant on Giving Tuesday. That person was so happy with the response to that match that the matching grant has now been tripled to an astonishing $150,000.00, and we've been given the rest of the year to claim as much of it as we can!

On behalf of our applicants, and in the spirit of the season, I'm writing to ask if, today, you'd please consider helping us to claim as much of this matching grant as possible by making a special year-end gift to Modest Needs. Any contribution you're willing to make at this time will be matched 100%, so your gift means more to our applicants right now than at any other time of the year!

If you're willing and able to help, you can make the tax-deductible contribution of your choice securely and in two minutes or less simply by using our quick donation form. But even if you can't help right now, please know how very much I appreciate your taking the time to read this very important update and your being a part of the Modest Needs community.

Thank you so very much in advance for doing anything you can to help us claim the whole of this tremendous, year-end matching grant. I look forward to hearing from you soon, but in the meantime, here's wishing you and your family a holiday season and New Year filled with more health and happiness than your lives can possibly contain. Take care, and be well!

Dr. Keith P. Taylor
President / Executive Director

P.S. With all the tragic news stories we've seen over just the past month, I though you might appreciate a little “pick-me-up.” So below, please find the ‘violin concert video' we received from the little girl whose arm was replaced by folks like you earlier this year. Enjoy, and again, thank you!
