Every year around Thanksgiving, the Savvy Leadership Team takes stock and we count our blessings. We are fortunate to work with each other and with clients we respect, admire and enjoy. We also find it important to put things in perspective and give to an organization that serves people in real need. In past years, we have given to Heifer International, the National Alliance to End Homelessness, and Feeding America. This year, we chose to give to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
St. Jude’s mission statement is undeniably one of the most compelling of any organization we have ever supported: “The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of our founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay.”
Every member of the Savvy Leadership team is a parent. In fact, we start our weekly meetings with a round-robin session we call “Gratitude and Attitude,” and as you can imagine, our kids factor into both those categories from time to time! Mostly, we count “healthy, happy kids” on our Gratitude Lists. So, we can only imagine the fears and challenges faced by parents of children who are being treated at St. Jude.
Therefore, we all quickly agreed that we wanted to make our Savvy Gives Back 2022 gift to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. This gift is only possible because of our exceptional relationships with clients who put their faith in Savvy day after day. You are on our Gratitude list, too!
Happy Thanksgiving from the entire Savvy team!
