Something to read and cherish
Former First Daughter, Jenna Bush Hager, 35, has a grandfather who is known for handwriting thank-you notes.
She says, “…It’s important to write letters to let people know how you feel and to make sure they know how grateful you are for whatever they’ve done. My grandfather was a terrific letter writer… and not just thank-you notes. He wrote profound letters that we still read and cherish.”
I had the pleasure of taking a one-year course about fundraising at Harvard University a few years ago. Jenna’s twin sister, Barbara, runs a big philanthropic organization, Global Health Corps. We talked about thank-yous one night over margaritas. She, too, makes a habit of reaching out when anyone has done something nice for her.
