Leading By Example

For those who might not be familiar, Big Day of Giving represents a significant moment when the Sacramento community unites to back its nonprofits and the critical work they perform in shaping the Sacramento area into the beloved place we call home. As nonprofit board members and community leaders, it falls upon us to live up to the principles we advocate for, to practice what we preach, and to set a strong example for others to follow. In this spirit, taking a proactive step by doing exactly what we are encouraging our community to do – to donate generously for the well-being of others and to support the causes and values we desire to proliferate in the world – stands out as one of the most impactful actions we can undertake.


Our passion at The Wish List Project is lifting the youth in our community, providing valuable opportunities for underprivileged kids and teens, helping the next generation succeed so they in turn can extend goodwill to others.

As the Chairperson of The Wish List Project Board of Directors, it is so important that I live by example in my personal life, embodying the aspirations of our organization on a personal level before I can ask others to do the same and “buy into” our mission. When we are gone, it will be our values and actions that those around us remember. This year, let’s leave a legacy of generosity and inspire others to do the same.

Please help The Wish List Project reach our goal of raising $5,000 for young people in our community during Big Day of Giving on May 4th.
