Planting Seeds of Hope

Spring is my favourite time of the year! I love watching leaves bud and flowers form and the seeds that I have planted in my garden popping up. So fun to see new life and renewal of the earth!

Yesterday I planted some sunflowers – my favourite! Sunflowers are such robust and magnificent beauties – it is remarkable to see what grows from such a small seed.

Although I could go on and on about sunflowers and spring, this letter is really not meant for that purpose. I’d like to talk to you about planting a seed that can reap a big harvest later – I’d like to talk to you about leaving a gift for The Cridge Centre in your will.

Talking about Wills can be a touchy subject so let me start by saying I’ve included The Cridge Centre in my will. It gives me a great sense of satisfaction to know that my passion and commitment to the people of The Cridge Centre will continue on after I pass. The gift won’t be huge – but it will make a difference for people who just need a seed of hope.

A seed of hope is often all it takes to help someone to move from instability and fear into a place of hope and safety. You can give that seed of hope by including The Cridge Centre in your estate plan. You may not be around to see the seed grow into a beautiful sunflower, but you will have made life better for people in your community. And THAT is a BEAUTIFUL thing!

If this is something that interests you, give me a call, or email me, and we can have a chat about some of your options. In the meantime, go plant a seed and watch for the beauty to come!

With Gratitude,
