Happy Thanksgiving

Dear Friend,
Last Saturday, Isles’ Legacy Celebration brought over 300 people to our new Social Profit Center for a big party.  Folks from all walks of my life turned out.  That diverse room reminded all of us of what it takes to impact the world – not just a village, but multiple villages across old boundaries that too often constrain us! 
Thanks to all the family, friends, donors, colleagues and supporters that made it such a special evening.  For those that couldn’t join us, take look at a short video.
This time of year, we give thanks to you for helping us build healthy, fun places and communities – alongside those that live and work there!  Our work is literally impossible without you.
In the coming days, you’ll receive a request for support from Isles, describing the impacts you made possible in 2019.  We’ll also launch our online #GivingTuesday campaign just after Thanksgiving.
At a time when so many question fact from fiction, good from bad, isn’t it good to know that vital work moves forward here, at a very low cost?  You can help grow it this holiday season! 
As I retire from the CEO position after 39 years, I give thanks for the chance to be a builder at Isles, and to create a productive career along the way.  As we transition, your support is needed more than ever. 
Thanks again for being there for Isles – and me!

From all of us here at Isles, have a very Happy Thanksgiving.
