Anxious Inspiration

Progress Report #18

Progress reports are Giving Jar’s way of celebrating Success, learning from Failure, giving Thanks, and taking a peek at what’s Up and Coming. Hopefully, you will find this progress report informative. As always, all feedback is welcome!


Here are the major wins in this progress report:

  1. Spotlighted Origami Brain Injury Rehabilitation Center.
  2. Got our 501(c)(3) designation!
  3. Did all weekly tasks remotely.


Failure is okay if you learn from it. Here are some lessons learned in the past two weeks:

  • Vacations are great opportunity to become inspired.
  • Vacations are a great way to feel anxious about not getting enough done!


Thank you to all of our recent interviewees (Tammy, Yvonne, Jessica, and Deanna) for putting in 2+ hours of interviews. We hope the extra time comes through in our spotlights!

Thank you to our new friends on social media:

  • 23 mailing list members (-0)

Here’s where the focus will be in the next two weeks at Giving Jar:
