Refocusing on Greater Lansing

Progress Report #23

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. Have an idea? Tell us about it!


Here are the major wins in this progress report:

  1. Spotlighted Nottinghame Nature Nook.
  2. Kick-off meeting for Backwards Burglar.
  3. Attended Capital Area AFP meeting.


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

  • Allot time wisely and reassess how it’s being spent regularly to stay focused on what’s really important.
  • Right now, Giving Jar is focusing on Greater Lansing charities and changing our Facebook and Twitter posts to reflect this!


Thank you, Michigan Creative, for reaching out to us and organizing the Backwards Burglar event. We also appreciate Heather Vida of Hospice of Lansing for the invitation to the Capital Area AFP meeting!

Thank you to all our new friends!

We are always looking for charities in the Greater Lansing area to write about. If you know of one, email us, tweet, or write on our Facebook wall.
