29 Jun Donor Corner: Mary Morrissey on the Blessing of Giving

Best-selling author, international speaker, renowned empowerment specialist, and Founder of the Brave Thinking Institute, Mary Morrissey, has been an incredible supporter and advocate of the Unstoppable Foundation from the beginning. She’s shared our mission at her events for over a decade and inspired thousands of DreamBuilders to contribute and experience what it’s like to be a philanthropist.

In 2008, I made an ongoing monthly commitment to the mission of the Unstoppable Foundation and to be part of making a difference for kids and families.

At the moment, I made the commitment, I felt good about it.

But then, something amazing happened.

The next morning when I put my feet on the floor, I had a different feeling about myself.

I knew that because I walked this earth and had decided that a portion of my life’s ‘good’ would be now in dedication and service to helping children I would never meet and families I would never know, I knew my life brought impact in a way I had never felt before.

Giving in this way was such a powerful and enriching experience for me that since then, I’ve upped my commitment each year because of the life-giving Power of Giving.

The Unstoppable Foundation gives me and our community of DreamBuilders the opportunity to be part of something much bigger than ourselves, something we would never have had the privilege of being part of, says Mary.
