This is why I do what I do...

Today at the office, my to-do list had "graphics" on it.

As in, design a cover (for our grant guides) and similarly themed covers for the grant application books that will follow later in the year.

No, prior to this job, I had never had any graphic design experience/responsibilities. While I am not at all a creator of images, I have turned out to be quite adept at the finding of quality stock photos and editing them into professional publications.

As I set about the creative process, I got set on the theme of "helping hands." The collage below is just a compilation, graphic "brainstorming" if you will, of what will be on our grant application books - Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

And it hit me....this is why I do just what it is that I do here. We help persons from all walks, from infancy to death, in the meeting of basic needs like food, shelter and clothing, to accessing health care and education.

I couldn't do just one "thing," me being me - ever the proponent of wholistic solutions in life - and seeing it put like this just made me really happy.


  1. It's a lovely collage! The idea of the different types of hands speaks volumes! Very nice.

  2. that's really good and i love the premise behind it!
    take care, have a great day!
