Welcome to our new blog! It is “our” blog because it is intended to be a dialog–a conversation among those of us who care about the health and well-being of the South Carolina Lowcountry. Through this venue I hope to provide some insight into the Community Foundation and its work, its values, and its vision; to give perspectives on current philanthropic issues; and to comment on trends that will likely have an impact on the social fabric of the communities in our part of the world. You are encouraged to join the conversation, to share the topics which are on your mind, and to become an active part of YOUR community foundation–the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry.
The title of the blog itself–Everyday Matters: Every DAY Matters!–is a personal motto of sorts. There is much to do. There is no time to waste. Every day matters. Every person matters. Every dollar matters. Every effort matters. And in fact, this is the everyday business of the Community Foundation. Through this blog, we can share what that means to us, what can be done, and how we can each have a role. Through this blog, we hope you will share what you are doing, and what your ideas may be for doing the work of community-building into the future.
So, as a starting place, give me your thoughts about this new Web site, the blog concept, and anything else you might wish to have us consider as a topic for future dialog. And don’t let a single day go by in which you’ve not done something to improve the quality of life for our friends and neighbors here in the Lowcountry! After all, every day matters.
