I stood at the base of the massive tree in awe. Scaffolding circled the tree’s limbs from trunk to top while workers diligently decorated the annual tribute to the holiday season. Hundreds of people gathered in amazement around the construction zone, taking pictures of the famous Rockefeller Christmas Tree.
Tara and I had the pleasure of being invite to New York City for a beautiful celebration of our Legacy Gift program with Saks Fifth Avenue. The famous Madison Avenue retailer had chosen Taylor’s Gift to be the charity beneficiary for their women’s “Winter Style Show.” Combined with the opportunity to arrange a few business meetings for the foundation, we couldn’t turn down the trip.
We are honored to have had the opportunity to work with Saks Fifth Avenue. Visiting New York to raise funds specifically for our Legacy Gift program that helps assist donor families in the New York area, while bringing much needed attention to the needs surrounding organ donation, was a wonderful opportunity for Taylor’s Gift.
Taylor Blue Gets People Talking
While friends gathered and shopped through the beautiful women’s “SFA Collection,” Tara and myself met, mingled, and thanked the guests for coming. We gave a shortpresentation where we shared the need for organ donor registrations and highlighted the help being provided by our Legacy Gift program through our partnership with New York Organ Donor Network.
Outlive Yourself: Giving a Gift That Costs $0
During the holiday season, many of us look for ways to take a step back from the buying frenzy and celebrate family and traditions. I’d like to ask you to make a new tradition of asking your friends and family what “Outlive Yourself” means to them. You will be amazed at the ways people want to leave the world a better place than they found it.
