Kindness matters. We experience that every day through our donors. It comes in the mail, through an email, in a Facebook post, or my favorite–fan mail notes included with year-end gifts that encourage us to keep doing the work. All from the kindness and generosity of our friends, members and donors. I know many people think of donations as “support” and  it is that. But to me, it the person’s kindness that makes the gifts of support happen.

We continue to build a future on hope in a rapidly changing world. We know how, because the Huron River Watershed Council takes the long view and stands up for what is right for our home river.  It is an environmental success story, built over fifty years, that has been a powerful force for good in our watershed community.

Thanks to your generosity HRWC has built a strong track record of upholding protections, advocating for our community’s safety and health, investigating  our home waters and teaching tomorrow’s scientists. We are able to stand strong for our free-flowing Huron River and ensure ample clean water for the 650,000 residents of our watershed. Together we make a difference every day for clean water in our community.

During this season of caring, and just before the late December madness really sets in,  I wanted to thank all of you for your many acts kindness to HRWC. Thank you ever so much.

Happy Holidays,

Margaret Smith

Development Director
