The annual birthday tradition continues!!

Little Brothers Friends of the Elderly is an incredible organization. Through LBFE, I met John, my "elder" for 5+ years. John and I were birthday neighbors - I'm March 19th, he's the 20th - with quite a few years in-between. I've been doing a birthday fundraiser for LBFE for a few years now, but it's taken on a new meaning since John passed. I fundraise in his honor, for the organization that meant so much to him (and me).

April will mark one year on the LBFE board for me, and I'm so proud of the work we've done this year. We've set up peer-to-peer calls for our elders, sent care packages with masks + hand sanitizer + food, pivoted our annual gala to a virtual concert, and grown our tech allies program to help elders stay connected. We've partnered with a local SF bakery to send birthday treats. All new, nothing we've ever done before, in an effort to ensure our elders feel connected and remembered in this chaotic year. Every phone call I make to an elder includes an unprompted (and often emotional) "thank you" for everything LBFE's done this year to make sure they know they're not alone.

Covid has thrown a wrench into our fundraising plans, but nothing we can't tackle! In lieu of guest bartending, birthday concerts, and bake sales, we'll be doing a craft sale. I've taught myself the art of the loom, and learned to make some cool looking bracelets - and I have incredibly talented (and generous) friends, as well! Please note, these are NOT professionally crafted (the wall weavings especially) - please be forgiving of the flaws, and know they were made with so much love!
