And so, another strange year shudders to a close: a year of ups and downs, vaccines and variants, extreme weather and extremely persistent-against-the-odds optimism.
Working here at Reasons to be Cheerful, we’re lucky enough to spend our days immersed in this optimism: in solutions, improvements and endeavors to make the world a better place. If you’re a regular RTBC reader, you might recognize this feeling — the sense that rousing, inspiring transformations are taking place in every little corner of the globe.
We feel strongly that these stories of positive change are more than just a balm. They can generate and propel more changes like them, simply by getting the word out. With your support, we’ll continue to do that. Reasons to be Cheerful is a nonprofit publication. As we close out our year-end fundraising drive, please consider making a tax-deductible donation. We’ve almost met our goal to match our special donor’s $20,000 challenge — your gift could push us over the finish line.
As always, thank you for your support, and happy holidays.
