This three-day Labor Day weekend signals the end of summer and officially launches the fall/winter fundraising season. So, take in a movie, clean out that closet that you’ve been meaning to, buy yourself something pretty, try going an hour without checking your smartphone and breathe in the calm air.
Starting Tuesday you’re gonna need all your strength, patience and energy. Just looking at the MySweetCharity Calendar for the fall is daunting.
This year is going to be especially challenging for fundraisers with oil practically being given away and the stock market acting like a hyperactive Jack-in-the-Box.
P.S. — Remember that means banks and government offices like the postal services will be taking Monday off.
