You know that your mission is important, but how can you engage potential supporters? Statistics are important, but sharing them in a way that illustrates the human side of your work is key. In this session you will learn the importance of sharing stories that illustrate the work, identify your story, and practice telling it so that your mission can connect with the hearts of others.
A picture may be worth a thousand words, but a true and well told story can capture the heart forever.
