At the US National BNI Directors’ Conference, the BNI Directors supported our charitable work and donated over $1800 to our charitable work. Ivan and I promised to match the donations which came in at the conference, so that brought our total raised to just over $3600. THEN on Sunday morning, Andrea and Mark Stough of BNI SW FL had a group dance card with Dr. Misner. Their young son, Brendon, gave a cash donation of $50 to the BNI Foundation!
Please read the following letter from our BNI Boston Executive Director, Patti Salvucci:

I recently interviewed Jonathan Jenkins, member of BNI Platinum Coast Chapter in Lake Forest, CA, and immediate past Education Coordinator. Last year he filmed all his chapter members’ presentations and made them available, branded with their company’s material, at no cost to them! He is a real giver and he has the distinction of being the first BNI member to support the BNI Foundation with monthly contributions in our Super Hero program.
Here are the highlights of my interview:

You’ve probably heard that BNI has a charitable foundation called the BNI Foundation, which has donated almost two million dollars to charitable causes. However, when it comes to knowing where all that money comes from, where it goes, and what the Foundation really is all about, you might still be scratching your head.
The best way to learn the simple facts about the Foundation and stay in the know about how BNI is helping to make the world a better place is to click “Like” on the Foundation’s Facebook page.
Hurricane Sandy careened across the Northeast and mid-Atlantic regions of the United States leaving a path of devastation in its wake; the BNI Foundation is responding to the great need for immediate disaster relief by opening a special relief fund for the Red Cross.
BNI feels deep sympathy and concern for all those affected by this disaster, so the BNI Foundation will match the first $10,000 donated to the fund. One hundred percent of all donations made for disaster relief will go directly to the Red Cross.
